When my father passed away, I inherited his RemRand 1911A1. It was his favorite gun, and I grew up admiring, taking apart, and shooting this pistol. I'm interested in finding out more about it in particular. I've visited several websites, and learned much. I believe it was manufactured in 1945 as it has a serial #21475XX series number. It doesn't have the green colored parkerized look...more dark gray. All parts match except the grip safety appears to be blued instead of parkerized. It sure feels great in my hand, and shoots good too. Any info in general from the experts (or anyone else)will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
