My cmp rem rand came with a colt slide. Anniston rebuild 4/78. Would you be interested in trading slides?

got my gun today dissembled it and oiled it up

was the heat treatment done in 1943 or during a rebuild?
who made my barrel?
any other parts anyone can ID ?
i assume my mag is new production 1980s?
couldnt get 1 grip screw off!....not without damaging the screw, but looks like 1 original grip, 1 new production?


smooth/nice trigger...almost flawless...

The barrel is a post 1968 standard USGI replacement barrel. It most likely is chrome lined. The M indicates the barrel was magnafluxed (magnetic tested), and the P is the normal Proof Mark found on USGI barrels. The 7791193 is the Ord. Dept. Part #. If it were an NM barrel it would be marked on the chamber hood .45 AUTO (over) NM 7991414 by mfr. 73677. The 73677 is a CAGE # for the manufacturer. The manufacture is Duroyd Mfg. Co. Inc. of NY. I have a few of those barrels still in the wrapper, they are 1979 -80 mfg. and there was about 55,000 or so made for the DOD under contract, and the ones I have are chrome lined. The NM barrels were made as replacements and were post 1974. (All the post 1968 NM replacement barrels marked NM 7791414 were based on the original design used in '63 - '65 on the USGI NM Pistols)


SEE: http://www.coolgunsite.com/pistols/grips_stocks.htm for info re the grips!!!

SEE: https://forum.m1911.org/showthread.p...Identification

CHECKMATE (1M291) has manufactured magazines since the 70s!!!

SEE: https://www.armyproperty.com/manufacturer/1M291

All heat treating took place during the manufacturing process...not during arsenal rebuilding!!!

took my 1911 out to the range today..both targets are at 15 yards. the head shot is crouching and resting my hands on a bench....ammo is cheap stuff...very pleased with its accuracy. shoots a bit high....those sight are small for old eyes

trigger was a bit heavy for todays 1911's.....i hear its 6 lbs..maybe a bit more....it was very,very smooth and not meant to be a target trigger...the gun really feels nice in the hand..smooth compared to my modern 1911 which is over textured to the point of pain

mag was a big problem though...so tight it jammed on almost every round..had trouble loading round #7 into it....when i got home i tossed a new mag into it and cycled it...perfection...then i excersized the cmp mag 100-150 times and tested it...seemed to work much better...i had oiled it at the range and it didnt help...it needed to scrape itself smooth.

anyone else have mag issues? mag appears to be 1980's production
