One of the FAQs on the CMP site Q: Will CMP be selling .45s A: No

Things do change LOL. This is all about a money pot not anything at all abut 2nd Amendment or good will toward us gun collectors.

Too soon to see anything on CMP web page. He just signed this yesterday. I gotta find me an affiliated club real quick.

SCOTTY,
I have signed up for the 1911's-- the jeep's--- and several other goverment surplus..
never ever have I got anything as to where to buy them much less got any.
if you remember the jeep's for $100? I signed up mother's--girl-friend's and every-body I could think of.
never found a single person that got one!
I have heard of the 1911's and m-1 grand's for years never heard of any-body getting one.
look up the m-1 grand's $100 each 1 per person.

If this 1911 sell off in fact is true, I am sure it is only because the Army is seeking to replace the Beretta with a striker fired platform and the administration is broke after the F35 program cost over runs. I read yesterday the Airforce may even order more F15 / F16 planes with high tech revisions as opposed to F35 units.

As long as Obama doesn't block the sales to the public like he has done with the importation of M1 Garands, and carbines. :angry5:

Here's the link to the CMP stores where you can acquire items such as a M1 rifle.
http://thecmp.org/cmp_sales/cmp-stores/

All the info that is needed to obtain such items from the CMP is provided by the links on that page.
The nearest store to Florida is the Anniston, AL store.

1,000's upon 1,000's of Americans have obtained surplus rifles from the CMP program.

It is not difficult if one is serious about pursuing it.

Yup,
Basically hillary under the current administration illegally blocked the CMP from providing those rifles form returning from Korea, and being available to us all as they should be.

Total BS

I am assuming that as soon as we have a REAL POTUS and Dept of State those same guns will be imported. As I understand the terms of Lend Lease they can not be sold to anybody, only returned back to us. Question seems to be how damned long do we have to wait?

Last I looked the 1911s haven't made it to CMP yet. The initial post I made was the day after Obama signed the bill allowing it. Again.......... How damned long do we have to wait?

I have quite a few friends here who have got CMP M1 Garands and one that has got an M1Carbine. Don't know anybody that has got a 1903 Springfield though. I do know several folks who have '03s though just not from CMP.

I guy that I work with was at the CMP store in Anniston a few weeks ago and asked about the 1911s. Supposedly, they already have some but are waiting on the green light to sell them.

I received a CMP 1903 rifle made by Remington a few years back, and it was in really nice condition.
