Default I found my 1960 weapons card, now looking for the pistol.

The 1911A1 serial #1033486 pistol had an Ithaca slide when I carried it in late 1950's and 1960's. Thought I might find out where it is now, on this site. Bob.

Ya Bob I carried a 4 inch model 10 revolver, often wondered why CMP never offered those units to be sold, got to be 20,000, Smith and Wesson had that contract for years, I carried my 10 in mid 66 up thru 74, it was in perfect shape when I exchanged it for a 2 inch model 10 at Fort Meade.

Odds are pretty good, better order one so you will have something to barter with if it turns up.

I won a Colt Colt in the first go round. I would like to see the pistol once again, for old time sake.

They never offered them for sale because they never had them. No decision on CMPs part at all.

I received an Ithaca, orig finish, no rebuild, correct less 1 grip panel. Not looking to move it but I checked, it's not yours (#2xxxxxx).
One down, 18,000 to go :-)

Did the armed forces scrap the revolvers or are they hiding in crates somewhere?

Ya GH I understand that, my question is why? The government is carrying autos now, so what ever happen to all the revolvers we carried in the Millitary.

Because the gov't legislature has not allowed it.
First it has to be declared surplis, then it is decided, do we put it in storage or destroy it. I imagine many were destroyed.

We had 220+ 1911a1's in our arms room
Another 15-20 38 special - 2 inc snub nose colt and S&W - 4 inch Ruger and S&W

CMP has no say what gets sent to them, but the only pistol calibers allowed are 45 acp, so no 38 spl or 9mm - write your congress

Under (h) Authorized Transfers, the law only allows the Army to transfer up to 10k .45 M1911/M1911A1 handguns to the CMP a year. No other handguns are authorized.

Hi Bob:

The s/n on your issued pistol made me curious.

S/n 1033486 falls into a range of frames (s/n 916405-1041404) produced by Remington Rand in 1942-1943.
Colt duplicated a portion of the same s/n range in 1943 (s/n 921700-1041404).

See "1942-1943," at this link: Serial Numbers

So you were issued either a RR frame, or a Colt frame.
To know which one, you would need to inspect the frame for distinguishing stamps.
The inspector stamps are different.
Plus the Colt frame has the s/n in Roman font, and has the "Verified Proof" stamp (stylized "VP") on the trigger guard (and perhaps other unique stamps).
But you still need to see the frame.

You're really looking for two frames with s/n 1033486 -- but only one of them was issued to you.
