CMP: 99,000 Garands are back from overseas, update on 1911s

CMP: 99,000 Garands are back from overseas, update on 1911s

“We have roughly 86,000 rifles from the Philippines and roughly 13,000 rifles from Turkey in our possession,” said Johnson.


The Philippino guns have been on the radar for months while CMP has kept the news on the Turkish M1s closer to the vest. The influx of vintage rifles, which the organization is authorized to sell to the public by Congress to support firearms safety training and marksmanship efforts around the country, is one of the biggest stockpiles the group has received in recent years.


In an update posted by the CMP on Monday, the organization says they have received 8,000 1911 type pistols from the Army, which they are in the process of inventorying this week. Once that is complete, the group will have to securely store the WWII-era surplus handguns while an Army-approved “building and armory infrastructure is completed,” a process expected to take 60 days, at which point inspection and test firing can be tackled. Only then would the guns be up for sale, with CMP promising to post the order packets needed to buy the handguns “90 days prior to the order acceptance date and opening sales date.”
