    CMP Pistol sharing

    I didn’t want to hijack Foxdoublegunner’s post about his CMP Pistol so I am putting my last post here and continuing.

Has checkered MSH, trigger that I am sure of and maybe the mag release. The slide stop is more blue than parked and is serrated instead of checkered so I don’t think that is correct. This is all at first glance at the LGS. I don’t have it here in bed with me as I write this so I’m going off memory. It did come in a nice pelican type case with foam and all the usual stuff. I haven’t broken it down for a more in-depth look but may do so tomorrow and post some photos. Btw my RNG number was 3894.

    I think I’m pretty lucky to have gotten this as it is very much, by my research, matching. I’ve been seeing on other forums that others have been getting the “frankengun” variety.

    FYI- in whatever configuration you got this, it was 'all correct', since that was the way it was rebuilt and refinished.

    No attempt was made to keep individual weapons together - they were stripped, inspected and sent on to be refinished and marked, then either stored or shipped to a gaining unit.

    I had an entire circular rack of these, and also had M3A1s and M2s - same depot - same color.

    All worked well...

    From the weakness of the lettering it appears to have been through multiple rebuilds. As df6 indicated, no attempt was made to keep original parts together during rebuild, so matching slides and receivers are just happen chance.

    The faintness of the lettering is what I noticed first as I picked it up. Expected. Remington Rand slide and frame was a big thing for me. Additional correct parts was the bonus. Not sure if I would be happy with it otherwise. Definitely a shooter/ beater if that was the case but now maybe a shooter. Very happy, nonetheless.

    Glad you got one you are happy with. A lot of guys expected to get matching frame and slide and instead got mix-masters. I was lucky enough to get a matching 43 Colt which is what I wanted but I would have been happy with anything.

    Most of the 1943 Colts had matching serial numbered slides. Did you get one with a matching numbered slide?
