Default 1911 Slide marked "GI Replacement" ???

My buddy finally received his Service grade 1911 yesterday and the slide is identified as a "GI replacement" (with what looks like a serial # stamped on the side?). Does anybody know what that actually means? Or who made the slide? And we can't find any other markings on the slide. Any help would be appreciated..... Thanks!

Government contract hard replacement slide. At least a half dozen contractors. Good long lasting slide. What failed was the older area hardened slides and un-hardened pre 1945 slides. The number is a inventory Cage code number.

That is not a serial number on that replacement slide. That is the part number or drawing number.

Not much to add to the above except that sometimes they were manufacturer marked, sometimes not. Appears this one is not.

I am curious to the areas that should be inspected for cracks on both the slides and frames? Anyone have any examples?

Thanks

USS slides have been known to crack under the ejection port
