Remington-Rand M1911A1

Last week, one of our local clients brought in an interesting piece. It's a Remington Rand M1911A1 with a serial number in the low millions (1557218). It's easily 98-99% and has a beautiful finish-- considering it was made in 1944. I urged him to hold off until February to sell it because the anniversary of John Moses Browning's legendary patent on the 1911 will certainly drive prices up in a celebratory manner. Unfortunately, he cannot wait. So, this is a rare opportunity to either pick up this classic pistol in showroom condition or make a short term investment. The client is asking $1700. Here's a link to more pictures of the Remington Rand 1911.

If you're looking for something more modern, perhaps this Springfield Lightweight Operator floats your boat. It's a heck of a bargain at only $981.57 and really well balanced thanks to the lightweight alloy frame. You've got a M1913 Picatinny rail for mounting goodies, Trijicon night sights, and a rugged Springfield AKOTE finish that's not afraid of getting into the drink.

In the world of the 1911, there's something for everyone!

Hope you're all having a good start to your week. Have a good one and God bless.
