Question 0-65 mark.

Ok guys & gals, I have a question about a 1911a1 that someone brought to us to look at. It has on the right side just above the trigger "0-65" electro penciled. Just like the USMC rebuilds on the M1 Garands. Any ideas????? I can find nothing in our books.

Those are the same USMC rebuilds, just not seen a lot. Check with cplnorton, he posted some pictures of an O-68 somewhere. It was marked on the right side above the trigger.

This was the thread in question. He said it appears to be rare, but not definitively USMC.

I got an O-65 SA Garand from the CMP in 2014 and would love to have a matching O-65 1911/1911A1.

Sounds like no big deal. Sell it!

A USMC rebuild would be cool to go with my O-67 HRA.

You need 3 things to have a "0-65" electro penciled 1911.

1. A 1911
2. An electro pencil
3. Poor handwriting

I haven't seen one on a pistol, but the "O-" marked garands that I have seen are generally pretty well done. It is the Springfield etched rebuilds that look like a 1st graders handwriting. A drunk 1st grader.
