I checked everywhere on the gun for the Brazil marking and no luck, this includes the underside of the dustcover. I then asked the shop owner if has another one of the same model. He brought 3 additional guns out and I checked all 3 and guess what 2 has no Brazil marking and one has the FI, Brazil marking under the dust cover. Confusing Ah !
went back to the shop on Saturday, no luck, owner would not let me take the right stock off becasue it's a new gun. So, I don't know if it's stamped or not. Maybe gypc_c is right that all SA guns are imported from Brazil even without the stamp mark. I wished all the SAs were made in USA.
I just took the grips of my SS loaded 1911A1
and there is no markings on either side of the grips stating made in Brazil. On my last Loaded 1911A1 the Brazil markings was on the dust cover. On the left side of the frame under the grip, there is another set of #'s 03xxxM no idea what these are for. They don't coincide with the ser#
You're sweatin' the wrong things guys...These are nice pistols...Sll of the custom smiths like to work on SAs for custom guns...That should tell you somethin'. If they prefer SAs to some of the others, then no matter what, they have to be ok, or these guys wouldn't put their names on 'em...Relax and go forth...spread the 230gr word...pop the caps of righteousness!
