It has printed on the frame right hand side

IT HAS ON SLIDE IN LARGE LETTERS S&S

Hello Ram....
Still need more information. So far, we can tell you that you have a Union Switch & Signal WWII slide, but on top of what? Can't tell you anymore unless we have the serial number and the inspectors initials just aft and below the slide release. Should see either FJA or RCD within a circle (RCD only). Give us your serial number, and substitute "XX" for the last two numbers and we'll be able to answer more questions. What does the finish look like? What other stamped markings are there? What do the grips look like? Are they wood or brown plastic? Does the frame have a lanyard loop? The more info, the better.
Regards,
Sam

Hello Ram...

1945 Remington Rand goes with the serial number.

Dsk... Did they make any 1945 US&S with an overlap in serial numbers with Remington Rand?

Regards,
Sam

RAM....
What that means is your pistol was only accepted on a partial basis.
Just kidding! Look up at the chart that dsk posted and you'll see the mark and it's description.

Doesn't change what you have. A Remington frame with a US&S slide.

Don't worry about it. I have a 1918 Colt frame with a 1912-13 Springfield Armory slide put together by Springfield in 1918 when all of the parts were shipped to Springfield near the end of WWI. Then it was later arsenal refinished. Still a neat pistol. Got it in trade for a S&W Victory model.

Regards,
Sam
