Rec'd one with "23" etched on the lower edge of both grips. I'm assuming they are rack numbers.



Sorry I can't post pix anymore but I could email them to someone if they want to post them.

My 1945 CMP Remington Rand had the rack number stamped in the frame.

When I received "the call" (RNG 9931) I was only offered Field or Rack grades. The FFL told us it was not as nice as our first one, so I was disappointed, but after seeing and examining the gun, I couldn't be happier. Thank you CMP. We never thought we would be fortunate enough to own a piece of military history, let alone two of them.
Awesome!

Interestingly enough, my magazine has what looks like scratched out rack or inventory numbers on it. Only very faint now, but cool none the less.

My 1943 Ithaca (RR slide) has a yellow 50 painted on the right side frame opposite the safety. I'll spend the rest of my life making sure it stays intact while cleaning it!

Sorta related, my 1943 Garand has a 54 stamped into the wood on the base of the grip, AND a Dymo 54 label stuck over the stamp. Seems like anything goes for rack numbers!

this is true - in the units I was in - we had dymo stickers on many weapons and I was in units that we had painted numbers on the grips and units that we didn't do that at all.

The larger the unit, the more you have to try to keep things in order.

Every day we did a number count - once a month, a designated officer (sometimes senior NCO) did a actual serial number inspection and count of everything in the arms room.
