Wow! That's a rack grade? Totally 100% awesome. If you want to trade up to a Field grade, I'll swap you even for my RR/RR 1944.

Any thoughts on the marking?
I was hoping others here on the forum had similar markings but maybe there isnít enough people who got pistols on here to compare. The only thing I know is what member thebearpack shared.

Most likely to the Army Reserve Depot at South Schenectady, NY on either 2/7/19 or 3/3/19

Default Bandelier National Monument (US National Park Service)

BAND could be the acronym for Bandelier National Monument (US National Park Service). The US Army managed many US National Parks before WW11. There is also the "NATIONAL PARK SERVICE MANUAL FOR THE HANDLING AND FIRING OF U.S. M1911 and M1911A1 Colt Automatic Pistol,.45 A.C.P. Caliber" This is just a guess on my part as I can not find any definitive history.

They did, including Yellowstone. If you know where to look you can still see their old firing range that they used for training.

Question related to this... some of the CMP guns have markings from other service branches aside from the Army, correct? As in Marine and Navy markings?
