    All of the M9s will probably be shredded and melted down at Anniston Army Depot or passed on to another friendly military.

    Most of them are pretty well worn out as is.

    Agreed, our M9 inventory is by all description rather worn out. However there is something about owning a piece of military history.

    I have a really clapped out Inglis HiPower made in 1945 and last refurbed by the Canadians in the early 60s. Worn as it is, it is still a favorite of mine.

    I posted a similar thread a month or two ago. The general consensus, from those who were issued them, was that they will be crappy at best and crappier at worst. I would still buy one if they were inexpensive.

    My opinion is that all the good ones will be cherry picked by the dealers lucky enough to get some. As far as I understand they can not be offered by the CMP because the legislation creating the CMP only speaks of .22 and .30 cal rifles. I may be wrong because I just glossed over the page.
    Some people just plain suck.

    I believe the CMP still has to work out the details over the 1911's with the Army. Then they have to inspect them because they were pretty worn out when the Beretta replaced them.

    The CMP cannot deal in handguns as per their Congressman charter.

    There will be no surplus Berettas unless they are sold to say Israel and then they end up back here after being sold to an importer.

    you know, my understanding is, some springs and decent mags and they'd probably run fine.
    I might be in for one if they're cheap.

    There is a reason you never see surplus US handguns except for WWII era ones, because it ain't gonna happen.

    If you want a surplus Beretta, look for an Israeli one or a police trade.
