Is it a new acquisition? What's the story behind it?

I’m in the process of legally transferring it now. It is a gift to me, which I can’t believe. I don’t know its personal history pre 1980 when it was sold at a gun show. Remington-Rand made their last run in 1945. They began production in 1942 with the idea that all their parts could be interchangeable. They had some issues and shut down production to retool. In 1943 they began production again which lead to some of the finest 1911’s produced. Things to look for are a “P” on the slide and frame. The initials ”FJA” for Frank J. Atwood“ the chief inspector are near the slide release, and a “HS” on the barrel. Judging by the barrel, it wasn’t fired much. All were property of the US and issued to GI’s.

you can see how new the barrel looks.

Sweet, like 1911s but John Browning perfected the design with the Browning High Power (had to put that in to stir the pot...)
