Default 1911 purchase eligibility requirements

Will there still be a blanket eligibility standard like retired law enforcement credentials for the 1911s?

Default Marsmanship activity - age requirement

I've tried to avoid starting yet ANOTHER thread on the CMP 1911s but can't seem to get a definite answer -- to0 buy most CMP firearms, those of us 60 and older are excused from having to complete a "marksmanship activity". Does anyone "authoritative" know if this will be the case for purchase of a CMP M1911 or not?

Obviously, I'd like to know ahead of time in case I do need to complete an activity.

If I were you, I would shoot an e mail to customer service. They can answer it at their leisure and you will not be tying up their telephones.

You should have your answer in plenty of time before the future mail in date.

Yep, a big believer in email vs. the phone. I tried to work it "outside the system" and didn't really get a straight answer. Don't envy the folk at CMP, having to answer all the questions about M1911 sales right now!!

Picky, picky, picky ... LOL!!

Seriously, I did (sort of) get my question answered - I do have a C&R and the CMP CEO said that a C&R can replace evidence of shooting activity.

As proof of participation in a marksmanship activity? Without further details, I would hazard a YES.

I am wondering about the notarized 2A form - can the date of the notarized stamp be earlier than the announcement "to the world" if it is recent (i.e. in 2018) to the announcement? I understand I can't send the paperwork and order in earlier than the announcement, but does a wet notary stamp require a date on (or after) the announcement?

They're producing a new form, so you can't do this one before they release the form anyway.

Thanks for getting this question up on the forum. Maybe an answer can be posted without a bunch of us swamping the CMP folks with repetitive questions.

Standing by.
