1918 Colt 1911 Frame rebuilt by SA, hand stamped 1911A1, 1944 Colt slide. ANAD 7/75. HS barrel. Finish a bit worse for wear. Any thing else you can tell by just two pictures?

not really - some folks 'might' be able to from some parts - but your serial number will show the original manufacturer and can be traced to year that way

Then Slide will tell you approx when and who made it

---------
So, it appears that you have the basic information - folks can look up and see approx when it was sent somewhere

The SLIDE appears to be the NOVEMBER '44 variant!!!

AND...

You can research the MSH, hammer, slide stop, & stocks (grips) on COOLGUNSITE.

DDRode, how do you find the age of a slide? I received a 1911 that was made in 1912 but the slide has 1913 patent date on it. Must be a replacement.Both the frame and slide are Colt.

That kinda depends on the particulars of yer shootin' iron...

What it means in your case is that you've got a late WWII (or post WWII) SPRINGFIELD ARMORY build consisting of a late WWI COLT receiver, a late WWII COLT slide, and a mix of A1 parts...that went thru depot level maintenance at ANNISTON ARMY DEPOT in July of '75!!!

There's been quite a few of 'em poppin' up in recent days cuz CMP 1911 is diggin' deep in the ARMY MUSEUM SYSTEM boxes!!!

PS: Looks like she was rode hard and put away wet more'n just a few times between '45 and '75!!!
