    Suggestion for the inbound current CMP pistols..

    I hope most of these "history" pistols fall into the hands of those that will appreciate them for what they are. I'm sure there's plenty that are just trying to buy them, sit on them (possibly dealers) a few years until the supply dries up and then put them on the shelf for a huge markup. There will always be buyers willing to pay top dollar because they "missed out" and feel pressured to buy when they can. I can't blame them I suppose but, I hope most go to people that have always wanted something similar without getting gouged too much.

    For all the ones that will fall into hands on this forum, I'd suggest a sticky thread just for them - one post each with pictures and a short "bio" about their pistol. That would be a cool thread to scroll through, peruse, compare, contrast all in one area. Anything unusual could then be the topic for individual threads...just a suggestion. Regardless, I'm looking forward to seeing what comes out of these hidden stores.

    It will be more than a few years before someone will make a huge profit on them. Rebuilt pistols were also sold during the NRA/DCM sales of some 60 years ago, and the demand is still for the original pistols. At that time few people kept the pistol just as it was received along with the shipping containers and documentation and these will bring a premium over one without.

    There will still be those that want to start swapping parts to make them "more correct".

    Lot of excitement over these pistols. I
    really feel the CMP is making all of the money possible on these rebuilds under this lottery system. Not to mention the auctions for the better examples they're holding back.
    While some seem decent they are rebuilt, not original and I'm not seeing a shortage of original 1911 military examples at the larger shows and many are reasonably priced. Plus you're not jumping through all of the hoops to buy one.
    You just need to do some homework.
    Am I missing something?

    I think a lot depends on the pistol you get. I got a matching 43 Colt that appears to be in very good shape while others have received mix-masters of various conditions.

    Also, I know that the 1911A1 has not been touched by bubba. Any changes were done by the military which means a lot to some of us, not so much to others.

    Price wise, my service grade was 1050.00. I haven’t seen a matching and untouched 1911A1 at that price for many years.

    One other thing. As an active duty service member myself it was worth the extra paperwork to get a chance to own a piece of US Military history. Who knows, maybe my grandfather carried this Colt in the Pacific.
