Here is a photo of my 1944 Colt 1911A1 which has a replacement slide. Based on the CAGE # it is a 1981 plus ventage slide from Numax. It looks great and I’m happy with it. I can’t wait to fire it.

Picked up my CMP pistol from my FFL today. I'm pretty happy with it

Not super familiar with what parts are "correct" or interesting from a historical perspective on these 1911s. From the bit of research I did tonight, it seems to be a 43-44 Remington Rand, Anniston rebuild. Don't know much about the barrel or whether the slide matches. Can't wait to shoot it!

Picked mine up Friday, tag says Ithaca and serial number on the other side.

Haven't done much research on it.

Did find one hiccup. Wanted to dissemble it and check for markings or numbers on internal parts. Removed recoil spring, and barrel bushing. When I got to the slide stop pin, it would not come out. Seem to remember it should pop out with a push from the left and then pull it out from the right. No matter how hard I pushed, it only moved maybe 1/32 if an inch. Used a small drift punch and still would not come out. Gentle tap on the punch with a small hammer, still nothing. Stopped an put it back together. Going to stop by my gunsmith Monday to see what I'm missing.

Any ideas what's going on? Thought perhaps since it's a relatively "new" gun, may need more than a gentle tap.

Default Black Army Rework

Here is my 1918 Colt 1911. It started life as a Colt "Black Army" and was reworked before or during WWII. Parts changed were grips, trigger, and barrel (High Standard). It sports a fire blued hammer and the nose, but not the slide notch, was hardened. You can't see by the pics but it seems like they left some of the original finish on when they reworked it creating a very odd pattern. With all the nicks, scratches etc., I would love to know the story of where it's been. Dad got it in 1973 in a art gallery/gun store near Chicago for the princely sum of $60.

Here's my newly aquired SA rebuild. I've been keeping my eye on this one for several months online at a pawn shop located in AR. Finally bit the bullet and negotiated a deal with the shop. Price was quite a bit less than a rack grade CMP pistol, but it was in need of a good cleaning and a correct set of grips.

Received 12/05/18. The finish reminds me of my Valmet76

I received my 1911 Dec. 5th. The 1944 Receiver made by Ithaca, slide by Colt and barrel by High Standard. All parts fit tight... no rattles when I shake it. I like the fact that the slide is WWWII and has the spot heat treatment on the front quarter and the side notches.

These old pistols have a lot of markings on them. I was surprised to find a really faint Ordinance wheel and the number 20 written with a electric pencil on the back right hand side of the receiver.

Can someone help me ID the MB stamped on the right side of the slide? Also an arrow pointing 'up and down' symbol on the left front side of the trigger guard?

If by "MP" on the right side of the receiver you mean the "MB" at the right rear of the slide, that is thought to mean that the slide was magnafluxed at some point, the "B" being the location. Barstow? Benecia? I've never seen a consensus on this; maybe someone else here can shed some light. You got a good one, though.
