    Merry Christmas to you too LT. Been waiting for a couple of years to see this come through. Probably another year or more before the pistols are actually released to the DCM/CMP for sales to the common folk. Most of these pistols were in unit arsenals up to about 1986 or so. All were manufactured before 1946. I would bet that all have been refurbished/arsenal rebuilt at sometime throughout their lives but it is nice to hope that there are a couple of pristine, all original pistols that might surface.

    The Gooberment will probably take all our guns in the next couple years anyway or at least try too, so these may well never materialize. We'll see.

    How does one find and acquire one of these lead lobbers? And at what price? The hear the 1911 can be a fine hip pocket howitzer with a little work.

    Fred,

    They will probably be sold through the DCM/CMP (Director of Civilian Marksmanship/Civilian Marksmanship Program).

    Thanks for the link. I think I'ld rather get an M-1 come to think of it. Some guns and some shooters mesh rather well, for me a borrowed Garand just felt right.

    I got a couple of them from the then DCM back in the eighties for $164 each. One was very VERY nice. I wish I would have gotten a dozen more.

    It appears the Kenyan Bastard Child's 'Talk Gun Control over Thanksgiving" was a huge success:

    Patriots are buying guns in great numbers....I am sure I will be fighting the X~Mas Shopping crowds at the Lima/Allen County Gun Show this weekend:
