Why does it say unservicable on the paperwork, it is a real treasure.

Because it was a 1911 vs a 1911a1

Default Unserviceable ?

They were classified unserviceable because they were not updated fully to A1 standards, meaning no frame cutouts on the receiver and many had flat grip housings and short grip safeties! Same time period they discovered about 2000 pristine 1911's new in the original packaging since WW I - So the **************s sheared them all up and Springfield Armory in Geneseo Illinois bought the scrap-- If you really want to get sick, many were new in the box US Navy and USMC marked pistols! Millions of dollars gone for no reason during the early 1969 period !

I traded off a DCM 1960's 1911 for something.... this was 37 years ago...same paperwork and same $$$ paid. in the 1970's folks had no interest in ww2 stuff for the most part.

I have my father-in-law's DCM/NRA Remington Rand that he bought while in Chicago (circa 1960) for $17.00. No rebuild marks and its about pristine. He is well into his 80's and says he has the box and paperwork "kickin around somewhere". I should really get after him to find them. Him being a hoarder doesnt help..
He also said the NRA was somehow involved.. Something about showing your membership ID at the time? Have to ask him when I see him again. Funny thing, it was mailed right to his door.
