You dont believe in CMP rebuilds? Because that's kinda of a thing.

"No one knew newer slides would be in this mix" of pistols rebuilt and stored since the '80's?

I think one or two knew.
Just what parts would be placed on pistols rebuilt in the last 40 years?

Read the posts and you'll see where that original opinion came from.
If you fail to see my combination of facetiousness+sarcasm+humor, it is time to shut this thread down and tuck us in for the night.

You're right. I'm sure a few assumed it but I honestly forgot those slides even existed. The last time I tried to get rid of one was about a year ago. Picked up two in a estate and didn't need them. I had the hardest time getting rid of them which is why I'm worried about getting one now. But... I did look on ebay and apparently if you state that it's a Colt NM made slide you get around $150-$250 for it... No lie... Go look... There is at least one other replacement slide, maybe two with a smaller number on the right side of it. Not sure what they would sell for but probably same scenario. Even if it was Vietnam era that would be cool but still think it devalues the gun. As for these pistols having one, it never crossed my mind. Doesn't say anywhere when these were rebuilt and stored. Could have been the 50s. Might have been yesterday. The few coming out show late 70s, early 80s stamps but that may not be the case with the next batch. Now I'm just waiting to see what "commercial parts" are out there.

Feel free to do so if you feel that strongly that there's a chance you'll get a substandard pistol.
I would be more than happy to take your place in line and grab a second.

"So, just my opinion since I don't have any insights into the CMP "inspect and repair" program, but these are more likely the result of a fresh CMP rebuild program than a depot one."


Let me see if I am reading this correct. You believe that CMP went through all of those crates pictured in different articles and reworked already rearsenaled pistols?
