I got this Today...."CMP 1911 Information
To all CMP constituents:
The CMP Board of Directors has discussed at length how the sales of 1911s would be handled, if the CMP were to ever receive them from the United States Army.
Some preliminary decisions:
1.Decisions concerning the grade and pricing of the 1911s will not be made until inspection has occurred of a substantial quantity which will take an estimated 150 days post receipt. 2.All laws pertaining to the sale of 1911s by CMP will be strictly obeyed. 3.Potential purchasers will have to provide to CMP a new set of documents exhibiting: 1) proof of U.S. Citizenship, 2) proof of membership in a CMP affiliated club, 3) proof of participation in a marksmanship activity, 4) a new form 2A with notary, 5) successful completion of a NICS background check, 6) a signed copy of the 01 Federal Firearms License in which the 1911 will be transferred to. 4.The CMP customer will be required to complete a form 4473 in person and successfully complete another NICS check by the recipient FFL holder before the pistol can be transferred. 5.Qualified CMP customer will only be allowed to purchase one 1911 per calendar year. 6.No 1911s available in the CMP stores, or on line, only mail order sales. 7.CMP will set the date in which it will accept orders for the 1911s. The date will be posted to the world. 8.Orders will only be accepted via mail order delivery. 9.Orders will only be accepted post marked on the date or after, no early orders. 10.Once CMP receives 10,000 orders, customer names will be loaded into the Random Number Generator. 11.The Random Number Generator will provide a list of names in sequence order through a random picking process to CMP. 12.Customers will be contacted in the sequence provided by the Random Number Generator. 13.When the customer is contacted a list of 1911 grades and pricing options that are available will be offered for selection of one. 14.As CMP proceeds down the sequenced list less grade and pricing options will be available. Again, this done completely random.
We will have an all new order form, a 1911 page on our web site, a dedicated fax number and email address for the FFL holder to send there FFL with customer name attached. The customer will have to send in a complete new order packet with all new qualifying criteria included. Everyone will be a new customer, everyone starts with no advantage or disadvantage. CMP 1911 is a separate entity from CMP and has to have its own record keeping operation with no ties to CMP. All of this makes the audit trail clear and easy for Congress to look at concerning sells of the 1911."
