Default How many 1911 order packets will the CMP receive?

The Secretary of the Army allowed only 8,000 1911s to be transferred to the CMP for sale and distribution this fiscal year. Some of those are anticipated to be unusual and worthy of being auctioned, so the actual number of mail order 1911s available will be less than 8000.

Nobody will know the total number of 1911 order packets received by the CMP until after October 4, when the computerized random number generator assigns everyone a sequential number for processing.

I'd be interested in your guess at the anticipated number of correctly filled out 1911 order packets the CMP will receive during the 9/4/18 to 10/4/18 period that will be entered into the computerized random number generator.

Does this include all that are mailed in regardless if filled out correctly or the number that will be entered into the random number generator?

Only the CMP will know how many orders were not filled out correctly, so please include only the number of orders entered into the random number generator in your estimate (guess).

Thanks!

The forum tends to grossly over estimate the interest in the CMP releases. But I think the combination of a month long window, the set place in line from the random number generator, and the uncertainty over the future releases will make this one much more in line with the hype.

Default 1911 sale

I have talked to a few friends, and they did no even know about the 1911 sale by the CMP, have also asked people if they know about the M1 Garands that the CMP sales they did not have a clue. So it may be fewer than you think...

From what I've seen posted around the inter-web, lot of guys think it takes a substantial amount of legwork & rig-a-ma-roll to qualify to purchase a CMP 1911.
Think that will keep many from pursuing one. I see less than 40,000 applications arriving during the lottery harvest month
