Does anyone know if the CMP 1911 sales that were to start October 2018 are still going on?

Only thing I’m sure of is they’ve received more packets than firearms available for this year. So unless you sent in a packet your out of luck for now.

Do you know if they send out a notice or posting on their website stating when they are out of guns for this round of sales?
I sent an entry back in October of 2018 and haven't heard anything other than the statement on their website that states to not send in any more requests.

Very secretive process, you'd think, at the prices they are getting, they'd just "as is" every one of them they can get straight out the door.

Rather frustrating. Not just secretive but hundreds of hoops. Starting to think it’s not worth the hassle for a bit of history.

They are no longer taking orders... you can find all related information at this link from the CMP

CMP 1911 Information

I got my application in the very first day or to that they were acepting applications, and still haven't heard back from them due to some technical issues that they are having. If you read all the updates going back to January. They only accepted application packets between 4 September 2018 and NOT AFTER 4 October 2018.

Hope this explains, although it wont help if you wanted one of these initial releases. The higher end 1911's will go to their auction site later this year

They are really dragging it out. I still don't know if I'm on the list or not. We did all the work for them, all they gotta do is enter info since, for some reason, they gotta have 2 back ground checks. No incentive to be efficient.

A sad part of this story is that these are OUR guns. We paid for them on the first go around. The CMP didn't buy them, they just exist as middlemen, allowing us the privilege of buying them back. I don't know much about it, but my guess is that the CMP folks are well paid, kind of like Blue Sky of years gone by. They should have first offered them to veterans who risked their lives when they were in government hands. Then general public. Circus is probably an understatement.

My understanding of the situation is that the CMP is dealing with all the requirements imposed on them by the Feds re. these 1911 imports, which took years to happen in the first place.
