Germany did have the rights to build 1911a1 before 1939. Not many were made is my understanding.

NAH...

NAZI GERMANY was never licensed...the NORWEGIANS were!!!

SEE: https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/20...olt-nazi-1911/

The suspected HK (HEC) replacement barrel in question is marked M & P (Magnafluxed & Proofed)...most likely produced in the 70s or 80s by HK (if HEC is indeed HK)!!!

For what it's worth, Heavy Engineering Corporation (HEC) of Ranchi, India makes large gun barrels. I have no idea if they make small arms barrels.

I haven't yet received a reply from my email to HK about this.
I'm curious if I'll get the same reply. Might depend on who responds to your message.
Did HK really never make these, or are the records just hard to find or no longer existing?

I'm not disappointed if they didn't make my barrel, just want to figure out who did.

Apparently there weren't many of these barrels made.
Maybe there were only a few made on a trial run, but no further orders placed.

I'm very surprised that so far no one knows for sure and no one else has piped up in this thread to say that they too have one like it.

I'm thinkin' "HK did not make any 1911 barrels" don't leave a helluva lotta room for doubt!!!

I consider it CASE CLOSED on the HK connection!!!

Hopefully you'll solve the mystery one fine day!!!

As wild as that sounds, could very well be.

Much more likely that HEC is hidden in plain sight somewhere in this CAGE list!!!
