Lightbulb 1911 Value & ID Help...

I dropped in the local pawnshop this afternoon and noticed a 1911 in the case. After taking a few photos and really looking at it, the serial number range coupled with that slide really started to throw me off. Am I missing something here? The slide is RR, but the frame is serial No.520,421.

I am certainly no expert when it comes to these, but I know this board can steer me in the right direction on ID and value.

Thanks for the help.

Basically a 1918 (as per coolgunsite) Colt bottom and a 1943-45 Rem Rand slide. Can't speak for the barrel & internals, but its an average-condition mixmaster. Just my opinion, but its about 1K overpriced.

I'd be fine with this if it had legit rebuild marks on it. But even if it had that they are WAY too high.

It did have some kind of marking/stamp above the mag release. I should have taken a better photo.

It's a 1919 COLT receiver mated to a REMINGTON RAND Type 3 slide!!!

Barrel appears to be a replacement barrel...can't really tell much about it!!!

The magazine is a WWII Colt - Risdon.

Overpriced by at least $800.00!!!

Thanks for the info and confirming my assumptions, guys.


I'm going to stop by the shop come Monday and see if I can whittle on him a bit. Seems like the most of you agree $1,200-$1,400 seems fair.


Details to follow.

It does, right over the front of the trigger guard.

Nice catch! This aided in my decision to bring'er home. I ended up paying $1,290+tax. It was certainly a little more than what I would have liked, but it seemed fair and was well below sticker.

There is indeed an Augusta Arsenal rebuild mark on the left and a 1st type ordnance department eagle with "S2" underneath. I'll share some field strip pictures with y'all tomorrow night. Again, thanks to all who commented on the thread. Kudos.
