I could sell any of the rifles I have bought from CMP for a good bit more than I paid for them. Some of that is because a lot of them were bought at the CMP North Store, and I could see what I was buying. Still, I expect some people to be willing to pay more for these pistols than CMP sells them for.

I think the problem is that the CMP has gotten greedy.....or the gun lobby has put a hitch in their giddy up. Or...maybe......US military collectible gun inflation is going up faster than a hot air balloon at a risk your life festival.

Did a quick look and I bought a M1 Garand in good, tested, shipped to me in a foam lined box, ,and made in October of 1943 edition for $435. I also bought a Remington 1903A3 in equally good condition for $452. The 03A3 was in 2004 and the M1 a couple of years before and of course there has been some inflation.....but..
