CMP 1911A1 COLT/REM 1945 WWII
I was fortunate having the opportunity to purchase this very fine firearm from CMP by lottery but it turns out to be similar to one already in my collection. It was not purchased to “flip”. If one were to look superficially at this pistol you would believe it to be a Colt 1911A1 because the slide is Colt, the stocks are accurate Coltwood type 7 with the large ring around the screws, the barrel is marked “Colt 45 Auto” and the finish is impeccably perfect parkerized with blue over sandblast for the small parts- very accurate. However, looking deeper with examination of the serial number one finds the receiver is Remington Rand 1945. The interior parts are mostly Remington. The barrel marking is modern Colt, looks fairly new with bright strong lands. Judging from the two tone tip of the Colt slide I place the Colt slide at about 1938. The two tone resulted from a hardening/strengthening of metal process- a good thing. The mag is a very high quality Italian made modern mag. The CMP gun case is a work of art in itself. See photos. The pistol will come with everything in the case sans my name. So, what you will be purchasing is a 1911A1 which all of your friends will believe is a beautiful Colt but you will know better. I’m pricing this pistol at a price considering my work and effort submitting necessary stuff to CMP, waiting over a year for success, getting it through state hoops, my purchase price, transfer costs and angst dealing with all of this stuff.
