Think I found the website, but not sure for certain. Which "agency" do I select, etc.? I have a couple of pistols I would like to learn the history of.

TIA

I received an email that they have my FOIA request.
'CLASSIFICATION: UNCLASSIFIED
This email is to inform you that LDAC has received your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, received by this office on July 21, 2021, reference number FP-XXXXXXXX.
The request is for ownership history on a Remington Rand M1911A1 serial number XXXX066 and an Ithaca M1911A1 serial number XXXX266.
The DoD Small Arms/Light Weapons Registry history only goes back to 1975 when the Registry was started.

I am not sure what you expect to find out. If it is the unit and or individual the pistols was to which it was issued, I can tell you right now there is over a 99% chance it ain't going to happen.

I don't think anyone expects to know the individual or unit. I found out mine was at the Missouri National Guard for 20 years before being transferred to the Rock Island Arsenal for storage. It gives you an idea where your pistol has been between 1975 and the CMP.

Your asinine facetious comment adds nothing to the topic; perhaps you could have stated something like, what kind of information are you hoping to get?

I am a bit confused with the anger in your response to The Wizard. He was correct in the fact you did not find anything out regarding one of the pistols you asked about. The information you did receive regarding the second pistol just went back to 1989. Your original post did not give any hint on what information you were seeking. I failed to see anything asinine about his response. It may be something all in the eyes of the beholder.
