Default After 2 years +

I picked up my pistol this morning after a long wait for my number 18349 to come up. Chose a service grade and it is a great looking pistol. RR frame and IMI replacement slide. There are no arsenal markings, everything on the frame seems proper for a 1944 RR. Dark park and everything is in excellent condition.

Default Service Grade Remington Rand

01-05-2021 just picked up my pistol. Remington Rand with Colt slide. I love it. RGN 18593. A few scratches but looks like honest wear and does not appear to have been thru arsenal rework to me. No markings I can see anyway. Better than any I had in 20 years in the Corps. I'm very happy!!!!

I tried to keep my expectations in check, and I'm not dissapointed one bit. Colt frame, SN 1713972, GHD inspected, looks like all stamps and SN are sharp, except for Ordanance crossed cannons that are faint. Looks consistent with Parko-Lubrite for a late 1944 Colt. Mainspring housing is checkered like an earlier Colt, hammer and safety are checkered, slide stop is serrated. Remington Rand slide (third type) and a replacement barrel (1990).

Picked this up today. RGN 18441. A little disappointed by the TZ slide but otherwise seems to be a nice 1943 Colt with original finish and barrel? Iím very new to the 1911a1 and comments welcome. Soon I will take some time and figure out what I have. Nice to finally have it in hand - a good shooter at a minimum.

Default Looks like mine

I got my pistol just before Christmas.I have a IMI replacement slide. It's on a RR frame. I was initially disappointed with the missmatch, but it has really grown on me. Great shooter and with solid slide. All part of it's journey through history. I'll probably shoot it more than I p!anned.

Picked up my Field Grade with a Colt frame & Ithaca slide. Frame is in nice condition, heavily bead blasted and refinished at some point. Slide is heavily pitted and blasted over but knew that was a possibility going in. Hindsight always being 20/20 I should have opted for a Service Grade or auction gun. RNG 18657

Default 2+ Year Wait

October 1944 Colt Frame. Thanks to thebearpack for shipment info. USGI IMI Replacement Slide. Colt Replacement Barrel. It appears to have been rebuilt in the 1980's, based on my reading of this forum, and it's markings. (1984 IMI Contract for 18,000 replacement slides). The pistol is in excellent working order. Tight & solid. Recoil Spring measures 6 1/4" Mec Gar magazine. The whole upper appears to be new parts. There were traces of brass on the breach face, which appears to be from a test fire. No real carbon fouling when I punched the bore. There is no visible wear on the working surfaces.

I still have a question about the replacement barrel. Colt made? When was it made?

I'm looking forward to shooting it.
