My first 1911

Hallo all
I’m new on this forum but I read a lot of threads by long ago.
Finally, I’m very proud to have at home my first USGI 1911A1.
I love and collect 1911, but in Italy it’s very difficult to find collectibles military 1911A1: just guns in really bad conditions or (presumed) mint at Rockfeller price… So, today I’m very happy… Naturally, this is not the gun of the century, just an honest RR in good condition with a friendly price…
Well, 1944 Remington Rand, # 2000XXX, I think it’s all correct except slide stop (checkered), barrel HS, correct proof marks, FJA at right place, keyes fibre grips, "G" near the disconnector hole. Others markings are correct in position and style…
Frame was probably reparkerized (I think), but finish seems similar to the original… slide is completely original, as well as the barrel.
The gun came in Italy so long ago, probably imported from an Italian officer (a present for him?) and was stocked in Italian military arsenal in Terni…
I have some doubt for trigger, thumb safety and slide stop (they are darker than the rest of parts) and the magazine, marked “B” (?)…
Thanks for your opinions
I will send a couple of pics as possible.
p.s.
excuse me for mistakes in english language…
