There isnít a serial number range. In one of the volumes by Scott Meadows it mentions the Marine pistols. The Marines seemed to have done it during one of their big overhauls. The Army did some pistols too however, it doesnít seem to go beyond a feasibility study. I donít have my books with me to give you a more accurate reference. I know Ohio Don bought the books and Iím sure he will be back.

All of these pistols have already turned what we seem to know about rebuilds on its head.

I took it out while the kids were napping and put 150 flawless rounds through it

While the slide wouldn't be big on my preference list, it and the modified receiver make a great pistol combo.

Great!

Some 1911's were shipped directly from Colt to the USMC, so those are known through Colt's shipping records. Clawson's big book has them in Appendix A. Colt only recorded up to 600,000 (March 1919).

The ones that were recorded closest to your pistol (approximately 48,000 of them) were sent to the Depot Officer, Army Reserve Depot, South Schenectady, NY.

Um... was unaware that these would have replacement slides. Not sure I'd want one. That greatly devalues the gun.

Your opinion. I'd be glad to have that one, cool history and documents transition from 1911 to 1911A1 with a rebuild.

Good for you Mr. McCoy!

It's not an opinion but a fact! Yes, it's cool and all but not worth the price. Go read the other posts discussing these and you'll see I'm not the only one. That slide is worth very little. I've had them before and could barely get $25-$50 each for them. It is what it is though, and I wouldn't swap it out but just not worth the $1,050. If you tried to part it out you may get half your money back for the frame. These should have been placed in a category of their own. Here's hoping he didn't get a newer barrel either. As long as you're happy with it that's all that matters.
