  1. I’d love to have one, but given the probable condition and the rigamarole one has to go through … it’s just not worth it to me.

  2. I will laugh my ass off if I see anyone complaining about the condition on these. Unless they’ve found a mother-lode of unissued war stock, these pistols are gonna look like ass.

    I know that every single one I saw out in the units before we turned them in were in incredibly bad condition.

  3. This “2nd round” would be the second batch of 10,000 authorized for sale per year from the 100,000.

    “In late 2015, President Obama signed the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act, which included a provision authorizing the Army to transfer 100,000 surplus pistols to the Civilian Marksmanship Program as part of a one-year pilot program. The program was then given the green light to sell up to 10,000 of the guns per year.”

  4. Unless these come into the market at a very nice price, I honestly don’t see the point. There’s so much 1911 production in the market of good quality parts these days, why put out good money on one of these? They’ll likely be refurbed, the numbers won’t match, they won’t have much collector value, etc.

    This ain’t like the Garand situation, where no one is making a Garand currently, or 1903’s, where no one is making 1903’s. These are 1911’s, where there are literally a half-dozen outfits making good to excellent quality 1911 frames, slides and barrels, and another half-dozen making “good” quality parts.
