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 just bought one of these yesterday evening when I happened upon it at a local gun shop. I have been looking at a lot of different 1911s for a shooter and couldn't pass it up for $450. I will be curious to learn more about it so I will get the #s and post them later.

Well according to the gun shop I got mine from this gun is all original but has been refinished in blue. The S/N is a 165xxxx so that would make it a 1943 model if I am not mistaken. Now I just have to wait until the 12th to pick it up. What is this gun worth since it's been refinished? It is in very good condition.
