Why Didn't I Think Of This Earlier?

I've been corresponding with a gentleman on Facebook about tracking down the history of the M1911A1 I was issued back in '89.

He's connected with someone who can dig in the computers and look things up.

Today he says:

Oh, call the CMP with the serial.  See if they have it.  If they do, they will flag it and you can actually buy it.  Tell them you were issued it.  If it's in their system, which it most likely is, they flag the serial and won't sell unless you tell them your don't want it.  I've done this on others ones before.

It's worth a shot!

  1. Hey Angus;

    That would be righteously cool if they can do that. That would be seriously blogworthy and an eventual heirloom item passed down for generations :)
