    Any gun show will have GI issue 1911s along with any auction site.

    But as for a direct govt purchase it isn't happening. The ones CMP get are either sent back, kept, museums, etc etc. But aren't sold privately.

    I guess ill have to wait for the next gun show in town to pick one up then. I didnt know if certain individuals would buy bulk from the govt then resell them like they do other govt surplus.

    Not in recent years. People when exiting the service could purchase weapons etc and I believe the govt even offered sales at one time. But that was all years ago.

    Nowadays the only thing the govt offers weapon wise are M1903, M1917, and M-1s through CMP.

    I was wanting to get a 1903 someday. And I know I couldve gotten a better deal on there than anywhere else :wtc:

    Well unless someone starts reproducing them. They haven't been made since the 40s. And have been sold since what the late 1950s or early 60s?

    I have a feeling that whaever CMP had is what was left.

    My chrome P-64 is one of the ones sold by classic arms. I bought it second hand, but it's very well done.
