    Good afternoon. I just put this Reminton Rand pistol on layaway and was wondering if anyone could tell me what the symbol in the below circle is? I have looked everywhere on the internet and couldn't find the answer. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. Also, I have multiple 1911's and...

    Hey gang - I have a colt lower with a Remington Rand upper from the CMP. It is in really great shape. I’d like to get a Colt upper to match my frame - 1943 date. Trade or negotiate, whatever. Anyone interested? Jamo

    I just received my M1911 Field Grade. Colt slide and barrel, Remington Rand Frame. My limited research leads me to believe the gun was manufactured in early 1944. I'm interested to know your opinion is of this gun as well as any additional info you can provide. I've seen a ton a YouTube videos...

    Recently, I acquired a Remington Rand 1911 that was included with a US ARMY Infantry Officer's Field and Travel Kit dated from 1944. The kit had an engraved tag on the front of the case with serial numbers that matched the SN on the handgun. I've never seen anything like this before and was...

    Got this from Grandpa. He got it after the war, but his memory isn’t their about the details. I’d like to know more. From the serial number NO. 132xxxx I know it was made in 1943 and is a type 3. The slide catch and safety are different colors from the rest of the frame, does that mean the gun...

    Hi, fellow gun owners and colt 1911 enthusiast, I have an opportunity to buy a Remington Rand in very solid condition. Based on the information from the seller, it shall be a 1944 production where all parts are from the same manufacturer. Frankly speaking, too good to be true. From what I saw...
  8. USGI/Foreign Military and other Vintage 1911s
    Hello All, New member here and I was hoping for any info about the CMP gun I received. This is my first vintage 1911. I'm doing as much reading as possible but still not sure what some of the markings are, especially the stamp on the right side just behind the top of the grip. Going by the...

    Just acquired a '44 Remington Rand, read a lot before, during, and after but a newbie none the less. Really too much to know not to just jump in a bit and figure it out. I did verify that frame matched the slide and had easily identifiable stamps. So now that I have it apart for inspection...

    Excited to be apart of this forum and wanted to kick off my membership with a post. Here is my "new to me" 1911A1. Earlier last year, I acquired my first 1911A1 through the CMP, and was not impressed. It almost killed the bug in me to start hunting these things down. Luckily, I happened into...

    Hey Folks, I´m about to buy a Remington Rand. From pictures I saw, it´s most likely type 3, despite the seller saying it´s being manufactured in 1942. I´m doubtful if it´s even wartime and if the price around $2200 is worth it. Should not the serial number starts at around 900 XXX? What do...
  12. USGI/Foreign Military and other Vintage 1911s
    I’ve posted photos above. I’ve picked up a RR for a fairly fine price, for Massachusetts, anyway. Serial no. Mid 2million dates it to 1945. All seems tight and right but I didn’t look at it as closely as I would have liked and may have missed some things and I’m fairly new to 1911s to begin...
