I, too, am inclined to read it that way, especially since the CMP letter to me today was postmarked the 18th, arrived central NC on the 21st. Not sure how the mails move over the weekend, but with this single data point of a 3-day transit, there is some chance mine did not arrive until the 2nd.

Well it "kind of / sort of" implies your letter got there after the 1st.

I'm sure we'll be hearing more.

So they wrote your letter 2 days after the release deadline/sell out....then waited over a month to mail it???

I won't even to venture to guess about that....just seems really really odd now

My guess that it is a form letter written on that day, and being that there were more urgent, pressing matters to attend to, did not get to everyone's mail until just recently.

No, no ... a MONTH and 2 days. The form letter is dated MARCH 3rd.

Such as counting all of those dollar bills rolling in from the sale.

The sooner I get told I'm not receiving a CMP built Frankenstein carbine, the sooner I can buy some spam cans to feed the legitimate rifles.

I'll survive, I would have liked one but I have one already and can probably go through life with only it (except it jams all the time so kind of kills the fun factor). I bought two over rifles through this whole ordeal, one of them being an excellent example of a M1903A3 (which I actually wanted more than a Carbine) so I don't feel like it's much of a loss to lose out on this sale.

We'll see what happens I guess, but I've already moved on...emotionally, haha. 2/1 was my birthday so it would have been sweet to luck out.
