1943 Remington Rand M1911A1
Government NM Parts Rework


This 1943 Remington Rand is fitted with USGI national match parts. The fit and finish is excellent with the hammer dropping around 4 pounds and the slide nicely fitted to the frame.  All parts on this gun are USGI national match parts. The slide is a 1942 Colt on a 1943 Remington Rand receiver. It shoots just as good if not better then any of the high end 1911s you can buy on the market today. Configuration is identical to a 1962-63 SA National Match pistol minus the stampings, right down to the barrel link, modified sear spring, and modified hammer! Quiz time - Why do I say 62-63 and not 1962 or 1963? Look closely at the images and the the characteristics chart which I have a link to below. Click on images to see a larger version.

You know its not a SA National Match because:
1) No "SA" and "NM" stamp
2) No "US" stamp on rear sight
3) No serial number on barrel and bushing ( last four numbers on it), just National Match part numbers
4) Number on slide does not match last four serial numbers on frame
