Default Eye Candy for those still waiting

***Disclaimer - I am regular forum member bigred, not forum admin big_red***

I was number 2066 and picked up my pistol from my FFL last week. I don't claim to know a lot about 1911s, but I believe this one is pretty typical of what a normal person would expect from a 60+ year old military service pistol. According to what I recently read online, it is indeed a mixmaster of parts to include a Colt frame and a Remington Rand slide.

SN is 7177XX





And here it is in use....well....maybe.

That’s a rare frame. I think less than 6k were marked CSR. I don’t have my books with me to look but I will check for sure when I get home.

Do you mind sharing the first part of your serial number?

I like it. Does not look like it was re-parked, but if it was at least they did not sand the crap out of the roll marks!
