The inconic M1911/A1  is an iconic pistol that for decades served as the standard side arm for America’s troops.  The Civilian CMP M1911 Pistol Auction Follow Me on Pinterest Marksmanship Program  (“CMP”) is a a government chartered organization that provides gun safety and marksmanship lessons for US Citizens.  Also, the CMP has been in charge of receiving and auctioning off, military surplus, M1911 pistols.    The CMP will be again auctioning off M1911 pistols again this year.  However, fewer pistols will be available  to the public.

“While the National Defense Authorization Act granted transfer of a maximum of 10,000 1911s per year to the CMP, the Secretary of the Army allowed only 8,000 1911s to be transferred to the CMP for sale and distribution this fiscal year,” said Chief Operating Officer Mark Johnson in a press release.
