BaconFarms, back to your original question. RR made their own slides. You have the third type marking on your slide. Any surplus could have been used to rebuild 45s. Also as an armorer we always salvaged parts that were within specification and removed bad parts from service. My guess is that someone just picked a serviceable slide that happened to be a RR. Bottom line, you have a nice 1911A1.

What does the "X" stamp tell us?

Good question. Hadn't seen that on a RR. It could be an assembler or an inspection mark. Doubtful it was applied in the 1940's.

It's a Rem Rand factory assembler's mark. Not always X obviously, but other letters are seen there after around 1,300,000.

Here's a factory original I used to own with a C in that spot:
