It doesn't say the US is trying to ban the buyback it simply posted that they are opposing the sale. It's not surprising to me that our current administration would do this but we need to be careful not to spread untruths or pull things out of proprtion.

In any event, we'll know soon enough if the rifles show up for sale at CMP or another importer.

Cane explained this in another thread. At least I think it's the same thing.

Still not sure it's a total no-go. Sounds like they may try and work it out still. But I do understand that we (USA) collectors are the ones most concerned with aquiring them.

He did awhile back, do not remember the dates of discussion. It is a shame that we will never see them.

Yep, Obama is a sorry piece of work. However, the re-importation of M1 rifles and M1 carbines has been illegal for a long time. Bill Clinton cited the "sporting purposes" clause of the GCA of 1968 when he banned their re-import in 1994.

In 1989 Bush I banned the importation of foreign made semi-auto milsurp weapons.

BTW: The wonderful gun loving Bush II refused to overturn these bans. We have had four sorry anti-gunners in the white house, one right after the other.

Orest Michaels (CMP) long ago stated that the CMP will NOT be receiving any of those rifles from Korea since they are not an "importer". They can only obtain rifles that have been returned directly to the US Army, and even then there is no guarantee that Army will forward any of the weapons to the CMP.

Ok Highpower... My wording was confusing and you are correct CMP is NOT an importer. What I meant was that they might come back through CMP or that another importer "might" bring them in IF allowed to do so by the US government. We good now?

I don't think your wording was confusing at all sir, and I understood what you meant. All I was trying to point out was that there is no way the CMP will be getting or selling any of those particular rifles. As I said before, that comes directly from Mr. Michaels who is the director of operations.

I'm sorry if you took umbrage to my post. My only reason for pointing it out is because every time something like this gets posted on the interwebs the CMP gets flooded with phone calls from folks wanting to buy these rifles. All that does is tie up the staff by answering phone calls all day long about items they don't have - instead of being able to process the orders from customers for items they do have. And that considerably extends the time it takes to ship legitimate orders to waiting customers.

Eventually it forces the staff to not answer ANY phone calls, so they can get their work done and get caught up on processing their orders. Which also means customers that need to get their information updated, or have a problem with a previous order cannot get through to resolve current issues. It turns into a vicious cycle.

Nothing against you T.O.M......
