      CMP has put out the process for selling 1911s.

      It won't be happening soon but should be within the coming year.

      One per year and a random number generator will be used after they have 10000 orders.

      When your number comes up you get to choose from pricing and grades available.
      "...But they would never find anything to beat the old Springfield ...the long sleek streamline, very slim but with potent bulges, all in the just exactly right places to give it that pugnaciously forward-leaning, eager look that marked the Springfield. Beside it, the M1 looked like a fat old man puffing with a lack of training...the two most beautiful things made in America were the ax-handle and the clipper ship? ...they should have added one more thing: The Springfield '03 rifle..."

        To all CMP constituents:

        The CMP Board of Directors has discussed at length how the sales of 1911s would be handled, if the CMP were to ever receive them from the United States Army.

        Some preliminary decisions:

        Decisions concerning the grade and pricing of the 1911s will not be made until inspection has occurred of a substantial quantity which will take an estimated 150 days post receipt.

        All laws pertaining to the sale of 1911s by CMP will be strictly obeyed.

        Potential purchasers will have to provide to CMP a new set of documents exhibiting: 1) proof of U.S. Citizenship, 2) proof of membership in a CMP affiliated club, 3) proof of participation in a marksmanship activity, 4) a new form 2A with notary, 5) successful completion of a NICS background check, 6) a signed copy of the 01 Federal Firearms License in which the 1911 will be transferred to.

        The CMP customer will be required to complete a form 4473 in person and successfully complete another NICS check by the recipient FFL holder before the pistol can be transferred.

        Qualified CMP customer will only be allowed to purchase one 1911 per calendar year.

        No 1911s available in the CMP stores, or on line, only mail order sales.

        CMP will set the date in which it will accept orders for the 1911s. The date will be posted to the world.

        Orders will only be accepted via mail order delivery.

        Orders will only be accepted post marked on the date or after, no early orders.

        Once CMP receives 10,000 orders, customer names will be loaded into the Random Number Generator.
        The Random Number Generator will provide a list of names in sequence order through a random picking process to CMP.
        Customers will be contacted in the sequence provided by the Random Number Generator.

        When the customer is contacted a list of 1911 grades and pricing options that are available will be offered for selection of one.

        As CMP proceeds down the sequenced list less grade and pricing options will be available. Again, this done completely random.
