Default 1911 arrived





It has a Colt's PT. F.A. MFG CO. Hartford. Conn. U.S.A. slide with numbers 7790314 on the other, new barrel, GHD, ANAD 4 76, SA,. Where would I find the frame information? These photos taken in the sun and shows the finish as it is, reminds me of my Valmet76 finish. I Like It!

I believe they write the manufacturer of the frame on the tag, so I think you may have a matching frame and slide....

With 1911A1’s it is pretty easy to identify frames:
Inspection mark of FJA is either Remington Rand or Ithaca
RCD in circle is union switch and signal
A frame with an s prefix serial number is singer
Any thing else ( primarily ghd) is colt

Interesting. I am curious, for those who don't like this (FYI, I would be 100% satisfied with all posted in this thread), just what was expected, based on the descriptions given and actual facts released (including the AR article)?
The newest was made in what, 1945? They were advertised (not that CMP needed to repeat this) as having been in service since, and many were rebuilt and placed in storage.
That is what I envisioned. Will there be some gems in the general release; well, based on CMP's history, I expect such (and have seen them in the 1911s). Am I hoping for something "better"? I can't say that I am; knowing what the market prices are and what CMP described; what I have seen seems to exceed my expectations. I have, after all, seen 1911s in (recent) military service. I don't recall seeing any collector items!

Here's the thing: All on this forum know now what to expect, so when CMP calls wanting that credit card number, you have so been informed. If you post (after this week; clearly some in this thread did not expect what they got ) that you feel betrayed, personally attacked or swindled, don't be offended at the lack of sympathy received.

Apologies if this offended anyone, not my intention at all. If what has been pictured isn't what you want, then simply don't buy it.

For further clarification, John. I would be happy with one less pristine than the SG’s that have been received so far. I remember last winter here and other forums where guys were speculating that these pistols would be junk, not worth the “hoops”, application too hard..etc ad nauseum. Well, here we are and these pistols are definitely not “junk”....LOL
