    CMP Round 3 Service Grade 1911

    I sat out Round 1 & 2 but was impressed enough from what I saw I decided to participate in Round 3 even with the price increase.

    Sent my packet in September 1st and received my RGN email on October 3rd. I received a call from CMP on October 5th and requested a Service Grade. I received a ship notice email on October 6th and picked it up from my local FFL on October 7th. Based on what I was seeing from Round 1 & 2, Round 3 is moving along quite swiftly.

    The serial number indicates a RR frame and it has a Colt slide. The barrel appears to be a 1985 replacement. Otherwise, I couldn't tell you how "correct" the other parts may or may not be, but it is in very nice condition.

    I have purchased about a dozen rifles through the CMP in the past 20 years and have never been disappointed, the 1911 program did not disappoint either.

    Beautiful pistol. How accurate is it?

    As I noted above, my CMP Round 3 M1911 came with Remington Rand lower and Colt slide. Since these CMP guns are basically parts guns anyway I decided to see if I could find a nice Remington Rand slide to mate with my lower, hoping I could horse trade my Colt upper with someone who had the inverse of what I had. After a week or so I came across a guy that, sure enough, had a Colt frame and a nice RR slide who was also looking for a slide trade. We compared slides and turns out we each had what the other needed, so a handshake later we made the trade.

    After checking my references, after swapping out the replacement barrel with a WWII HS marked one, I'm pretty sure I have a complete WWII era Remington Rand.

    Congrats on your trade. Glad your gun is now complete as it should be.
