Default Our 3 CMP 1911A1s

Top to bottom CMP Service Grade 1942 Colt, 1944 CMP Rack Grade Remington Rand, 1945 CMP Service Grade Remington Rand.

Imgur is acting up and will not let me edit the size of my picture.



The 1942 is mine, the 1944 is mine and the 1945 is my wife's. The person that got the 1944 from the CMP was not really into Milsurps and decided that they just didn't want it.

From what I have been told it is a commercial slide made between 1946 and 1959. The government purchased some of these from Colt for rebuilds sometime after WWII.

1950s USGI contract hard slide supplied by Colt. Early post-WWII Colt USGI contract slides were the commercial sale slide finished in Parkerizing to quickly fulfill Government contract. At that time, Colt was the sole supplier of replacement slides. For later contracts, the 7790314 marking on the slides became standard when Colt no longer the sole-source supplier of 1911 slides.

Thank you for the post Mark I didnít know Colt was the sole supplier on Slides but Clawson & Meadows both wrote that the 7790314 roll marked on the slides started in 1962



Here is a 1952 representation of Dougís slide
