Randall Firearms

I’m trying to find out more about my Randall .45 Service Model. It has an odd serial number 02718B and I haven’t seen anything like it. I’ve tried to contact Rick K since 2016 and no response. Can anyone help me. I’ll be happy to send pictures. Thank you. DMoon

Randall has been out of business for a long time.

Thank you Scorch. I’m well aware that Randall has been out of business since 1985.

And Thank you Double K, I have that info. The problem is My serial number doesn’t follow any of the explanations of Randall’s numbering system which is why I’m looking for more info. I’m looking for someone that knows a lot about these guns that might be able to explain why it’s so different . Was it a regular run? A goof? A special run of .45’s? I want to pass this on to my son and would like to be able to give him some history to go with it.

Got some pictures of it? I have friend who's an older guy who might have some information but he's not really good with computers.
