Just bought a RR ser.# 2 040 xxx, and the barrell has been marked 45auto on the left side along with "P", undernease the barrell marked with two letters: big "G" and smaller size "F". I want to know if this an origianal WW2 or postwar replacement.
Any response will be appreciated .

It's a replacement barrel from Colt made after the war. The correct original bbl would be an HS for High Standard.

WTK Rem Rand barrell

Your barrel was originally in a 1943 Colt pistol. The proper barrel for your pistol would be a full blued HS and P marked barrel. Some F marked Flannery barrels were used by Rem Rand, but most F barrels were manafactured replacement barrels.
Can you post photos of your pistol? Does it has circular milling marks on the sides of the slide?
Thanks.
Scott


Sorry, I am not set up for the camera yet, but the slide does have circular milling marks on both sides.
Regards,

Scott is correct, your barrel dates to around early '43 and originally belonged to a Colt pistol.
