Default 1911 purchase eligibility requirements

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

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.

Exclamation

Ladies and gentlemen,
Merged 3 separate threads into this one as all 3 original questions pertained to eligibility requirements...

Harvey/Duke/Rick...and FYI/SA for everyone,
Working under the premise we are talking specifically about Marksmanship or Other Firearms Related Activity requirements only...
As per other posts from Mark (and notwithstanding the FFL requirement), as it stands now, potential purchasers will have to meet the same eligibility requirements that are currently in place, and found here...
http://thecmp.org/cmp_sales/rifle_sa...-requirements/

In all 3 of your examples (and for duke, both of your creds would work), you would meet these requirements, assuming you have proof of such.
And as you stated Rick, your C&R would also fulfill that requirement.

Remember that you still must meet the separate requirement for Membership in a CMP-Affiliated Organization, for which there is no age waiver.

The key milestone here is when the new order form will be made available, which will be before the 1911s become available for purchase.
Once you can print the new order form, you can have it notarized beforehand and the notary will be good for 3 years (assuming your address doesn't change).
Then wait for the hallowed announcement date.
If the 1911s aren't ready for ordering w/in those 3 years...well, there are obviously bigger problems folks here can and will ponder, parse and pontificate.

No Ill intended here guys but sending in my birth certificate again and the affiliated group membership again and proof or marksmanship activity again then two nics checks is just too much red tape for me. Does anyone see how ludicrous this is not to mention unconstitutional? I wouldn't be surprised if they required a nics check every 6 months after you owned the 1911.
I'm really sorry guys but as much as I like WWI & WWII history and firearms count me out on this one.
If my reply here is out of line go ahead and delete it. No offense will be taken.
Sadly I just wanted to express my feelings on this issue.

Well HOPEFULLY, the announcement will precede the "first order date" by at least a couple weeks, so everyone has a chance to get their ducks all lined up. I'm thinking that the CMP leadership will do exactly that.

Don't make this harder on yourselves. You're all still reading too much into everything.

I've never seen an announcement made say on the 10th stating that orders will be accepted starting on the 11th.

Mike, I think folks are worrying too much - but there wasn't much time in-between the announcement of that batch of 1500 carbines was there - I simply can't remember

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.
