Default Rem-Rand Service Grade

I picked up my pistol today. It is a Remington-Rand frame with a Colt GI replacement slide. SA rebuild. Barrel is a replacement and looks new. The overall refinished/rebuilt condition is excellent in my opinion. As with most folks, I was hoping for a matching frame and slide but that's asking a lot with rebuilt pistols. I see some got the match and I'm happy for them.

It was dry as camel bones in the Sahara but got an oiling for the photos.

I was hesitant when I got the call trying to decide whether to go service or field grade. After seeing some of the field grades I sorta/kinda wish I had gone with a field grade.
If my wife's number was close I'd suggest her going with a FG but she drew #18398 so she has a ways to go.

Overall, I must say I am well pleased with my pistol. It will fit in well with my other 1911s.
