My field grade is nice with no rebuild marks. It has RR frame and colt slide.

My service grade was heavily refurbished. Colt slide with faint markings and Ithaca frame, HS barrel. All matching light silver, dry, parkerized finished similar to the 1970’s Anniston rebuilds. No refurb marks.

The nice thing is that with the CMP COA, you know it came out of Uncle Sam's possession like that, as opposed to an unpapered rebuild that could be a Bubba put-together.

Great observation! I haven't been interested in the CMP pistols until lately. That CMP COA is worth the hassle. I was really miffed why C&R licensed folks like me got a bad deal in this whole process, but I'm getting healed up. Heretofore, I have only purchased pistols from Scott Gahimer whom has my total trust and confidence.

Not all rebuilds were marked! Whats old is new again! Even the Great 1911 45 auto book by Clawson even states that. Its ok. You all have real goverment 45 autos.

I received my Remington Rand 1943 mfg.1911A1 in September. It’s a RR frame and slide with replacement bbl.(85 vintage), pistol has been reparked but no rebuild stamps anywhere. Only stamps I find so far are two “P’s”, one on top of the slide and one below mag release along with the FJA stamp as well as an Ordinance wheel stamp on right side right side between the hammer pin and grip safety pin. I have not had a chance to totally strip and look for other stamps inside pistol but soon! From what I can find on line and comparing that info to what I can see on my pistol, looks to be mostly all correct RR parts. Slide lock is an early RR as it is serrated and “runs uphill” from rear of lock to the front, hammer, grip safety and thumb safety all appear correct and RR mfg. as well.
At first I was a little disappointed there were no rebuild stamps, but the more I read these forums and admire this pistol, the more I come to really appreciate it! Thanks to all the good folks at CMP for their hard work and dedication you folks are the best!

Tried to post a couple of photos but guess I ain’t smart enough. They need to make a copy and paste deal for photos, I can work that!��
