Here we have a Union Switch and Signal M1911A1 , frame stamped with inspection initials “R.C.D.” in circle on left side of frame. This US & S pistol was fitted with a Colt slide which his historically correct, as during WW2 some of the US &S slides developed cracks due to improper heat treatment. Finish is dull gray-black Du-lite bluing over sandblast. Barrel and bore in great shape. Magazine appears to an original old Colt. Trigger, hammer, slide lock, safety tab and magazine release button are checkered. Stocks appear to be “Keys” small ring grips. I am not an expert on WWII 1911’s but I have researched all vital facts from Carpenter’s book on Union Switch and signal M1911A1 and everything appears to be correct. This rare relic would make a nice addition to your WWII collection as well as a good solid shooting pistol.
