The club membership fee will not increase for 2013
The Club membership fee is only $14.00 USD for one year. All memberships will run from the day of issuance. Most of the other Clubs' fees run from January to December or start in September each year. Some Clubs require you to rejoin even after a couple of months of membership benefits. For example if you join in July and the new membership term starts in October you must renew in October. So are you getting a full year of membership benefits?
By joining the M1CC you get a full 365 day's of actual membership, not months based on when you join like some other clubs.
None of the M1CC membership dues goes to payment of salaries or travel for M1CC board members. We are all volunteers putting in countless hours each day to serve you.
The M1CC, from time to time, has had give away contests that are free to enter. All you have to do is provide some form of assistance to the club. This can range from recruiting activities to helping run a rifle match and so much more...
We here at the M1CC want the club to reflect you and your interest. We love active participation from the members.
We have given away free membership extensions and autographed technical books from the likes as Scott Duff and others.
Are we the biggest club out there...No. But we continue to grow each and every day. We grow simply by word of mouth from our satisfied membership.

Membership continues to grow with many new members joining at the CMP North and South Stores.
March 28, 2011: Just a quick note about the success of the M1 rifle for vets donation program. Through out last year the club members and friends donated enough parts for the club to build and donate 5 beautiful M1 Garands to the M1 for vet's program.
The club has explored accepting credit card processing and in order to accept credit cards we would need to increase the membership fee associated with the high cost of credit card processing. To date the lowest cost company will cost the club 2.9% plus a 30 cent transaction fee coupled with a $30.00 a month credit card acceptance fee to operate have virtual terminal and website credit card processing.
Please contact the club if accepting credit cards would be a viable option for you.
On another front, we are preparing to sent email reminders to each member prior to their membership expiration date in order to assist you in the renewal process.
Please take the time to visit the M1 Collectors Club on the Battle Tested forum.
The rifles were expertly rebuilt and refinished by Shuffs Parkerizing in Michigan. Our thanks goes out to those who donated the parts, and to Tim and Sean and others at Shuffs Parkerizing for their assistance with this project.
The 5th rifle donation will be presented to a much deserving vet in Florida very soon. Please check back and see pictures of the donation.

CREDIT CARD PROCESSING SUSPENDED
OCTOBER 12, 2010
MARCH 27,2011 (UPDATE)
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY ALL CREDIT CARD TRANSACTIONS REMAIN SUSPENDED UNTIL THE CLUB FINDS A NEW VENDOR. ACCORDING TO INFORMATION OBTAINED BY THE CLUB THE LAST VENDOR HAS HAD ISSUES PROCESSING CLIENTS TRANSACTIONS.
In addition, there were many persons who signed up for memberships at one of the two CMP stores that failed to provide all the required information about their credit card and purchased firearms from the CMP. To date, many of these people still have not paid their membership. As such we asked the CMP to cease allowing individuals to become members at the stores.
We would like to restart allowing people to sign up at the stores as a conveince sometime in the future but will require payment by cash or a check.
If you have provided the club with your credit card information we will continue your membership and recontract you once the new credit card processing company is located.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
