Default CMP 1911s

Anyone know what number they are up to on the lottery? I sent my application in on the first day it opened up and got number 16,992 (kind of the same luck I have buying lottery tickets). Last I saw a few months ago they were up around 13,000.

A guy on the CMP facebook page just got his service grade. He was 13005.

They shut down all operations for a while thanks to the bug. Looks like they are back at it now.

Reading the tea leaves at the CMP forum leads me to believe the second batch was also 8,000 guns. I think the RNGs started at 1000 so between that and the folks that have passed when they got the call I bet you’ll get one.

All I know about the CMP 1911s is that it appears every one of them immediately gets listed on Gunbroker.

Still have mine. All that trouble wasn't worth making a quick $100-$200.

I should have bought those Colt USMC 1911s if I'd wanted to do that.

Teach me: I took a look at their sight and, though not comprehensively, I couldn't really determine what made these so special.....

Yep, and that was not the intent of the program.

Compared to today's wonder pistols, the M1911 and M1911-A1 pistols do appear to be lacking. But, I find the small sights to allow for better precision shooting. The caliber is not, in my opinion, a detriment as the 45 ACP is a long proven handgun caliber. Are they as tight as a bullseye match pistol? No, they rattle when shaken, but they also tend to continue functioning when crudded up with a half a pound of GSR, dirt, and mud. The trigger is a dedicated single action, so no transition from DA to SA and no long, mushy, crunchy, no idea exactly when it will release the striker trigger pull. These are very functional and well tested handguns.

Plus maybe it (or some parts of it) was carried on Guadalcanal or Normandy.
