Manufactured in 1944, at the height of World War II. The left side of the slide is marked with the standard two-line Remington-Rand address and a "P" on top. The left side of the frame has the "FJA" inspection mark, "4" on the trigger guard, and "P" below the magazine release. The standard U.S. property, serial number, and model designation are marked on the right side, with "Z" and "V" on the trigger guard. The full blue barrel is marked "F" and "P" on the lug. 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 an unmarked parkerized magazine. Includes a U.S. Harpham Bros. leather holster, U.S. canvas dual magazine pouch, and two extra magazines. Provenance: The Paul Crockett Jr. Collection
Very fine, retains 85% plus of the original parkerized finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina, primarily on edges and the grip straps, and a few scattered small patches of dark brown patina. The grips are excellent with a few scattered light blemishes in the otherwise crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The holster and magazine pouch are very fine with some light wear.
