No. That quote from the SCSW, read literally, is just plain wrong.

Of the M&Ps produced post-war, which started shipping in Feb. 1946, the earliest several thousands used “left-over” Victory frames.

But then there were something over 180,000 guns with newly made frames and with the MADE IN USA produced until 1948. Nothing left over
