I'm a member of CMP and recently Obama signed the defense budget for next year. In the budget was a provision for the CMP to sell the Army's inventory of M1911 and M1911A1s. To start in 2016, the Army will give the CMP 10,000 pistols to sell as an experiment. Currently, CMP is working out the details and logistics. The total number of pistols to be sold are estimated between 100,000 and 875,000. The CMP requested that folks hold off asking for more details and indicated updates will be posted on their website. Stay tuned.
