I essentially agree with your reasoning, but keeping in mind, that the average unit armorer did not care, a 1911a1 was a 1911a1 whether it started as a 1911 or not, and museum is essentially the same thing, most museums just want a representative piece. Only a very good, precise museum curator would know the difference.

BTW, The last time I saw 1911a1's was at the 54th Area Support Group in the Netherlands in 1993-94 time-frame (MP Station), when we received the new M9's and switched over.
