    Remington Rand Type II S/N 186xxx

    Good Day,

    I was wondering if the knowledgeable folks on this forum could advice me on the originality of the finish on this Type II RR. Comments and opinions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and Happy new Year!

    Your Remington Rand was buffed and re-finished by parkerizing. The original finish was Dulite Blue.

    Nice gun, but it looks refinished to me.

    Before you start collecting guns buy books. Collect quality not a gun that you'll be forever making excuses for. Learning is impossible without humility.

    A refinish would probably be expected on these, though, right? Did they go through a rebuild after the war?
    I did see a 1911 (NOT A1) at a gun store the other day. Blued finish, flat mainspring, all that good stuff. They wanted $2,500.

    Thing is...I've done lots of these in the past and there's no way to tell. I glass bead blasted them and parkerized them in both black and grey so they looked good. The stampings were still clear and they looked new. People could easily suggest they were unissued or arsenal refinished... I say there's no way to tell when this was done or by whom.
    Regards, Jim

    Jim. The first thing I look at is the OC canons. They were applied after the pistol was blued.....so they should show raw metal. Sometimes you have to tilt them around a bit but the marks always show up.

    A better picture. I took it in the sun room and tilted it around a bit.

    Very correct. It was DuLite and is not now.
