I was in the Ranger Hall of Fame and a Member of Merrill's Marauders had donated his Remington UMC 1911 to the RHOF.

This was his sidearm during his time with the Marauders in the Burma theater as their heavy machine gun platoon leader.

Talk about a sense of history emanating from that old 1911.

Now I have to go find an old warhorse for myself.

I finally understand guys. Thanks.

Now that must be a sight. If only that firearm could talk. Would love to be able to hear the stories it would tell.

A lot of people don't realize the older WW1 1911s were more commonplace in the war zones than the newer M1911A1s up until around mid-1943 or so, when production finally caught up with demand.
