It's not common that the Army used single letter Armory rebuild codes. My hunch is it is for Albany.

But I don't know that. I should have a report back on the first one within a couple weeks and it should give us a pretty good indicator of what it was.
Would that be the same as the Watervliet Arsenal that built/builds cannons? I just can't seemed to find anything except for the old 1800s Albany Arsenal which closed in the 1800s...

I was all for it being MCLB Albany until I saw someone who said theirs was LEAD marked as well. I think it prudent to look and see if there are ANAD marked pistols marked during the same period as the A marked pistols.

Look no farther then Ithaca M1911A1 S/N 2088647 pistol featured towards the end of the American Rifleman article (link below). The ANAD 6 78 date overlaps the A month and year dates in this thread.

I didn't see a thing in the Wikiepedia article about Letterkenny rebuilding small arms for the army.
