Default CMP-legal M9 or M1911

Does anyone know of a good place to get a "ready-to-go" M9 or M1911 pistol that is within the regulations of the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) for their matches?

I know the CMP has strict rules as to which pistols and modifications are legal for their competitions.

the springfield milspec 1911A1 meets the standard and i believe the colt series 70 does as well right out of the box. there are others but those two ar the ones i would pick from. i love colt but for cmp i would prolly opt for the springfield as the sights are a bit better out of the box.

I have heard that these aren't legal due to the type of beaver tail grip safety or something to that effect. I don't want to spend a great deal on a frame and still have to do a lot of fun smithing to it just to be legal for competition.

neither one has a beavertail. the milspec is a direct copy of the 1911A1. ive got both and i can tell ya for sure neither has a beavertail. you can always give springfield and colt a call. both frequently deal with cmp stuff

Any experience with the Les Baer 1912 CMP-legal national match hardball pistol?

ive never shot one or seen one but i had a les baer 6 or 7 years ago. was a good shooter. i cant imagine their cmp gun wouldnt be a shooter.

i just didnt care for the beaver tail, novak cut sights, front grip serrations. was like a cheese grater after a long range session. the beaver tail safeties are just annoying and you cant just change parts out on a pistol like that. ended up selling it and bought my springfield.

their cmp gun looks like a real winner!!

I agree with this but definitely call and find out for sure. I don't see why the Colt Series 70 wouldn't qualify for CMP too. About the only thing it has that the 1911A1 doesn't is the collet bushing but most people long ago converted from the collet back to the standard GI bushing.
