**Remington Rand 1911A1 w/ NRA Box

.45 ACP. 5" barrel length. SN: 2447402. Single-action semi-automatic pistol with removable 7-shot magazine, military lanyard ring, long grip safety, arched mainspring housing, and fixed u-notch and ramp sights. Parkerized metal finish with checkered brown plastic grips. Features checkering to short spur hammer, slide lock, thumb safety, magazine release, and shortened trigger. Markings include Remington Rand two-line manufacturer address to left of slide, and Frank J. Atwood (F.J.A.) inspection mark to left of frame behind trigger guard cutaway. Right side of frame has "UNITED STATES PROPERTY/NO. 2447402" and "M1911A1 U.S. ARMY" marked above trigger guard. Front strap has a piece of mesh-type material fastened under grips for improved grip. This specimen was manufactured sometime in 1945, and is an NRA purchase. Includes original NRA shipping box. 

Condition:

Very good. Bore is bright and rifling is sharp. Finish is all in tact still. There is some surface oxidation to lettering near trigger guard, grooves on arched mainspring housing, and to lower portions of frame. Prolonged use of mesh covering on front strap has caused some finish to wear off and some light surface oxidation.
