Default Now get this....

A friend of mine and I received our pistols the same day. Mine is a 1944 AAD rebuild and his is a 1945 AAD rebuild. Both guns were pristine and the tones matched. No problems I could see but he didn't like his.

He wanted to resell his, for what he had in it ( $1050+$25), thru the FFL guy who did the final paper work for the transfer of the gun to him. Less 10% of course.

NOW HEAR THIS...................

The FFL guy refused saying " CMP and Gun Broker will smyth the FFL who resells a CMP 1911 pistol ".

Any input?

The CMP has stated that the person that they catch selling a CMP M1911 on Gun Broker or elsewhere will be barred from purchasing from the CMP. The goal of the CMP was to get these pistols into the hands of shooters/collectors, not to help someone make some quick cash. The CMP has stated that the only option for someone who is not happy with their CMP 1911 is to return it to the CMP and they will issue a refund. There was a notation on the 1911 CMP page to this effect that has been removed.

What does "smyth" mean?

I believe he meant smite, which is to hit, strike, beat according to the dictionary.

Just curious what didn't he like about it? Did he not read the description?

'Smythe' was an attempt at the old English word for smite which is used by contemporary individuals. Sorry for my Liberal Arts background.

New owner had problems with it from the get go; from finish, small inconsequential scratches, to the plastic grips. Finally settled on the sights being inadequate for his requirements. Read the LARGE print?

Gun is being sent back to the CMP for a full refund.

This gun probably will be turned to another CMP customer in a day or two.

Good to know about the CMP return stipulation though. However, why was it removed from the posting (listing). That was not explained by the Maj.

Any way some other CMP customer got lucky.

The more of these "yahoos" that return them because of nit-picky stuff just means I get one number closer to acquiring one. So more power to 'em.

Even "Smite" is outdated Bible-speak - never even heard of "Smythe"

All these “yahoos “ need to realize that these pistols are used, abused(sometimes) and never looked as good since their “born-on” date way back when!

If what you expect is an unaltered, unreworked, un-mixmastered gun, then go on Gunbroker. There are plenty of perfect ones. For $6G. And more.
