The most current info I know from the CMP concerning the M1911's, was offered by Mark Johnson about a month ago in Vermont at the New England Games, he said, "There is no new info on when the CMP will receive the 1911's". He also said that the CMP is going ahead with obtaining it's FFL so that when the pistols are released, they're ready to roll. I thought that was encouraging to hear.

As they will be a full fledged FFL for those it would be nice if they could offer a branded 1911 .22LR model for teaching students. Something like a Kimber 1911ARF not a cheap blowback model like the Chiappa. Or maybe Kimber's conversion uppers.


PS: The little Kimber has as big of a bark as one in .45ACP while having little recoil so is good for teaching about flinching.

It is true, but changing by the year. Might even change in January again.

Agreed and sums it up pretty well.

Doug,
Understand your curiosity given this came from a CMP-affiliated club. In short, that is very old info covered last year.
With changes already looming for the subsequent year NDAA, as well as the events of this year and the sensitivity of this topic, even the current NDAA and 1911 program is in question.

As the good 1ST SGT mentions above, highly recommend you contact the club about sending outdated info.


And defintely much gnashing of teeth/hash from your post, NONE of which was needed and could've been used to answer your post in far fewer words and emotions.
So, if folks can't directly answer a question, stay out of the thread

We left this one thread up to give folks an outlet for 1911-related discussion/concerns, with the understanding info will be limited and no political water cooler type talk. But it's about run its course given many redundant posts, politics and exchanges such as this.

ETA: Going to lock it down pending review for relevancy.

Default I'm sure everyone saw this?

Movement on the 1911 possibility?

We are waiting patiently and quietly to see how the NDAA 2018 turns out. All prescribed steps have been taken by CMP to fulfill the mandated requirements for receipt of the 1911s from the United States Army. CMP is in a constant state of readiness...
