Default CMP Remington Rand

Best guesses,
1943 Rand frame
type 3 Rand slide
unknown mark or nick(?) under trigger guard
G on top of frame?
U at base and W at tip of frame barrel tunnel
Contract barrel, post Vietnam? looks new, chromed
Barrel lug S&W left side
Barrel lug Weak M? and pronounced P on right side
Weak crossed cannons, good FJA, poorly struck P on right side of frame
Star K grips, #20, #4
a little oil and the wormy patched/scratches faded right out.
Parkerized evenly overall

Looking good!!!

The "Star K grips" are commonly referred to as KEYES grips (made by KEYES FIBER)!!!

S&W produced replacement barrels into the 80s!!!

Yup, I have heard exactly absolutely nothing whatsoever.....


Enjoy that fine pistol!! I carried a Remington Rand during the first Gulf war as well as during the Bosnian excitement. (M-11/Sig 228 in Iraq.)

Half the fun is the research! DDrode named a couple great sites for checking out. My buddy at work has a Clawsons' book (under lock and key) for some future digging... The largest brain trust is this CMP Forum.
Already picked up a holster, yup, very happy about this pistol.
