    Just another new member

    Hi, new member here! My first 1911a1 was from the first CMP lottery round. I picked their higher grade version and CMP shipped a 1943 Ithaca to me. I was actually pretty disappointed with the one CMP shipped to me, because I was hoping for one that showed honest wear and its past history. Instead, I received an arsenal refinished pistol, with mostly new USGI replacement parts and a fresh parkerization finish. It was certainly a great looking pistol that worked as it should, but it just didn't speak to me. This year I met someone that wanted it real bad, so I traded it away without regret. My next post will detail my second 1911a1 that I brought home last week. Stay tuned, M89

    Boy I would be really happy to get one like that. Wanting a more used look you probably should have got the lesser grade than the best grade. I didn't even try for one from the CMP.
