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
