Colt Frame with Remington Rand Slide

Hello everyone, I just got this M1911A1 apparently from the WWII. After I got it (for a good price) I dug into it, and found some irregularities with it. The frame appears to be a Colt from 1942 o 1943, and the Slide is definitively a Remington Rand.

The funny part about it id that the serial number is almost erased and there is a "104" stamped over the original serial number. On the first place I thought that someone down the road alterated the numbers on purpose, but after doing some research I found out that my gun could be a "Rebuild".

The funny part about it is that I can't find any Depot or Armory stampings regarding the rebuild, unless the "104" is actually the rebuild stamping.

So here I am, with the experts. I attached some pics...
