Remington?

Need comments on this 'Remington Rand' 1911A1 please.

Marked: UNITED STATES PROPERTY NO. 1028xxx M 1911 A1 U.S. ARMY on the right side of the frame. There is also a faint marking just forward of the pin from the safety which resembles the Ordnance Mark - but it is weak.

The left side of the frame has the intials FJA below the rear portion of the slide stop. Rear of the magazine release is an initial which could be a D or P - it is weakly stamped.

Here's the kicker. When the slide stop is removed the frame beneath it is stamped HING LONG NAPA, CA.

The slide is marked REMINGTON RAND, INC. SYRACUSE, N Y. U S A. on the left side.

There are no apparent markings on the barrel.

Comments please - has anyone encountered the HING LONG NAPA, CA before?

Thanks,
Jim

I`ve had one for about 25 years. Paid $200 for it. Someone had it nickle plated and that was old when I bought it. Shoots ball ammo great. I haven`t shot it in a long time as I have other .45`s but if I dust it off and change the recoil spring, I expect it`ll shoot just as good.
