That's the original Army inspector's acceptance stamp, "GHS", for Maj. Gilbert H Stewart.

These are really nice. I didnt get mine from CMP but really respect these guns whether they are rebuilt or not.

By SN this was a run of 33,814 manufactured in 1917.
Nice one.

Nice, keep the faith folks. I have a feeling they received additional units, and are filling the applications first before going to auctions or a second round.

That is because they stopped accepting orders for 1911's in 2018. These people have been waiting for almost two years for the gun they ordered in September 2018.

CMP will stop accepting orders at the end of business on 4 October 2018.
Read the rest of the page and you will see how the sale was organized and they said at the time they would not accept new orders until all of the first round orders were filled. I got mine about a year ago, Thanks to the luck of the random number generator.
