THANKSGIVING WEEKEND - CMP CLOSED. All CMP operations and stores will be closed 22-25 November. Normal operations resume on 26 November. The CMP staff wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

INLAND & UNDERWOOD CARBINES. A small quantity of Inland and Underwood carbines in both Service and Rack grades is still available for purchase, and not subject to the one carbine per customer per year restriction any longer.

JANUARY CARBINE RELEASE. Inspection & Repair and grading of M1 carbines is progressing faster than planned. In addition to the January 7, 2008 scheduled sale of carbines manufactured by Winchester, CMP will also accept mail orders for carbines manufactured by Quality Hardware and Rockola. For operational reasons, we have set a limit of one carbine per customer for each of these manufacturers until further notice. A small quantity of these carbines will be available at both CMP stores beginning January 9, 2008, while quantities last. For additional details, please see

These items are what remains from our I&R operations. These are stripped barreled receivers, but may contain either a front or rear sight or Type 3 front bands. All of these barrels are considered unserviceable for either internal or external rust, pitting, significant wear, or failing to headspace. These barreled receivers are sold as-is with no exchange or refund allowed. For additional details, please see
