The slide could be from anywhere between 1914 to 1945.

An original barrel from your ser # range would not have "Colt .45 Auto" on top like that. It is probably a commercial replacement post-WWII.

Not all original, but a great Colt! Congrats! :)

The slide is original to 1918 “model of 1911” on slide is only produced
Before WW2 before 1911A1’s.

The barrel you could be right I will need to do more research on.

The Trigger and grips are definitely a 1911A1.

This should help. Depends on lug markings.

So my guess: 08/11/2021. That'll be a nice birthday present!

Not surprised but this timeline is probably way off. Of course it assumed I had 1100 in front of me and no gaps in the numbering. It appears they are moving through the numbers at a pretty decent clip. I'm thinking now that my number may be called in the next 4-6 weeks. My new guess is now 06/06/2021.

My first round 1911 Certificate from CMP is dated June 6. Not that it means anything, but I just thought it was kind of cool that it lined up with such a historic day.

Be safe.

I wont have any FFLs. I'd be stationed somewhere, not deployed temporarily.

Well I'm a somebody else that never got a RGN !! and Ali left me message that I have 5 days to get back with her. So I called this Am and talked to her and she said all three grades are good so I took a Rack Grade most of my Garands are Field Grands everyone that they sent I was happy with and this should be the same so if you never got a RGN it might pop up.

Did she tell you what your number was?

So I just got the call today. I was not called or emailed originally to tell me what my RGN was so I was worried something was wrong with my packet. Apparently I had been assigned one I just hadn't been notified for whatever reason. I asked her what my RGN was and she said 20363. I was given all 3 choices and picked Field Grade.

For those who haven't gotten a number just keep your phone close by and hopefully you will get a call soon!

My husband got his RGN of 28681 and was depressed, until I told him this second round of numbering STARTED at 20,000!

Then I explained the first round started a 1, and my RGN was 18601. Took from Sept 2019 to Jan 2021 to get mine.

He was a bit happier, finding out he was actually 10,080 numbers AHEAD of where I had been!
