It was a joke.

My brother received his today as well at 8:36 this morning. He sent me the letter from CMP on 1/28 indicating there were going to be a limited number of carbines for sale. So I finally got off my rear and mailed my information off. Both his and my order landed shortly after 11 on 2/1 per USPS. I was one of the lucky ones to get a FG Quality Hardware and he got the Dear John letter. Felt bad for minute after he forwarded the email to me. But got over it pretty quickly.

I lucked out last weekend at a gunshow and bought a NPM 1.5 serial # from an individual for 700. I had to get it. Wish I could've gotten a CMP carbine. The NPM was very nice.

Got my notification yesterday. My order for a service grade was received at 1132hrs on 1 Feb 2016 for what is worth. Oh well, I will buy something else or wait until the next time CMP offers carbines.

Anyone else have an order recieved on 2/1 that didn't get the Dear John?
Order received on 2/1 at 0957 via Priority Mail. Nothing yet, but I know the official rejection is coming. Of course with my luck, it's probably hiding between a desk and a wall somewhere.

On a positive note: I did get a grade B receiver barreled and head spaced through the custom shop last month. Sent it in on a Friday and received it back the next Friday, so that was a nice change of pace.

Got my dear John letter in the mail today complete with my hand-voided check.
I've got a spot on the mantle already picked out.
Hand cancelled....in ink pen!

I am in line for the custom shop with an import carbine also. Maybe we need our own thread to see what the final results look like.
