Next batch?
I've been collecting from the C MP for over a decade. I've got all 4 makers of the M1, three carbines, 1903s, a 1917. I was too sick and poor when the 1911s were released and had to pass. I understood there would be later releases. Any idea when this might be?

The word is that once (if) all ~19,000 orders have been filled, they will open it up again.

I understood, perhaps mistakenly, that the army was going to release 10,000 a year and that the lottery was for the first batch. I was hoping to get on a later batch.I probably messed up. Maybe in a couple of years, then.

I am sorry but until the first 19,000 orders are completed, we will not reopen the process. At this time we don't know when this will be.

I believe you can go the Auction route still.

I had forgotten what I posted on this forum years ago:

"I don't need it. I can't afford it. But if I don't I'll regret it in the future. (The unofficial CMP motto). "

My honest excuse is that I was in the hospital and had other things on my mind (in this case, being able to walk again).
