Congrats DRA. Just out of curiosity, are you hoping for any particular manufacturer?

I'm really curious what the rack grades are going to look like.

Thanks, Toro1. Not married to one particular manufacturer -- just thrilled to be getting one. I was pleased that all three grades were available when I got the call -- and glad that I have a service grade heading my way.

Some of the finish looks like high heat barbecue paint out of a spray can.

Guess you cant tell the difference between paint and Parkerizing. The Parkerizing is very dry, rub in grease or oil and wipe off and it will darken.

Ok, a bit of an exaggeration but serous question: When the war was in full swing and we needed 1911’s like yesterday, did they look that rough?

I don't see any that "look rough" ? These are implements of war, 1911's that went through a rebuild and refinished and put in storage for later use. No different than garands. If you want a pristine 1911 you need to buy commercial.

I'll take one!
My number is 12***.
I am hoping they get more than the initial 8000.

I have a small collections of CMP rifles and would love to add a 1911.
So far I have an M1 Garand, 1903 Springfield, and an M1 Carbine.

Well finally got an email asking for me to call CPM 1911 on Wednesday, my number was 5150 (not a good number if you live in California, “W&I 5150” is a 72hrs mental health hold ). Called and paid for “service grade”. Got email the next day saying it was shipped. Now have to wait “10 days” to be able to pick it up.

My application was received right when they opened for business the first day. But unfortunately I wound up in the 15,000+ range.

Just put my CMP 1911 in jail. 1943, very pleased with it. Remington Rand slide & frame. ANAD (Anniston Army Depot), FJA - Frank J. Atwood inspector.

Here are some gun store pics. The pistol was shipped bone dry. Good lock up. Nice trigger. Will post better pics after I pick it up.

Order thread on CMP forum indicates RGN 6008 and 6019 were notified today and offered all three grades. I'm RGN 62xx and wouldn't be surprised if I get "the call" next week......at least I'm hoping.

Nice looking 1911 DRA. You did very well getting a Remington Rand Frame and slide.

Gundog, hope your call comes soon

Nice looking Pre-A1. Looks like Pre-A1 slide too? Serial comes back to 1918. Can’t wait to see more pics! Congrats!

Got the call today from CMP. Actually it was a voicemail that came in while I was taking a nap this afternoon. When I called CMP back, they were just closing up shop and asked me to call back Monday morning. I also got an email from them. This is going to be one l-o-n-g weekend. My RGN is 62XX. You can bet I'll be on the phone bright and early Monday morning with payment information.

Very nice! I never saw a 1911 frame and slide on the same pistol my entire service career. I wonder is a caring tech mated them up during the rebuild process for posterity.

I also wonder how they came together. They also look the same shade and patina, so maybe they have been together for a while? What are the odds the slide is original match to the frame I wonder....

Looks good! Not sure if they serialized slides way back in 1918, but look behind the firing pin retainer plate and see what is there
