Effective October 1, 2023, the CMP’s new yearly limit on M1 Garands will be 6 per calendar year. Effective April 10, 2024, customers are allowed to purchase up to 2 bolt action rifles per year. We have also made an exception for the Auction- if a customer has already purchased their limit but would like to bid on an auction bolt action, they are allowed to do so and purchase should they win the bid.

Ammo Limits are 2000 rounds per caliber per year. 22 Caliber ammo is limited to 10,000 rds when packaged in 5000 round cases.

Ordering via the CMP E-STORE

View our CMP E-Store. If you need assistance in setting up your E-Store account, please contact lcurry@thecmp.org or call (256) 835-8455, ext. 344.


Prices shown on the website are current and supercede all previously published prices, both on-line and in printed catalogs. Prices are subject to change without prior notice. We will notify customers of significant price changes before filling orders.

Order-Ship Time

Due to high demand for the CMP M1 Garand, it can take 30-45 days for customers to receive their rifle order. It could be longer depending on whether the preferred rifle is not available or we need additional documentation to process the order. CMP will email customers once their order is received, if additional documentation is needed or if there is a delay processing the order. Customers will also receive emails once their order is awaiting shipment and once their order has shipped (this email will include the Fed Ex tracking number). Customers with a CMP E-Store account may also log in and view their order details online.

If you have questions regarding your order, please email CUSTSERVE@THECMP.ORG. Please include the order number (if known) in the subject line to expedite responses. Thank you for your support and patience!

Shipping Methods

Please Note: Fed Ex now requires all Adult Signature packages (rifles/ammo/pistols) to have a person 21 or older at the residence or FFL Dealer and the Fed Ex driver will scan their license/government id. The new Fed Ex policy will not allow them to deliver the items without scanning the driver licenses/government id (must be 21 or over).

Rifles are shipped FedEx overnight. Ammunition is shipped FedEx Ground. Most other items are shipped FedEx Express Saver.

For all rifle and ammo shipments – adult signature required (must be over 21 and have a license/government id scanned by the Fed Ex driver for delivery).

If you have a P.O. Box, please be sure to provide a valid street address on your order.

Returns and Exchanges

CMP rifles are sold “AS IS” WITH NO WARRANTY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. However, we do sometimes make mistakes, and if there are any problems with the rifle or any other item, please contact us immediately at (256) 835-8455. If the error was ours, we will have the item returned at our expense for replacement or refund.

To help expedite processing of returns, we request that a letter of explanation be included, along with all original paperwork.

Damaged Shipments

When merchandise received in a FedEx shipment is found to be damaged at the time of delivery, notify driver to initiate claim at that time and notify CMP of the claim number.

Should damage be found after the driver has left, report damage to CMP South Customer Service at (256) 835-8455. We will arrange for return of the material to us. Please hold original packaging to support any claims that may be filed.

CMP will replace damaged material. Settlement payments are made to the CMP and not the consignee.

A Note For Repeat Customers

CMP revised the purchase forms and streamlined procedures for repeat customers. If you complete a new Universal Purchaser Certification and Agreement to buy a rifle from the CMP, signed before a Notary Public, you may for a period of three (3) years thereafter submit an application to purchase additional rifles, parts or ammunition without having the Purchaser Certification and Agreement notarized – provided that the “SHIP TO” address on the order form remains exactly the same.

Although for repeat orders you will not have to have the forms notarized, hard copy liability/order/certification forms – pages 1A, 2A and 3A – must still be completed and sent to the CMP with original (wet) signatures. These orders may not be faxed or emailed.

After three years a new notarized Universal Purchaser Certification and Agreement will be required for any additional rifle purchases. Any change of address on the order form automatically will require a new notarized Universal Purchaser Certification and Agreement.

Proof of citizenship, age, CMP-affiliated club membership and competitive shooting participation, and any copy of any license, permit, or Firearms Owner ID card required by your State or locality submitted with your initial “Universal” application will be kept on file by the CMP. If any item of proof above has expired, you must submit proof of current status with any subsequent application.
