Default M1911 Field (what have I got here?)

Sorry, don't know why the pics are so huge.


Completely green-newb to 1911s but was lucky enough to get this from the auction last month. Kinda bummed the "property of US Army" Stamped is faded or refurbed out of legibility. Can anyone tell me what I have here? Year? Colt slide, Rem Rand Frame? I can field strip for more parts IDs. How do you get a FOIA history? I've seen postings about FOIA but they all start around the mid 90s

The pictures are huge because this site is Antiquated and unlike ar15.com or Facebook it doesn't automatically resize them to something compatible with the rest of the page. You have to reduce them in a separate app of some sort and then post the little pictures.
Nice field grade

You have a nice 1911a1. It has a 'replacement' slide, they are harder slides and were used for a long time, so its military replacement.
I'd have to get the sn and look it up, but can't right now. Check coolgunsite.com - they have a sheet on serial numbers

It's an SA rebuilt RR frame with a post war Colt GI replacement slide.

Serial # dates frame to late 1943. Probably December.
