Remington Rand 1911a1
I got a phone call from my brother this afternoon who sells guns at a Gander Mountain. He told me a guy came in with what he called a 1911a1 remington rand. I know the gun exists and my brother was well aware of their value. When he sent me a picture of it I couldn't help but notice it was missing the three initials of an armorer approval under the slide release, it didn't have any other ordinance marks. All the ones I've seen had 'property of U.S. Government' on the frames. It did have the 'p' behind the mag release and the slide looked correct.
I told him to be leery of it. Was I right in telling him this or did I mess up a good buy for him?
When I die better bury me deep, two .45s layin' at my feet,
An M16 across my chest, tell Chesty Puller I did my best
