And I believe the CMP Lottery is used for rarer firearms when they are available but I am not completely sure

About 10 years ago, CMP, or was it still DCM then..I forget, had a lot of M1D rifles they put up for sale using the lottery system. Your name went in the hat so to speak and if your name was drawn you sent in your paperwork and the rifle showed up at your doorstep a month or 2 later. The rifles were complete packages with scope, flash hider, sling, and cheekpiece all for the dastardly price of $650. They did the same thing for a limited # of M1903, M1903A3 and M1903A4 (sans scope) rifles around the same time. A later lot of M1Ds was sold first come, first served for $1200 or $950 for AL NG SF rifles that were missing an item or 2. Now, pretty much anything of this type goes thru the CMP auction bringing a MUCH higher price.

Everything is starting to jumble together. Didn't they do a 3rd lot of M1Ds in the past few years for around $2K?

Around the same time-period of the M1D lottery, they did a sealed bid-style auction for ~40 M1C's.

not an M1D, but looking back, I feel I won the lottery

Dracster: You are correct in that CMP sold 100 M1D's in September of 2003, sans flashhider for $2700 each. HTH

It wasn't all that easy to get drawn--it didn't take the CMP long to have a pretty large pool of entries. I think this was the 2nd pool of M1D's (w/ price increase). Did I mention I was one of 20 drawn for the remaining rifles that were unclaimed? ;)

M1 Garand Rifle - Sales Program

M1D Lottery
M1903 Series Lottery



NO CARBINE SALES TO INDIVIDUALS
The CMP Board of Directors has decided to continue the Long-Standing
U.S. Army Policy of providing M1 Carbines to CMP affiliated Clubs and
State Associations only. The CMP will not sell M1 Carbines to
Individuals.



M1 D Lottery

The Civilian Marksmanship Program has now available for sale
approximately 1000 M1 D Rifles. Most of these rifles are complete with
all original accessories in original packaging as issued by the U.S.
Army. A small quantity of the rifles has recently been turned in by
the Special Forces and they are complete except for the flash hider
and do show some wear.

This sale will exhaust all M1 D rifles in the possession of the CMP.
It is highly unlikely that a quantity of this size will ever be made
available to the CMP again.

Because of the large amount of interest shown in the previous M1 D
sale, this sale will also be conducted in lottery fashion.

Anyone interested in purchasing one of these rifles should submit the
following information: Name, SSN, Address, Telephone Number, and the
name of the CMP affiliated club or State Association of which they are
a member in writing to CMP, P.O. Box 576, Port Clinton, Ohio, 43452,
by fax (614) 336-6289 or by e-mail to rifles@odcmp.com.

Price of the complete M1D is $1200.00. Price of the Special Forces M1D
is $950.00.

There are already over 10,000 requests on file from the previous M1D
lottery.
Individuals who submitted their names for the previous
lottery need not re-submit for this one. All names from the previous
lottery will also be used for this one.

Individuals who did receive an M1 D as a result of the last lottery
will not be eligible to receive another.

Drawings for the "complete" M1 D rifles are scheduled as follows:

September 29, 1998 – 200 rifles
October 29, 1998 – 200 rifles
November 24, 1998 – 200 rifles
December 17, 1998 – 200 rifles
January 26, 1999 – Remainder of "complete" rifles
February 23, 1999 – 156 "Special Forces" rifles
March 29, 1999 – For the remaining quantity of rifles for which
winners failed to submit applications or payment, or were otherwise
found ineligible.
Additional drawings will be scheduled monthly if necessary until the
total quantity is sold.


Winners will be notified by mail and will have 30 days to submit
completed applications and full payment. If application and payment
are not received within 30 days of notification, the selection will be
disqualified and the name removed from the lottery pool for future
drawings.



M1903 Series Lottery

The Civilian Marksmanship Program has now available for sale the
following M1903 series rifles:

M1903 – 425 rifles - $250.00
M1903 Mark I – 99 rifles - $300.00
M1903A3 – 45 rifles - $300.00

This sale will exhaust all of these type rifles in the possession of
the CMP.

Because of the large amount of interest shown in previous sales and
the relatively small quantity of these rifles available, this sale
will also be conducted in lottery fashion.

Anyone interested in purchasing one of these rifles should submit the
following information in writing or by e-mail: Name, SSN, Address,
Telephone Number, and the name of the CMP affiliated club or State
Association of which they are a member. Individuals should specify
which type or types of rifles they are interested in.

Individuals who submitted their names for the previous M1903 lottery
need not re-submit for this one, unless they are interested in either
or both of the other two models All names from the previous lottery
will also be used for this one.

Individuals who received an M1903 as a result of the last lottery will
not be eligible to receive another M1903.

Drawings for the rifles are scheduled as follows:

November 4, 1998 –
99 M1903 Mark I;
45 M1903A3;
150 M1903

January 5, 1999 –

Remainder of M1903 rifles
March 29, 1999 – Remaining quantity of rifles for which winners
failed to submit applications or payment, or were otherwise found
ineligible.
Additional drawings will be scheduled monthly if necessary until the
total quantity is sold.


Winners will be notified by mail and will have 30 days to submit
completed applications and full payment. If application and payment
are not received within 30 days of notification, the selection will be
disqualified and the name removed from the lottery pool for future
drawings.

You are encouraged to give this information the widest possible
distribution to all club and association members. The sale of these
historic rifles will assist the CMP in our self-sufficiency efforts,
as well as allow interested individuals the opportunity to purchase a
piece of our nation's proud military History.

I was in the lottery for an M1D from the beginning and I didn't get picked for years. But my number finally came up.





Got it before I had a digital camera so I don't have any photos to post, but its a beauty.

This is all true, as I recollect, but I can't say that the first M1D lottery was a hard one to win. I must know half a dozen guys from my small club who got one. The first M1D lottery was kinda-sorta pre-internet, and fewer people heard about it in time to take advantage of it. At the very least, CMP had nothing like their current internet presence back then.

Hafta admit, though. that was a pretty good way to spend $650. Wonder what a pristine version of the original $650 M1Ds is going for now, unfired but complete? Must be over 3K.



Both myself and my mom got an M1D the first time around. My dad got one of the M1C's and my bro got one of the M1903A4. Oddly enough, Mom and I were also drawn for the M1903 lottery. Her's was a beat up sewerpipe gun that we dumped at the next gun show. I never saw mine. I didn't have the $250 and was too prideful stupid to ask to borrow the cash.
