I got a call this morning from the CMP letting me know my number came up and a 1911 was available for me. I should have it in hand in a couple of days. Fingers crossed that I get a good one.
It's great it worked out for you. Take some pictures if you get a chance. I think many of us are curious about the pistol.I am really surprised I got the call. There were 19K applications for 8K pistols and I was 9503rd in line. I received an email months ago telling me there wouldn't be enough pistols to fill my order and had given up hope.
