Did you remove the firing pin stop and confirm that the serial number on the slide matches the frame?
Colt stamped slides with serial numbers from s/n 710001 to about 1139xxx. The serial on your frame (902xxx) is in this range.

See "Serial number placement (M1911 and M1911A1)" at this link

Slide stamped 796080

I will get a chance to take it down and get more pictures of the slide and frame this coming weekend. I hope it's in the range you mentioned for a more correct period piece.

Only offered FG and the only thing that differentiates mine from the rest of the fine specimens posted is $100 and an unmarked slide. I must say that this is a better shooting example than most of what was issued while active duty.

Update: Per information found on various websites, to include the official Colt site, this pistol was produced sometime in late 1917. Per the sources used by "thebearpack", this pistol started its military life when it was shipped to the Greenville Piers, NJ on the 21st of January, 1918. After receiving the information supplied by "thebearpack", this pistol has become priceless to my family. I was born on the same date (day and month) that this pistol started its military career, however almost a half century later. The pistol still functions flawlessly at 101+ years old which is much better than I can say for myself at 50+ years of age.

Thank You CMP1911
You have one of the very few examples of a 1911 that receive the 1911 A1 modifications. I really don’t think they did that many. Yours is the second one I’ve seen reported to have been received through the CMP lottery. Congratulations!

Bring me up to speed, when did Mount Rainer have anything to do with the M 1911 A1 ? I have never heard anyone mention it before.
