Civilian Marksmanship

Posted on May 22, 2018


General CMP Information:

While supplies of M1s and other surplus rifles are drying up, the Army may release 1911s. The CMP posted how the 1911 sales would proceed. “The customer will have to send in a complete new order packet with all new qualifying criteria included. Everyone will be a new customer, everyone starts with no advantage or disadvantage. CMP 1911 is an FFL governed operation and is a separate entity from CMP and has its own record keeping operation with no ties to the old CMP records.” To avoid problems, it may be wise to have a recent “Certificate of Achievement” for your proof of participation in a marksmanship activity.

The CMP also sells new ammo, match rifles, rifle parts, and a range of goods pertaining to marksmanship. Lots of good training material is available as well. Go to
