Default Rack Grade RR

This is my rack grade RR 1911

Looks to be original finish but I honestly have no idea and do not know much about these pistols. Please feel free to give me any opinions.

Now that is one to be proud of. It looks refinished to me. It spent time getting refurbed just a few years after itís birth. Slide and frame are correct to one another. What markings are on the barrel.

The barrel is stamped "HS' on one side and "P" on the other.

The slide has a "P" mark on it as well

Nice. A HS would be correct. Rack grades have turned up some real gems lately.

I can see by the dings and scratches why it was in the "Rack" bin but I think it is a nice pistol with vintage parts.

Like I said in my first post I am far from a 1911 expert but looking at this pistol I think it is all parts from the war and no commercial parts that I can see.

It is much differnent than my Colt 1911 Gov Mod mk IV regarding the trigger pull and slide.

I can only imagine my RR 1911's history... I am proud to own it now as a tribute to the greatest generation...

Old finish but not factory original with those rebuilds.
