Default Friends Remington Rand rng 2434 received 2-1-19

https://imgur.com/gallery/mnfkZcE

Above is a gallery of the Remington Rand my friend received last week. Slide and frame are Remington Rand the barrel is stamped HS. There are no rebuild stamps on the pistol, it appears to be reparked as the lettering is worn down. Overall he is very pleased with the pistol.

Any comments are appreciated.

Jason

That’s a very nice pistol!! I think most here are hoping for that same delivery...substantially original WW2 pistol that’s been through rebuild.

I there any record of which arsenals would have reworked 1911's and not stamped them? Or is it too much to speculate on such issues? Thanks in advance.

Very Nice WW2 RemRand ! My Colt pistol also has heat treat marked slide from WW2. I like .. but not everyone does. Lots of Re-working went on without any markings at many levels during their service life from what I have read. Pictures are not great but it looks like there may be a number above the trigger guard on the left side . If so that is a rebuild mark . Nice pistol !

Overhaul marks were not defined in Army regulations, so variations may exist depending on the policy of each arsenal."

Most arsenals marked 'em...BUT some didn't!!!

AND...not all repair facility markings are readily recognizable as such!!!

COLT usually stamped a serifed K on the upper right side of the trigger guard, although they also used a five pointed star on either side of the trigger guard of a few pistols!!!

SEE: http://www.coolgunsite.com/pistols/arsenalrebuilds.htm

As to your last question...

Repair/rebuild facilities would disassemble batches of pistols, visually inspect & guage all parts, dx unusable or out of spec parts, salvage usable parts, reparkerize batches of frames, slides & misc small parts, & then assemble complete pistols utilizing in spec salvaged & new parts!!!
