Default 1911A1 from CMP -1943?

Pistol arrived last week. MY RNG was 1351.

According to colt serial search this is a 1943 1911A1 frame. Ithaca slide, (Although CMP tag says RR). Think the serial is in duplicate range by Ithaca also so could be a curve ball in there.

Several markings on the pistol. G.H.D and Colt proof markings on left side. I think also a "61" on the trigger guard. On the right side of the pistol is A1181 on frame and then a "73" on trigger guard. P marks on left frame and top slide. Barrel is an High Standard HS marked.

If anyone has some input I'd love to hear it!

Interesting that the tag says “mag ok”, to me that means it was magnafluxed for crack inspection. But maybe it means it has a magazine with it????

That's interesting! And here I thought that it meant it inserted and released from the pistol or fed properly. Who knows....

MAG OK means that the magazine feeds correctly, some armorers make note of it some don't. The tags are marked as to who made the receiver, not the slide.

That's my dream gun. I used to ride my bike up "Ithaca Gun Hill Road". The factory was still operational when I lived there. The steep hills of Ithaca get more steep the further up the hill you climb. The hill was steepest right at the factory and once you made it past, the road turns sharply right and eases up. If this link works, the old factory lot is a superfund site on the left side of the road (looking up the hill). The lot is still empty due to the contamination.

Yup, the link works. The view is of the old factory lot.
