I just picked up my service grade 1911A1. Early 44 Remington frame with a post war Colt slide. Looks to be original finish on both slide and frame. It’s obviously been through a rebuild with the replacement Colt slide, but there are absolutely no rebuild markings. The frame does have the expected WW2 markings, FJA behind the trigger, cross cannons in front of the hammer. I suppose it was rebuilt at a lower echelon that did not mark their work. It also shows slight wear around the sharp edges of the slide, so it was issued and carried for some time before making the trip to Anniston. I’m happy to receive this piece of history that offers both collectibility and shoot ability!!

Very unlikely that it's "original finish"...


BUT...


Can't tell much of anything about it from your pic!!!

Ok, I’ve spent a little time tearing the old girl down and wiping her with some gun oil.
Let’s say the slide and frame have similar matching finish.

Is this a post war barrel?

And the grips?

excellent, I seem to remember you were hoping it would get to your number, it did!

Gov't model slide is a post war, but commercial marking. Interesting - coolgunsite has a page on them if you don't have the books

well done

A little research says an early Remington barrel and Keyes grips. An eclectic mix, I like it!!

You could put mine right next to yours and not tell the difference. I was 7359, late 44 rem frame and colt replacement slide and no rebuild markings. Hard slide shooters awesome!
