Default Request insight on CMP ship speed

Hi All,

Just a quick question as i'm scratching my head over here. I got the call on 12/4 to take my order. I was told it would ship out same day and would arrive at my FFL on 12/5 as it is shipped fedex express overnight. Called my FFL on 12/5 and 12/6 they didnt receive it.

Got a ship notification friday at 4:30pm PST.

As of now my FFL still has not received it. I sent an email to the cmp on 12/5 asking if the item shipped and when it was expected to arrive but its possible they may be on holiday or not in office as I have yet to get a reply.

Just curious what the customary turn around is for this, and what others have experienced.

Thanks much!

I may not be the norm, but I got the call on the morning of 9/27, card was charged later that day, got home to an email that it shipped overnight delivery, and picked it up at my FFL on 9/28 on the way home from work.

Very surprised at the speed from "The Call" until holding it in my hand!

They do not actually ship on Fridays because they require that the FFL receives it next day. Your pistol likely didn't ship till today and should arrive tomorrow.

weird i thought to fedex saturday was a business day?

Thanks though, i sorta figured with the time of the email received etc it was likely it wouldnt go out that day...

It's quite possible they are more backed up than the customer service center realizes in the shipping dept as they process the new batch of pistols.

As shomway mentioned, CMP1911 does not ship on Fridays. Nothing to do with Fedex.

CMP1911 has stated from the start that they will not ship on Fridays or if a holiday will delay shipping and receiving at the FFL....their rules. They are paying for next day shipping and don't want pistols sitting at a hub/facility that can be taken. Call your FFL tomorrow and bet it will be there.

I received the call on the 2nd and the pistol shipped on the 5th. I won’t get to pick it up for a while though.

The pistols are not allowed to sit overnight and while some FFLs are open on Saturday, not all are. If there is no one available to accept the shipment, it gets sent back to the CMP. I believe/think this is an Army requirement. Not shipping on Fridays reduces the risk of non-delivery.
