Hi, the bill which is an add on to a bigger defense bill is on the way to President Trump. When signed the Secretary of the Army will transfer 10,000 1911's over to the CMP. The bill specifies not more than 10,000 in 2018 and 2019 but not less than 8,000. This includes accessories and parts. These firearms include 1911's and 1911-1a's and are considered surplus. 10K sound like a lot but because of all the excitement stirred up by the on line boys I think these will be gone soon. They must be sent to an FFL. This may slow down this a bit. The rare stuff will go to the CMP Auction site. I expect prices to be high, regards, Mike

Excellent news!

Another example of how important the last election was.

I hope we won't see a lot of these get butchered by wannabe gunsmiths who choose to use them as base guns for a build. In most cases, these warhorses should probably stay "as is," I think.

Hi Ten Driver, I don't see anyone using them for projects. I call that taking a $1000 gun and turning into a $100 gun. They will be too expensive, regards, Mike

Considering the market availability of new guns and the scarcity of unmolested old ones, they would be foolish to take anything less than they can get for them. Several thousand legit USGI pistols hitting the market is an exciting prospect.
