From the CMP newsletter I got yesterday:
"An update on the 1911 pistols. The revised NDAA has passed the House and Senate. It is on its way to the President's desk for signature. We have no further information at this time."

Fingers crossed that this gets signed as part of the NDAA and he doesn't read the pertinent parts or that he must sign it to get other stuff in it he wants.

That is all.

I forget and it might have changed, but does anyone know about how many they are going to get if approved?

around 100,000. Wonder if the CMP will segregate them into manufacturer and condition- Remington Rand beaters will be cheap and Unions Switch or Singers will be a couple thousand? We'll just have to wait til it clears obama's desk.

What's happened with all the M1 Garand's that were coming back from Korea?

The Korean rifles are a can of worms that will probably never be sorted out to anyone's satisfaction. The Koreans both purchased rifles and received aid rifles under MAP...and, of course, no records were kept as to which were which. Fast forward to the 80s, the Koreans sold rifles claiming they were the ones they had paid for...and after they shipped, the paperwork was determined to have been faked.

Now, they're claiming that the rifles they still have are the ones they purchased, and the ones from the 80s were the aid rifles. The US Army, OTOH, contends that the rifles are MAP aid, that should be returned to the US (and on to the CMP) instead of sold, and the Army's policy is that they don't pay for the return of their obsolete property.

NOBAMA's comments on the VETO of the NDAA of 2015

OK, so now what?

He's going to have to sign something soon...hopefully it will include the CMP getting 1911A1's to sell and generate some monies for the Government which will be used to train the Youth of this Country in the use of Small Arms.

I think many of us know that 120 rounds of 5.56 mm during Basic, and roughly 100 rounds of handgun training in AIT alone just does not cut it.

Singers depending on condition 35 to 50 thousand each they only made about 500 of them.And klintoon had most sent to captian crunch at Anniston. FUGGIN POS.

Ever since the White House press release of August 2013 NO US Surplus material is importable.

This means that the Form 6's for ANY US surplus parts, pistols, rifles, etc. will not be approved.

http://www.fairtradegroup.org/recent-actions.htm


Just to provide some background on the South Korean M1 rifle import, the US State Department actually helped with the selection of US importer's, and the US Congress passed an act to make the import of the rifles possible. The goal was to provide funding to the South Korean military thru this sale to be used to purchase modern small arms. Now the US State Department will be seeking US Taxpayer dollars to provide the "Aid" to the South Korean military for this purchase.
The sale happened, all the guns were purchased but now all that is definitely off, and I wonder what will eventually happen to that material.

Also, I want to point out that the import of ALL US manufactured surplus was stopped by a "press release/Executive Action" by the White House. Executive Actions are NOT "Executive Orders".
Read it here:
http://www.fairtradegroup.org/WH%20Fact%20Sheet%20on%20Executive%20Actions%20to% 20Reduce%20Gun%20Violence.pdf

There has been nothing written or guidance given by either the ATF or the US State Department because of the above guidance from the White House. There is nothing for us to challenge in court!
Importers cannot get Form 6's approved for ANY US surplus goods since that statement was posted on the White house web site.
This requires pressure on Congress to put things right.

Did something right, WEG? There's always a catch.

Maybe import them without barrels like FAL kits????

No need to "import" most are stored state side and the army does not "import" when transferring between army facilities

I might buy one if they sell them for 500-600. Most will likely be mix masters.

I already have a WWII Colt with a later replacement Colt Hard Slide and 80s era barrel. It shoots suprisingly well.

My guess is they'll do three grades :$600, $750 and $850. With a possible fourth grade for special/matching finds and auction the excellent collector picks.

It'll take at least a year to 18 months to obtain, inspect and sort for sale. They sell Garands $250-$350 below market. Shooter grade GI 1911 brings anywhere from $700 to $1,000 depending on condition.
