the # 430947 was assigned to Colt in WWI and shipped in Sept 1918. I take it the slide is a Remington Rand? any chance of pictures, especially a close up of the ser nr? lee

Remington Rands are the most common of the WWII M1911A1s and typically sell for less than those made by other manufacturers (Ithaca, Union Switch & Signal, and Colt, plus a very few by Singer}. Be aware that many of the WWII pistols were arsenal rebuilt and the serial number and manufacturer of the frame may not match the manufacturer of the slide, and I believe that is the case for your frame. It was not made by R-R, but was made during WWI by Colt. You have a mismatched parts gun combining a WWI Colt frame with a WWII R-R slide.

Does it have any letters on it anywhere, like AA for Augusta Arsenal, indicating a WW II rebuild?
