    RS and WB Inspected 1911a1

    I was just doing some searches of RS inspected 1911a1's that have sold and found reference to a 1911a1 in the 750XXX range that had both inspectors (RS and WB) on the same gun. Does any member have one of these they could post pictures of?

    I wonder if you are seeing the WB stamped on top of the frame and the RS under the slide stop or vice versa. Anything
    is possible. Pete

    That is correct. Also suppose to be RS marked Colts with CSR on top of the receiver flat (I have never seen one though). Receivers that had already been inspected and weren't assembled until after the next Executive Officer took command.

    723220 has a CSR provisional inspection and RS final inspection. 750761 has an RS provisional inspection and WB final inspection. Both are shown on my site, but I don't have the images handy to upload here right now.

    The serial ranges where these transitions occurred is pretty small in both cases.
