This is going to be fun to watch. I can hear the whiners already. I got mine about 25 years ago. All original RR. Paid a whopping $395. I'll pass on these

Back in 1992 could buy a house for $75,000.00 in my town that now sells for $675,000.00 so I'd say you got ripped off!!

I got mine for $65.00 35 years ago, and I got nothing to whine about.

Got mine for less than $200 17 years ago so no whining here. Well actually is a commercial Colt 1911 from 1919. I'm sure there are dummies that really think CMP will let the good stuff go with all the beaters they will be releasing.

Yeah I'm sure they will throw in some Singers in the ones they sell for $1000.

I wonder if the Army will turn over M15s and NM 1911s as part of the overall package to the CMP?

The question I've wondered is, considering there are only 100,000 pistols left out of millions on hand at one time, did the military keep the best back or give away the better quality as military assistance and law enforcement donations in prior years?

I guess we'll soon know!

Didn't some get destroyed during the Clinton era? I know during that era he gave Mexico some M1 Carbines who knows how many 1911's were given in MAP programs too.

I'm sure a lot were left with the South Vietnamese.

I would have loved to do this but I didn't exist back then.

What we paid for houses and guns years ago is if no consequence. The only thing that matters is if willing buyers and sellers agree on price. That is how markets are made. CMP sells Garlands for a bit below market. Maybe they will sell Colts for a bit below market price, but in the end the market will rule. It always does.

Just read the latest email from the CMP regarding the 1911s and noticed something. We will need to submit a signed copy of the receiving FFl's license. Just curious, how willing are FFL's to give out signed copies of their license?
