As far as I know, they generally didn't keep detailed records of which firearm went to a particular unit, just where the gun was shipped from the manufacturer. Occasionally SRS turns up a record of which gun went where. If you are a subscriber to their service, you can send them a email request and they will search their records for further information.

I have a 1917 Colt 1911 that I was able to find out via Clawson went to the C/O Philippine Ordnance Depot on April 18, 1917 and a 1918 Colt 1911 that shipped to the C/O Springfield Armory on March 28, 1918. However from there the trail grows cold and I haven't been able to find where they went from there.
