Unless the pistols were already packaged with magazines, why should the CMP supply any?

They did not with Carbines - sold separately by the CMP or you could buy USGI /commercial outside.

They did not with Mossbergs and other magazine fed 22s - sold separately by the CMP or you could buy USGI /commercial outside.

Why would M1911/M1911A1 release be any different? It all depends on how benevolent the CMP management wants to be. It isn't like the magazines are hard to find!

The CMP sold USGI M1911/M1911A1 for several years - they stopped selling them sometime this year. That may have been because they sold out; or because they decided to keep them in reserve to sell in conjunction with the M1911/M1911A1 sales. They were initially $8; last price this year was $8.40. Purchase limit was 10 per year.
