Dear John roundup.
 
Hardly any movement this week. Any bets on when the mass notification goes out?

Friday night... After closing...

I bet they're just building more up.

There was a carbine sale....I must have forgotten in my old age.

I'm betting this is what's going on as well. They're probably doing them in batches to try to get M1 Garands out the door since there's now a large backlog of them.

I received mine in today's mail. A nice "To Whom It May Concern" letter advising I did not make the cut for the carbines, and it included my (voided) check.

Gotta think a lot of other hopefuls will receive theirs today or tomorrow.

So now it's time to wonder when the 1911s will be coming along ... :)

....that's kind of odd that they took the time, and manpower, to mail a letter back with a voided check and still haven't sent out a mass Dear John email. Seems kind of backwards.

Not clear. I opted for snail mail, sent on Fri 29 Jan from central NC, assuming that would get it there on time.

The entire text of the letter I received is as follows:

"To Whom It May Concern:

Your carbine order has been received; however, it did not make the cut. Due to the high volume of orders received February 1st, we sold out on that day. The information you provided with your order will be updated in your customer account. If you do not have a customer account, we will create one for you and update accordingly. Enclosed with this letter is the check you sent with your order. For security purposes, the check has been voided. Should you have any questions, concerns, or comments, do not hesitate to contact us at (256) 835-8455.

Thank you for your continued support of the CMP!

Sincerely,
CMP Staff"

Oddly this form letter bears a date of March 3, 2016, yet the envelope carries a Birmingham AL postmark dated 18 Apr 2016.

This may be the notification process for those who chose to pay via check; shouldn't be a need for a letter in credit card situations, as that could be done via email.

I'm pretty sure that means you order arrived after the sold out notice on 1 Feb. A key indicator is "we sold out on that day," which implies that yours wasn't there before the cut off.
