Default Beretta M9s

When do the Beretta M9s, or their associated magazines, become available to the public?

well, let's see, it took over 30 years from the time the 1911 was phased out the time they were available. So....

My best guess is never. I would think that our government would provide them to friendly foreign governments rather than make them available to the CMP. Don't hold your breath.
Also, most of the M9's that I was issued were beat to crap, those non steel frames didn't hold up well to the use/abuse of soldiers at war.

I love the M9s but I just can't think that govt issued M9s will be in any kind of shape I would want. Saying that, I would still seriously consider buying one if price was below current new M9 prices.

I bought a commercial M9, (marked M9 as a commemorative and not FS92) in 2010 when I got back from the 'stan. It was used, but you couldn't tell, and came with both mags, the case and manual. The only two differences from it and the Govt issue was the recoil spring plunger was polymer as was the trigger in mine. I changed the plunger to a metal one but have not bothered to change out the trigger.



It's very smooth and the slide lock releases nearly effortlessly. This is in stark contrast to the SA Ranger Officer compact that I recently got which is still as a board.



That said it is still bulky compared the the M1911A1. Sure you get 15 rds but it's actually larger than the M1911A1.

I bought the special edition one, several years earlier

yeah, a whole bunch of people of various gun boards said the same thing about the M1911s when CMP announced they would be selling those to the public.........."those things will be beat to hell and be just rusted up pieces of junk" etc...

after some folks posted a picture of theirs on the same gun boards, everybody was like, "oh man that's nice...wish I jumped in on those when I had the chance."

Although the predecessor of the CMP (DCM) did transfer many handguns the CMP was not allowed to perform this task until the 2018 NDAA allowed a very narrow exception. This exception does not include any other handguns.
36 U.S. Code  40728
“(h)Authorized Transfers.—
(1)Subject to paragraph (2), the Secretary may transfer to the corporation, in accordance with the procedure prescribed in this subchapter, surplus caliber .45 M1911/M1911A1 pistols and spare parts and related accessories for those pistols that, on the date of the enactment of this subsection, are under the control of the Secretary and are surplus to the requirements of the Department of the Army, and such material as may be recovered by the Secretary pursuant to section 40728A(a) of this title. The Secretary shall determine a reasonable schedule for the transfer of such surplus pistols.
(2)The Secretary may not transfer more than 10,000 surplus caliber .45 M1911/M1911A1 pistols to the corporation during any year and may only transfer such pistols as long as pistols described in paragraph (1) remain available for transfer.”
36 U.S. Code  40732
“(b)Gun Club Members.—
(1)The corporation may sell, at fair market value, surplus caliber .22 rimfire rifles, caliber .30 surplus rifles, and caliber .45 M1911/M1911A1 surplus pistols, ammunition, repair parts and other supplies necessary for target practice to a citizen of the United States who is legally of age and who is a member of a gun club affiliated with the corporation.”

There are some real M11 pistols out there in civilian hands. (And i am not talking about the pretender m11a1 ether)

Sig made too many pistols on the last Air Force contract, about 50 too many. So they simply stamped a B behind the m11 and sold them to the public
