I think this one has been seen before on this forum. Most of us are scratching our heads wondering who put the "M1911 US Army" on the slide. Aside from that, everything else seems to check out as a typical WW2 or later arsenal rework.

This pistol came from an out of the way hunting shop in someones home in the mountain sticks of PA. The gun shop owner told me (for what it's worth) that an elder women came in a month ago to unload her deceased husbands firearms. I bought 2 guns (1911 RR & K98K mauser) & my friend bought an M1 Carbine from this collection.
I thought $400 was a good price for any 1911 or 1911A1 pistol.

What's the scoop on the serial number? I cannot locate what year the RR frame was made in. :scratch:

A few more pictures showing some more markings.

Thanks :)

The serial number on the frame is that of a 1918 Colt mfg. 1911. The R-R slide does not have a sn# and is WW II 1911A1 mfg. The RIA stamp indicates an arsenal rebuild. RIA (Rock Island Arsenal).:)
