Hi guys. Long time - no post. I recently came into possession of a Remington Rand with the following markings;
Slide - REMINGTON RAND INC.
SYRACUSE.NY.U.S.A.
Has a "P" on top of the slide in front of the front sight.

Barrel; Left side is marked "P"
Right side is marked "HS"

Frame; Left side is stamped with "FJA" and "P"
Right side is stamped United States Property
No (Capital N small underlined "o") 961XXX
M1911A1 U.S. ARMY
crossed cannon stamp
Magazine is stamped "R" in the spot where I'm accustomed to seeing General Shaver mags stamped with a "G".
My question is - is this gun all Remington Rand? Obviously frame and barrel are but does this logo style (2nd logo?) match the period of the serial number? What about barrel and mag? I know that the hammer is not original but I have a couple of RR hammers that I can replace it with. The BIG downside is that the gun has been refinished, albeit in the most beautiful polished deep blue that I have seen in a long time. Thanks, Tom

Clawson says that the second type slide starts at about 935000 based on the strength of that, I would say the slide would be correct for your pistol. I would say that both the barrel and slide are okay too. As far as the magazine goes I would say it's correct too. R-R was getting them from several sources.
