    Still more than I'm willing to pay. Can get a nice .45 for those prices.

    You would think that with them flooding the market with 1911s they would lower the price, especially on the field and rack grade pistols since they have condition issues, but I guess everyone's gotta make a buck.

    This is what happens when Uncle Sam turns his sells over to a private company. DCM (government) use to sell guns and ammo CHEAP.

    I'm not interested at those prices. I have enough good quality 1911s, and the CMP has had 'way enough of my time and money over the years. I'm sitting this one out.
     
  8. Sorry, I'm not that nostalgic or that stupid with my money! I'll pass.

  10. Looking doesn't cost anything, unless you're an FFL too.

    Good luck.

    No 1911s at the stores. mail order only. 8000 this year ain't exactly flooding the market. I wager they will be oversubscribed by triple that...at least.

    I make a prediction: A lot of gullible people will gladly be parted from their money in the belief they have an heirloom gen u wine collector's item real deal military WW2 / Korea era M1911A1. Then maybe shoot them, maybe not. Find they aren't exactly match grade. Maybe get in a bind and try to sell them. Find no one will be willing to pay what CMP charged for the original purchase. Much cursing and gnashing of teeth.

    I haven't seen s USGI 1911 in any condition for under a grand. Maybe I'm shopping in the wrong places.

    Only 1911 I would pay that much for is the one my father used to have after he got out of the service

    The 4 years I was in the Marines I never saw one I'd happily pay half that much for.

    @HerrZnk, @Jarhead that's exactly what I'm thinking my strategy will be, I will give it a while, I bet they will start popping up for sale.

    And as I wrote, you & Jarhead will be correct (as will I). They've created a "buzz", everyone will be excited to get these, and I think they won't be all that. Could be wrong, wouldn't be the first time.

    As with other CMP releases, some buyers will be happy and some won't.
