Default Remington Rand Range Report

I had an opportunity yesterday to shoot my Remington Rand pistol I received from CMP recently. I cleaned and lubed it up before I got started then ran 100 rounds of Winchester white box 230 grain fmj through it. The pistol did great and I did not have any malfunctions using a variety of magazines I had on hand.

These groups were shot at 15 yards two handed hold offhand at the end of the session. They are 7 shot groups coming in around 4-4.5 inches. One thing I noticed was these sights are for young eyes and I had a hard time with my 59 year old eyes! I can’t wait to bench test it with some of my favorite handloads.

If you don't mind me asking, can you tell what the armorers are using for slide lubricant?
The M1911A1 I received was dry as a bone. Not a hint of cosmoline or grease or oil. I inspected mine very closely and there was nothing on the slide or the rails. Some of the other pictures have shown lubricant. That my have been added by the armorers or the recipient.

This is complete fake news. All the CMP internet experts decided long ago that these were shot out rattle traps and not fit to shoot at an innocent target. You must have faked this....

LOL, congrats. Looks awesome!

Has there been any communication that these are received in "ready to fire" condition? I have not seen any.
Assuming they are like CMP these are received as-is; inspected but NOT ready to fire until the owner completes a disassembly, inspection and proper lube.
If they haven't said that, assume it.
It's not rocket science; and these are 75-100 years old.
Use some of the many appropriate oils and greases from the past 100 years and call it done.
Worrying about what the CMP1911 uses is wasted energy; they may very well be using whatever surplus is handy, just like they have at the CMP armory.

Mine was dry except for under grip panels

This pistol was also dry as a bone when I received it. The bore was dirty and appeared to have been functioned fired recently? I have been at this game a long time and am also a gunsmith so rest assured this pistol was disassembled, functioned checked, cleaned and lubed before I fired it; no different from how I treat any firearm when I receive it.

I would urge anyone receiving one of these pistols to check them out extensivley or take them to a gunsmith before firing. Also, use standard velocity factory 230 grain fmj round ball and stay away from +P or hot hand loaded ammunition.

Yes we test fire each pistol before being sent BUT YOU SHOULD HAVE IT CHECKED BY A GUNSMITH.
Printed on the bottom of the 1A Form:
I also acknowledge the pistol which I am applying to purchase is a military surplus arm in used condition and is sold to me strictly “AS IS”, WITH NO WARRANTY EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. I understand:
1. This pistol may not function properly or be safe for me to use in the condition in which I receive it.
2. This pistol is not to be fired until it has been disassembled and cleaned, thoroughly examined by a competent gunsmith familiar with its internal mechanism and safety features, and any unserviceable parts replaced or other deficiencies corrected.
3. The use of ammunition that does not meet U.S. military standards in this pistol can be dangerous.
