I am just another poster, but I will try to answer your questions.

Q1: Anyone know anything or heard any rumors about when/if Round 3 will take place?

A1: There is no information for a Round 3 yet. There are at least 15,310 random numbers for Round 2. Round 1 had around 19,000 random numbers. It took from Nov. 2018 until Feb. 2021 (27 months) to fill Round 1 orders. Round 2 could be filled in a quick as 15 months based on the current rate. However; it could be maybe as long as 20 months (or longer) based on amount of pistols sent to CMP.

Q2: How many more pistols will be coming?

A2: Unknown. In 2015, President Obama signed the FY16 spending bill into law, which authorized the Army to send up to 10,000 of their surplus pistols.

It was not until FY 2018 the first 8,000 were actually sent. The Government Accounting Office report dated June 20, 2019 states,

"Based on the assumption that the Army would ultimately transfer to CMP all 98,016 surplus M1911 handguns ..."

There is no guarantee the 98,016 surplus pistols will be transferred. However: if they are all transferred, the earliest this could be done (if the maximum 10,000 per FY are sent) is FY 2027

Q3: Same hoops to just through?

A3: Yes. I see no reason the CMP will change. However: there may be additional "hoops" if new laws are past.
