I don't really want to self-advertise, and this is already old news at this point, but for those of you who are living under a rock, CMP 1911's have been confirmed by the NDAA for fiscal year 2016.


Also, do you guys like these kinds of videos? I want to do more, but I need to know if people like them or not. One video I did a while back on the ATF M855 issue got very good feedback. 100% upvoted in fact. Still, these take a while, so if they get me subs and views, I'm happy to do them when something big goes down. :)

Can't see the vidio......... what has been confirmed????

I can't believe this......................... Obama putting guns on the street????

President Obama recently signed the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act into law, which included a provision to sell more than 100,000 1911A1 pistols being held in government storage to the public via the Civilian Marksmanship Program.
It's wonderful to see these historic pistols being released to collectors and shooters.

Those of us living in areas where there are no true shooting clubs and nobody has ever heard of the CMP will never, ever, have an opportunity to purchase any of those firearms.


By the way, it's always a good time to buy another 1911.

...?

From their site:

If you have any difficulty in locating a club, please contact the CMP at 256-835-8455 or by emailing CMP Customer Service. We will find one for you. In addition to shooting clubs, the CMP also has several special affiliates. Membership in these organizations satisfies our requirement for purchase. These special affiliates include: Congressionally chartered veterans' organizations such as the VFW, AL, DAV, MCL, etc. U.S. Military services (active or reserves), National Guard, to include retirees. Professional 501(c)3 law enforcement organizations and associations such as the FOP, NAPO, NSA, etc. The Garand Collector's Association is a CMP Affiliated Club. You can download a Garand Collector's Association Application Form.

The New York State Rifle and Pistol Association qualifies as an affiliated club. So just join that. Or for twenty five bucks join the Garand Collectors Association and that qualifies also.

I wish Cuomo was as anti-gun as Obama. Obama just talks gun control and GOP uses him as a scarecrow. Indoctrinated and gullible take the bate.

I didn't know NYSRPA qualified as a club. In regards to other comments, I was thinking that it could be problematic since some of my local clubs require "club service" to become a member. You have to put in x-amount of work a year for them or something. Which admittedly, is probably more than I'm willing to invest being that I'm in college and I'll take any free time I can get at this point...

I'll have to look into that, though. Thanks for the tip PY-Tactical. (And Mosinitis)

Any guess as to what price these may sell for ?
Well if we use their Garands as a guide, I'd bet you could get a real junker for quite cheap. Overall, I'd say they'll probably range from $400-$2000 or perhaps more for special ones in great condition. But I'd bet you could get a pretty decent one for $500-600, but we may be surprised. But hoping for any better than that may not be realistic.

I've been reading up on this, quite a bit obviously... Some dude who was apparently in the Navy said that most of the 1911's they had stored were pieces of garbage that rattled and couldn't hit the broad side of a barn and continued by saying he did excellent with his own match-grade .45.

Is the situation that bad? I think that may be a little exaggerated. But we just don't know at this point. :(

More like a good time to buy my first one... Except I'm not old enough for a pistol permit yet. :/

Per the legislation I believe these will have to go through a FFL, and must follow all of the usual requirements in states requiring permits to own one like here in NYS. Being that I'm in Nassau and don't have a pistol permission slip even if I put in my paperwork tomorrow these would all be sold out long before I'd be allowed to buy one....

A former Nassau bro here.

Isn't it a "may issue" county, or whatever the term is? Good luck ever getting a handgun there... Or so I've heard. :'(

P.S., Trojan on the NY Firearms homepage, for some reason... There must be some sort of witchcraft afoot here.
Nah, no witch craft, targeted ads. They show content relevant to your browsing history. Porn gets you Trojan ads :rofl:
