    M1911A1s thru CMP someday?

    If this amendment passes, I plan to stand in line for one. Might be worth contacting your parasites, er, Congressional delegation in DC to express your support.

    FUQ from http://www.guns.com/2015/05/08/house...s-through-cmp/ : "An add-on to the upcoming National Defense Authorization Act that passed committee includes a plan to transfer the U.S. Army’s remaining stock of .45 ACP 1911A1 pistols to the Civilian Marksmanship Program...An influx of 100,000 highly-collectable handguns, largely all made before 1945, would likely revitalize the organization, and ensure its work for years to come."

    Same as for the CMP M1 Garands, effective membership in a CMP affiliated club is required.

    Angry And the hysteria begins

    The blatantly false "reporting" about this amendment has begun. HuffPo wants us to believe these M1911s would be "untraceable" and available "over the internet" without a background check. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/0...n_7265184.html

    I hope they go back to their strict limit of one per person, and keep the price down to intrinsic value. These deserve to be spread out across the spectrum of us, not just for the rich collectors.

    Personally if I were buying a 1911 I would want to buy a modern new one with better steel, better fed ramps most likely a better side to frame fit and not all beat to heck.

    There are most likely some real gems among them but most well have most of there life shot out of them and well need work.

    Th.at said I hope they become available.

    It's my understanding that the new defense authorization bill paves the way for these sales

    About page 190

    "Transfer of surplus firearms to Corporation for the Promotion of
    Rifle Practice and Firearms Safety (sec. 1087)
    191The House bill contained a provision (sec. 1085) that
    would authorize the transfer of surplus firearms to the Civilian
    Marksmanship Program (CMP).
    The Senate amendment contained no similar provision.
    The Senate recedes with a clarifying amendment that
    establishes a pilot program limited to .45 caliber handguns and
    restricts the amount of handguns that can be transferred to the
    CMP to no more than 10,000 units annually. Additionally, it
    requires the CMP to provide a report to Congress after the
    conclusion of the pilot program, obtain a federal firearm
    license to conduct any and all handgun sales, and adhere to all
    local, state, and federal laws in respect to handgun sales.
