Seller's Description

Guns For Sale - US Army WWII Remington Rand -- Model 1911-A1, .45 ACP Semi Auto Pistol - C&R OK

LSB#: 110713WH1

Make: Remington Rand

Model: 1911-A1

Serial Number: 912556 (Probably an Ithaca Frame)

Year of Manufacture: 1943

Caliber: .45 ACP

Action Type: Semi Auto Pistol, Single Action

Markings: The left side of the slide is marked "Remington Rand Inc. / Syracuse, N.Y. U.S.A.". The left side of the frame is marked "AA / FJA / P". The right side of the frame is marked with the Springfield Crossed Cannons and then "United States Property / No 912556 / M 1911 A1 U.S. Army". The right trigger guard bow is marked with a "1" and the left is marked with what looks like a "Y". The barrel is marked with an "HS" and a "P".

Barrel Length: 5"

Sights / Optics: The gun is mounted with standard 1911-A1 sights. The front is a fixed ramp and the rear is set in a dovetail.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stock(s) is/are checkered plastic. The grips are reasonably sharp though warn and free of cracks or losses.

Type of Finish: Parkerized

Finish Originality: As Arsenal Reapplied

Bore Condition: The rifling is bright and sharp, with just the slightest bit of fouling. There is no erosion.

Overall Condition: This gun retains about 85% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows primarily storage wear. The right side of the slide and the lower right side of the frame show some finish loss and surface marking, certianly from poor storage. The gun otherwise shows light finish wear to the edges, slight aging but no pitting, erosion or surface rust. If stored a more properly, the gun would rate considerable better. The Screw heads are sharp, showing only a few turnings. The markings are clear. Overall, this gun rates in about very good - fine condition.

Mechanics: The action functions well though we did not test fire this gun.

Box & Accessories: None. One unmarked blued magazine is included.

Our Assessment: This gun practically won WWII for the US. This is an example of the greatest sidearm ever carried by a world power's military. To this day, no more reliable, stronger, or robust pistol has been designed and our troops still carry itterations of the 1911. This gun shows the acceptance, inspection and arsenal markings. The frame is likely an Ithaca, as inspected by FJA and then returned to Agusta Arsenal for a rebuild, at which time it was matched to its Hi Standard barrel and Remington Rand slide. This is just a good honest example of a WWII 1911-A1, as rebuilt by one of the US Arsenals.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This gun can be sold in California, as C&R handguns are exempt from the Roster. This gun is not available for a private party transfer. This does no apply to out of state buyers.
