Sale Of Surplus 1911s Inches Closer To Reality

posted on July 18, 2017

The U.S. House of Representatives has approved H.R. 2810, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2018, which includes a provision to make surplus military 1911s available to the public through the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP).

Plans for the CMP release of 1911s stalled during the Obama administration, but this new bill includes language that would mandate the sale and remove a yearly cap of 10,000 guns currently in place. The historically significant firearms are currently being stored at taxpayer expense and would provide a significant source of government revenue—not to mention an exciting opportunity for gun collectors.

Use Your Power!

If you want to see vintage military 1911s available to the public, ask your U.S. Senators and Representative to preserve the House language in the final version of the NDAA. You may contact them by calling (202) 225-3121 or by clicking here.
