Second round of order entries going to open up it looks like, no previous purchasers
They say the appeal is that these are coming directly from the US GOVERNMENT to the CMP to the individual. These are not imported or take home pistols. That’s the allure.
Yeah, I guess I'm not that nostalgic. Maybe if Audie Murphy rubbed his balls on it or something.They say the appeal is that these are coming directly from the US GOVERNMENT to the CMP to the individual. These are not imported or take home pistols. That’s the allure.
I've been quite surprised at some of the pistols some folks have gotten. Many look quite correct if not original , and some did not have rebuild stamps. I have an original Rem Rand , and didn't put my package in before , but after seeing what folks have been getting , I will this time.
Honestly that is what prevented me from getting in on it. I knew that it was going to be a total crapshoot regarding what you got. Some were really lucky and got a pistol like filson's that was an absolute bargain at the price. But I also saw where others got boat anchors, and it didn't seem to matter whether you paid for a service grade or rack grade. There are several comments from others where somebody received a mediocre service grade, while their buddy got a rack grade that was actually nicer. Whenever I roll the dice it never seems to come out well, so I prefer to stick with the existing market where I seek guns that I can actually see first before buying.I got one of the very first ones in the luck of the draw. I was offered a service grade take it or leave it. I took the chance and got an A marked rebuild RR with a Colt slide and mixed GI parts. It's and shooter and that's all. Some lucked out with some nice pistols. Would I put in again if allowed, nope...
