    Late WW2 Remington 1911A1

    My Father bought this sometime around 1960 or 61, paid $50.00 for it. I shot it but not much kind of just to try it out. Appears all original but I really do not collect these - I did shot Expert with the M1911A! in the service

    All comments welcome

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Got one just like it, about 1,200 later SN#. Part of an NRA offer in the 60's. $50 sounds cheap but today's money, about $500. Still a steal for an unfired M1911A1. My dad put target sights on it and the front sight was modified. I paid $250 for another unmolested slide two years ago. Sometimes you can find them with the original box. Is the magazine marked with a "G"? If so it was General Shaver co, part of Remington Rand. The RR's were the largest production of WW2 1911's. Find a Singer and the dollars are really going to go up. They are nice shooters. If I recall, there were three different type faces used on the slide. Any WW2 M1911A1 is highly desirable. The CMPicon has a drawing on them for $1,000- 1,250, and none are as nice as that one.
