  1. I, as well as many Americans are interested in owning a piece of American WWII history, and want to know if this story is true: The Civilian Marksmanship Program has been informed that the Philippine government may be shipping 86,000 M1 Garand rifles back to the US. These highly collectible rifles, most of which were produced prior to 1957, will be made available to the public through the CMP. If so, I want a chance to purchase one. What can you tell me about this?
    • We hope to receive more rifles from the Secretary of the Army. You may view a list of eligibility requirements on our website at
  2. I'm retired, a life long M1 collector, I have nothing else to do.....may I travel to what ever location will be handling the in coming 86,000 M1's and help? It won't cost you much.....o.k., o.k., .. I'll work for free.... o.k., o.k.,,, I'LL PAY YOU to help unload and clean the shipment !!!
    • Jim, When we had a large inventory of rifles to inspect, we did have a Sales Volunteer program which allowed volunteers to come to CMP and help with the rifles. We may start this program up again if/when the Secretary of the Army releases any new shipments to the CMP. Time will tell and we are hopefully. Thank you for your interest and I’m sure we’ll announce more information later this year or early 2018.
      • Christine, Where is the best place to go for this M1 updates. It may be best, if not already accomplished, to come with with a one page answer, and post it everywhere. In this answer direct all to XX place for monthly updates. Thanks
        • We don't have any new updates at this time. It may be early 2018 before we receive the rifles if they are approved to be transferred to the CMP. If you would like to sign up for our Sales Email Updates, please visit
    • Jim, very funny but true, I and many others would pay to help out with the mother load, the best part is just imaging all those great rifles,
  3. Hello to All, I have purchased from CMP before. I understand that the paperwork I have in to you is good for so long. How can I check up om what needs to be updated and when. Thanks
    • You may send an email to our Customer Service Department - [email protected] and they will be able to check your customer file and let you know what will be needed for ordering. Thank you!
  4. Hello, a long time customer, as long as you have been the CMP. ask Leon and Don and Mark. Don,leon and i were both Alabama shooters. anyway wanted to ask mark some questions or who ever i need to talk to about my military armorer skills on the 1911 45 pistol and the work that may need to be done before they can be sold. Thanks.
  5. I just saw the release on the 1911 pistol prices. My opinion is the prices are too high. 850 bucks for a rusted pitted 1911 is usurious. The current used market is not at that price point. But you have a monopoly so I guess it's gouge the civilians time..
    • CMP has priced the 1911 type pistols at fair market value in accordance with CMP's enabling legislation.
