As some of you know last year the CMP announced that they were getting 1911's returned from the military and would offer for sale to the civilian market. The Department of the Army authorized a shipment of up to 10,000 pistols but it is believed 8,000 or so were received for sale.
Last year in September I sent in my packet to try to purchase one. Well, it has been a year and a month and today I got the call that my pistol will be shipped to me today.
I cannot wait to see what I will get; Colt, Ithaca, Remington Rand, US&S. Will it be a true 1911 or a 1911a1
