Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

I. think it is too much rigamarole for these guns. I have read where guns were stored and shipped in steel airtight barrels . Most will be mixmasters, but it 20 years they may the holy grail

True enough. Just not worth it to me, I guess

As badly as I'd like to get one - I agree that spending $850/$950/$1050 (Rack/Field/Service) for one is more than I wanted to spend. Plus the process is somewhat onerous.

And you can add on the FFL transfer fee 40-80 bucks and maybe shipping? To me it is a fair price when you see what new colts or intact military .45 autos go for at gun shows. Of late prices have been CRAZY! I wonder if there is a limit so dealers can not buy a group for resale at gun shows. For people that want a nice USGI marked 45, its about the going price. You most likely will need a new replacement barrel. And it is high enough that those that want to buy for resale will not be able to profit too much. I think it was a well thought out plan, and the real collector grade, complete ,or rare pistols will go top price to collectors at auction in order to promote CMP activities.
And if the rack grade is as worn out as the ones we had on guard duty in the marines-- you might be better off with an Argentine Molina :lol: I love mine and they were around $350-400 back 5 years ago.
Watch the price of NOS, USGI barrels and magazines go sky high. I bet intact grips and original holsters will double in price.

For new in the box, USGI style, cheep shooters ----Rock Islands go around $450 and Auto Ordnance's go about $550. And you can hit the target :lol: If you have a shot out, worn out, dog barrel on your rack grade you should be able to hit the target, just that it will be the one next to the one you are aiming at. :roll: :roll: :roll: :think:

Think, you are paying for a real USGI piece of history, not a shooter. They will reek of history and patina and look fantastic in a nice used holster. Well, they will look great - the only problem is; just that you will not be able to see what you get. They pick the pistol to send. I think the auction with photos will be the way to purchase. :idea: :arrow: :shhh: :shifty: Sounds like one per person- another great idea so those that want one will have access to one.
Here is a huge factor to consider:
Note: If you have already purchased a 1911 from CMP you will not be allowed to purchase an auction 1911. If you purchase an auction 1911, your name will be pulled from the sequenced list. No repeat purchasers are allowed until all orders received have been filled.

Shipping is included and there are no repeat purchases until all orders are filled.
I won't be buying one as I just bought an all original closet find black army with holster for 1200 😁

One will also have to meet the CMP eligibility requirements and be a CMP club member.

At least on the outside, a lot of those pistols look barely used.
Arguing with someone who denounces reason is like administering medicine to a corpse.

Thanks for posting the article. Those rebuilt like new mix masters with the ANAD marks and the light gray Parkerized finish look nasty. You would really have to want to spend some cash for a $1000 park job. :doh: :doh: Now an original blue would be a nice collectable to have. Seems those will be auction items.

I know 2 FFLs that won't send a copy of their license to non-FFLs. but for transfers from other FFLs or dealers, wholesalers. don't see how he can stay in business not doing that
