To place an order with the CMP Custom Shop, please call (256) 835-8455, ext. 513, 514 or 540. Orders can also be sent by email to [email protected]. All orders will be accepted according to the time stamp they were received.

Due to the expected high volume of work, the Shop will limit the number of Return Authorizations (RA: needed to receive repair/custom rifle work) issued each week to a maximum of 15. Any additional orders received after the first 15 will be placed on a single wait list. Each subsequent week, the next 15 customers on the wait list will be assigned their RA, shipping provisions and an estimated turn around time. Walk-ins will be accepted and placed on the wait list for customer convenience, but no RA or estimated turn around will be provided until a spot in line on the wait list comes up.

No rifles are to be shipped in before being issued an RA number. Any rifles submitted without proper authorization will be returned to the customer at their own expense.

Thank you for your support!

The CMP Custom Shop opened for business on October 1, 2013. The CMP Custom Shop provides a wide variety of repair, upgrade and custom services for a wide range of U.S. Military rifles, specifically those issued in early eras. Customers should expect the CMP Custom Shop to continue the CMP traditions we are known for: customer service, quality and reasonable turnaround for most work.

What type of Rifles will the CMP Custom Shop work on?

CMP will specialize in working on the M1Garand, M1 Carbine, 1903 and 1903A3 Springfield, the 1917 Enfield and the Krag. Other rifles like the Remington 40X, Mossberg 44 and H&R Model 12 can also be serviced if needed. CMP will NOT be working on shotguns, pistols, revolvers, M14/M1A, AR15 style rifles or other commercially-produced modern rifles.

The CMP Custom Shop can work on rifles that may have been purchased elsewhere as long as they were made by a USGI contractor. Some examples include: Springfield Armory (not Springfield Inc.), Harrington & Richardson, Winchester, International Harvester, Remington, Rock Island, Eddystone, Inland, Underwood, Rock-Ola, Quality Hardware, National Postal meter, Standard Products, IBM, Irwin-Pederson and Saginaw. There are many NON-USGI copies of the M1 Garand, 1903 Springfield and especially the M1 Carbine that CMP will be unable to work on.

What services will the CMP Custom Shop provide?

The CMP Custom Shop will be able to perform virtually any normal upgrading, accurizing, customizing and refinishing (not to mention regular repairs and troubleshooting) to the types of rifles that we are currently selling or have sold in the recent past. Below is a list of current services provided. If you would like a service not listed, please email [email protected] to see if they can fillful your request.

once i receive my return authorization (ra)#, How do I ship my rifle to the CMP Custom Shop?

Once you receive your Return Authorization (RA)#, customers can fill out the “CMP Custom Shop Request Form” and print a copy. (FILLABLE FORM) After filling out the form completely, make sure a copy is placed in the box/case with the rifle so CMP will know who it’s from and what modifications are requested. The Return Authorization # must be located on the top of the CMP Custom Shop Request Form and on the outside of the shipping box so CMP can verify the shipment when it arrives.

Finally, customers must also fill out the CMP Order Form and include completed forms in their shipment. The CMP will not conduct a NICS background check but still requires a signature on Page 2A of the CMP Order Form. IMPORTANT: If your State or locality requires you to first obtain a license, permit, or Firearms Owner ID card in order to possess or receive a rifle, you must enclose a photocopy of your license, permit, or card with the application for purchase.

What is the cost of Shipping & Handling?

Customers are responsible for shipping expenses when sending items to CMP. Standard CMP shipping charges apply for the shipping of the rifle or other items back to the customer. The current rifle shipping rate is $29.95. The shipping charge for barrels, receivers or parts is $9.95. If you would like a Fed Ex label sent to you, please let the CMP Customer Relations Specialist know when you receive your Return Authorization #. You will be billed $29.95 to have the shipping label mailed to you.

Where do I ship my rifle once I have completed the CMP Custom Shop Request Form, CMP Order Form and received my Return Authorization #?

The CMP Custom Shop shipping address is not the same as the regular CMP shipping address. Correspondence and items for the CMP Custom Shop must be shipped to:
CMP Custom Shop
1803 Coleman Rd
Anniston, AL 36207

When shipping your rifle to the CMP Custom Shop, please make sure the rifle is completely unloaded (do not send any
ammunition with the rifle, spent cases are okay).

What if I have a current order the CMP is processing or if I want to place a rifle order and want the CMP Custom Shop to make modifications prior to shipping the rifle?

If a customer wishes to purchase a rifle from the CMP and have the CMP Custom Shop make modifications to it prior to shipping, that can be done by adding the desired work and Item #'s to the order form page 3A along with the rifle desired.

If a customer has an existing order with the CMP, please contact the CMP Customer Relations Specialist at [email protected] or call (256) 835-8455, ext. 513, to modify your order and add the desired work and item #'s to the order form.
