Last year the firearm community was buzzing about the release of over 100K 1911s to the Civilian Marksmanship Program to sell them to the public. Then earlier this year John McCain introduced a bill which contained text which would required those firearms to be melted down. As the bill evolved that verbiage was eliminated, but now I wondering when the CMP will actually receive and start to distribute the surplus 1911s. The chances of snagging one will be pretty slim as collectors in droves will order the second they become available, but there has been no information on the 1911s since a few inquiries happened in June. If anyone has any new info on the 1911s, please pass it along.
