Default REM-UMC 1911A1 and 1911

Difference condition makes: I paid less than $1500 for the all REM-UMC 1911A1 that was parkerized at the arsenal. The 1911 REM-UMC was produced by Doug Turnbull as a reproduction. if legitimate, however, in that condition it would be worth north of $6,000.

Rem umc never made an A1 !
Only about 25 thousand 1911’s in World War One.
Remington Rand the unrelated typewriter company made A1’s, but never made 1911’s

No they didnít but the arsenals that were used took the Rem-UMC 1911s & parkerized them, like they did Springfield Armory & Colt 1911s. You might want to pull your Clawson book out & read it again. If you donít have one I think you might be able to find one for a little north of $500.

Hard to tell by the pic, but does the Turnbull pistol on the right have the A1 trigger guard mod where they rounded over the rear part of the frame, just forward of the mag release button? Verrrrry nice pieces, BTW. This post reminded me I have one of the last pistols Bill Adair restored before he passed. All original 62,XXX Colt that looks like the Turnbull job.

You are correct 218bee. You know I had never noticed that before. I guess done to keep folks from trying to pass it off as legitimate.

True but being rebuilt or refinished does not make a WWI era Rem- UMC An A1 which youíre original post states
