1911: I was amazed.
July 23, 2019Civilian Marksmanship Program▸Sales▸1911 Program▸1911: I was amazed.
When I received the call but was only offered Field and Rack grades, I became concerned that I would not be receiving a 1911 meeting my expectations.
Then when I saw that others with higher RGNs than mine and with later call dates were being offered Service 1911s, I became more concerned.
Today, when I saw the CMP pistol case, I was amazed.
When my FFL opened the case, I was blown away with the fantastic appearance, fit and condition of my (formerly property of the US government) 1911.
All my concerns were wiped out.
Thank you CMP for however I lucked out with this fine firearm.
I don’t know what made it a field grade, but I am well pleased it made it into my hands in its condition.
I am eager to check it out on the bench and at the range.
