I have a 1917 Colt Frame, trying to find a correct early slide with a parkerized finish. But not in a hurry.

My dad was able to swap his Ithaca Frame / Colt slide to the correct Ithaca slide with a face to face meeting with another CMP buyer. I then bought a RR slide to correct my wife’s RR frame. We kept the replacement slide that came off it

Just a thought...
If you are interested in selling the Colt slide..I would like to look at it. I have a Colt frame with a replacement GI slide.

For those of you who don't check in on my other thread, I think we got our first match this morning! If it's true, it was worth all the work. I'd love to see a FOIA on both guns too get some more history on them.

Both parties have been messaged. Where it goes from there is on them

That match was for Colt frame 2260198 and Colt slide 883675...did they even number slides in the 2 millions? I don't have a need to sell or match as the service grade I received is in pretty nice condition. 1943 slide on a 1945 1911 works great for me.

Hmmmm I think late 43 the practice of numbering slides at Colt stopped so this would be for Colt 883675

I received service grade Colt frame 883675 with a post 1943 un-numbered slide. I too am very happy with the condition and don't feel the need to try and match the slide. Even if I did want to match it wouldn't fix the replacement Safety, MS housing and barrel. I feel like I am in this pistol deep enough.

As a side note the pistol was tagged as a Ithaca frame but as soon as I looked at it I saw the S/N font, GHD inspecter stamp and the G on the top of the frame I knew it was one of the pistols that Colt duplicated the S/N on in 1943.
