Description:

Manufactured in 1943, at the height of World War II, this is an early production example of a Remington-Rand 1911A1. The left side of the slide is marked with the correct early style Type I two-line "REMINGTON-RAND SYRACUSE, NEW YORK" address and a "P" on top. The left side of the frame has the "FJA" inspection mark and "P" below the magazine release. The standard U.S. property, serial number, and model designation are marked on the right side. The full blue barrel is marked "G" on the bottom in front of the lug and "COLT 45 AUTO" on the lower left. It is fitted with blade and notch sights, checkered slide release, checkered thumb safety and narrow hammer, short stamped trigger, checkered mainspring housing, checkered Keyes Fiber grips, and a "G" marked full-blue magazine.

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 85% plus of the original Dulite finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina, primarily on the grip straps and in the form of light holster wear on leading edges. The grips are excellent with some mild wear and scattered minor blemishes in the mostly well defined checkering. Mechanically excellent.
