Appreciate your time & detective efforts on this - Those photos and info in chronological order seem to prove out Albany. Thanks!

Hi Guys n Gals, rng #2160 here. Picked up my 1911 yesterday. I know very little about them but always wanted a GI. There's a pic of my Dad during the Korean war with a 1911 in a shoulder holster, so hey, gotta have one! Anyhow it's a Ithaca frame with a Remington Rand slide. On the left is the P below the mag release and FJA below the slide release along with what I assume is the Ithaca stamp on the front side of the trigger guard. It's struck a little crooked and only half showing an x or cross. Here is what I wonder about. On the right is the serial #1230249 which I found is 1943. But other than the united states property and M 1911 A1 US ARMY the only stamp is a 7 on the side of the trigger guard. I see most of you guys have more marks. How do you determine if it's an LEAD or other armory? On my Garands its on the side of the receiver and not visible, is it the same with the 1911's? Thanks!

Not all of them were marked during rebuild so there is no way to know.

Then this is the next stage of rebuild, where it does mark that it was rebuilt at Albany.




Here is one with the previous A-O-71 rebuild mark with the A stamped over it. But I think Albany stopped using a electric etcher and just stamped them and dropped the O for overhaul.




But then Barstow seems to have never dropped the electropencil or the O. There is least an 1976, 1979, and 1983 all done like this. The one OB 83 was done over a O-68.



This thread is Great .
Thanks cplnorton and DTC & all the others who have put in their info, or reported their Rebuild markings for this research post on these "A" rebuild marked 1911A1's some of us have received !
Myself being a recipient of one , I keep checking here to see what info has been found on these pieces of history ....
