Default 1911 at your FFL, now what?

To those that have had their 1911s shipped, what happened next? Did your dealer have you fill out more forms or just hand it over?

The process per the cmp is to complete a 4473 and nics check at the dealers.

My understanding that at this point it would be just like you are purchasing any firearm from your FFL.
You will likely need to go through the NICS background check by your FFL....fill out more forms.
In Michigan with a CCW/CPL I don't need the background check but still need to fill out the paperwork. Your state may vary...FWIW

What happens next is completely dependent on what state you reside. At the minimum a completed Form 4473 is required. Once approved, some states allow the buyer to walk out of the shop with the pistol. Other states have waiting periods, but those can sometime be waived if the purchaser has a CCW. Beyond the 4473, there is no one size fits all for firearms purchases.

Here's a crazy idea: ask your FFL

.... except for a transfer to an 03 FFL, or one of the other FFL types that the CMP could not accept.

Thanks for the input. I’m in PA so a 4473 and a call to the PA instant check system by my FFL should do it. I was just wondering if there were any further requirements by the CMP upon delivery.

Same in Ohio. Just picked up my 1943 Colt A1 at my FFL. If CCW issued after 3/15 no background check needed but still had to fill out all the same paperwork. WWII firearm received on Pearl Harbor Day. Shoots incredibly well!

As per several previous posts, and from the CMP 1911 website:

3. The CMP customer will be required to complete a Form 4473 in person at the FFL dealerís place of business and successfully pass a NICS check, in which the information is provided by the FFL holder to NICS, before the pistol can be transferred. This is a second NICS check performed on the customer. Note: The FFL licensed dealer in which the pistol is retrieved from will have to follow all federal, state, and local laws.

As the "Note" indicates, some states have a waiting period and some states allow for a valid and current CCW to serve in lieu of a NICS check...check with your FFL and/or state.
