Description:

Manufactured in 1944, 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 two-line "REMINGTON-RAND INC./ SYRACUSE, N.Y.U.S.A." address and a "P" on top. The left side of the frame has the "FJA" inspection mark and "P" below the magazine release. There are typical British proofs and released from service markings on the right of the frame and slide. The standard U.S. property, serial number, and model designation are marked on the right side. The refinished replacement barrel is marked "P" and "F" on the lug and has British proofs on the chamber. It is fitted with blade and notch sights, serrated slide release, checkered thumb safety and narrow hammer, short stamped trigger, serrated mainspring housing, checkered Keyes Fiber grips, and a "G" marked full-blue magazine. Includes a reproduction Kraft style box with spurious stamped number matching the gun and a magazine loading tool.

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 98% plus of the original parkerized finish with some very light handling wear and a few scattered light handling marks. The grips are also excellent with only the slightest handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The reproduction box is very fine with some light wear.
