Lee’s note: This just in from the Civilian Marksmanship Program: The Army is only going to allow CMP to sell 8,000 1911s during this fiscal year.
CMP 1911s Update – 5/9/2018:
While the National Defense Authorization Act granted transfer of a maximum of 10,000 1911s per year to the CMP, the Secretary of the Army allowed only 8,000 1911s to be transferred to the CMP for sale and distribution this fiscal year. Some of those are anticipated to be unusual and worthy of being auctioned. The remaining number will be sold based on a computerized Random Number Generator.
The CMP does not know what next year’s allotment might be.
The CMP has additional details regarding the 1911s for sale through CMP 1911. Please visit our website at www.TheCMP.org/1911/ to view updated Sales Information.
