Next release from the army
 
Has there been any news of when the Army might do the next release for more 1911s?

You guys are talking like they are done handing out numbers, say it aint so.

They are not even close. Remain calm. Even if another shipment showed up the process will not move any faster.

Fogtripper 11-26-2018 11:48 PM

Seriously guys?
All the OP asked was what the status of the next shipment might be if known. It is a perfectly reasonable question seeing as 2018 is nearing it’s end.

Remember the mods remarking about chaff? I think piling on posters who dare to ask CMP1911 questions counts as unproductive chaff and purse swinging.

We have not received any word when or if we will receive any additional pistols.

Thanks for the update.

I believe the NDAA for 2019 will specify a new release (or not). Is anyone familiar with NDAA status?

2019 NDAA is already enrolled, P.L 115-232. No mention of CMP.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but didn't the 2018 NDAA authorize a 2 year "shall transfer" pilot program that was for 8k to 10k per year, each year. Wouldn't that pilot program be independent of future legislation and only would need it if it was to be extended beyond the minimum of 16k pistols? I'm still hopeful for this round, but with falloff, bad applications, auction buyers etc., that amount would cover the majority of applicants, which would be cool, even taking into consideration auction and unsellable pistols.

.—M–1 Garand, caliber .45 M1911/M1911A1 pistols, caliber .22 rimfire rifles, and such addi-
tional items as designated by the Secretary in the annual report required under subsection (d) are not subject to the transfer requirement under subsection (a).
(d) ANNUAL REPORT
.—Not later than 5 days after the budget
of the President for a fiscal year is submitted to Congress under
section 1105 of title 31, United States Code, the Secretary of the
Army, in coordination with the Director of the Defense Logistics
Agency, shall submit to the Committees on Armed Services of
H. R. 2810—84
the Senate and the House of Representatives a report specifying
additional excess firearms, related spare parts and components,

wise prohibited from commercial sale, or distribution, under Federal
law. The Secretary of the Army shall designate these items to

so designated.

NDAA 2019

SEC. 354. REPURPOSING AND REUSE OF SURPLUS ARMY FIREARMS.
Section 348(b) of the National Defense Authorization Act for
Fiscal Year 2018 (Public Law 115–91; 131 Stat. 1365) is amended
by inserting ‘‘shredded or’’ before ‘‘melted and repurposed’’.

I think we are waiting on the Secretary of the Army to act on the transfer. I am sure we will be alerted when CMP1911 hears the news! http://forums.thecmp.org/images/smilies/smile.gif

I agree! It looks promising.
If I am reading it correctly, it kind of sounds like they are talking about all M1 Garands and 1911/A1 pistols stored at Anniston being transferred.

Does that mean there will be several thousand all next year?
I could be wrong.

I have a hard time understanding legal type documents.
