The reason the ready supply is exceeded by immediate demand is that there is a very very good firearms salesperson at work right now. One like we have never seen before.

Part of all this confusion is other quotes like this:

http://forums.thecmp.org/showthread.php?t=173928&page=7

That is Mark Johnson making those comments. 2017 is not 5-6yrs away.
So either way, the CMP supply is coming to an end.

As far as the "you live close to a store" or the "north store vs south store" or the "an agent bought it" or "you volunteered" arguments: They all have been beaten to death and back. Call it whining or a legitimate argument, it's been hashed out long ago.

I tend to believe Mr Johnson, the end is close, as a year is not far off.

PS:

There were M1's available during the "Once a life time" DCM sales, just like the run of "Blue Sky" M1's and so the M1's will remain readily available for many yrs to come. The Krags and M1903's haven't been made for a 100yrs now and there is still good reasonably priced market for them. No reason to think the M1's would be different.

So I'm not going to loose my mind over this............... but YMMV

I have a friend that manages a local gun shop. He sings the praise of that salesperson quite regularly. The day after the salesperson to which you refer was...hired, his shop did $76K in a single day of sales. Three times the previous sales record for his establishment.

That makes sense. At 200 guns a week for 52 weeks, that's 10,400 Garands per year. 5-6 years at that rate is between 52,000 and 62,400 remaining.

"He told me if they don't get any more guns they'll still have enough to last another five or six years."

Regarding the accuracy of information received by me personally over the past two years, Mark's track record has been right on the money, "He" is batting 0.000.

Read this quickly, the moderators will probably delete this post and take me to task over it.

What would be the rationale for exaggerating / advancing the end date?

5-6 years because it will take that long to sell all of those M1C & M1Ds at $2,000-3,000 each! The M1s will be gone by next year. (just talking out of my butt, no inside info here).

I'm not sure why someone would play games over the numbers left.

They have an idea of how many they sell monthly, which generally a steady amount. They HAVE been cautious about when/how they get more. But they have been clear so far, no more are readily available. Which I ASSUME is where Mr. Johnson got his time frame from.

Once the standard M1's sell out, there will be a rush on the C's and D's. Look at the panic buying of the Carbines.........

BTW the same feast/famine will occur if the 1911's start selling..............
