Default Son's M1911A1

My son received his M1911A1, an Ithaca frame with a Remington Rand slide, a while back. It is an Albany USMC rebuild, if CPLNORTON's research (thank you!) is correct.

Default CMP Colt 1911a1

I received this pistol back in early Feb. ( I was #2586). Colt frame and slide, serial number toward the end of production, July-ish 1945. Happy camper!

Default 1945 remington Rand

Here`s mine. I`m very pleased.

God grant me the wisdom to accept that which I cannot change, and enough ammunition to hold out until morning.

Default FG Colt/USGI 207265

Link shows the Field Grade Colt pistol that I picked up yesterday afternoon from my FFL. Photos were taken then the pistol was stripped and cleaned. Everything is tight with no rattles or loose parts. The only markings on the pistol are shown in the photos. Between the rain showers today I put 100 rounds down range at 7, 10, and 25 yards without any issues. Point of aim, point of impact except for a couple of flyers. Very pleased with what I received. Only offered FG and the only thing that differentiates mine from the rest of the fine specimens posted is $100 and an unmarked slide. I must say that this is a better shooting example than most of what was issued while active duty.


Update: Per information found on various websites, to include the official Colt site, this pistol was produced sometime in late 1917. Per the sources used by "thebearpack", this pistol started its military life when it was shipped to the Greenville Piers, NJ on the 21st of January, 1918. After receiving the information supplied by "thebearpack", this pistol has become priceless to my family. I was born on the same date (day and month) that this pistol started its military career, however almost a half century later. The pistol still functions flawlessly at 101+ years old which is much better than I can say for myself at 50+ years of age.

Thank You CMP1911

A question for those who are far more knowledgeable on 1911s than I...

Here's my 1911, a Remington Rand frame and slide from 1945:

LEAD and OB83 markings:

But what has me puzzled are the following markings on the slide, frame and barrel:

MR or MB??

I've found only one image of a MR stamp on a 1911 and it doesn't look anything like these. But I haven't found any information on a MB stamp online...

Otherwise, this 1911 looks in great shape and appears mostly correct for 1945, except for the replacement magazine and perhaps the hammer (it's serrated, not checkered).

If anyone can provide any insight on the MB verses MR question, it would be greatly appreciated!

And thank you CMP1911 for my 1911!
