    Ithaca Model 1911A1 862660

    New to me a fairly early Ithaca. Appears all original, HS barrel. On the right side the numbers 114 are stamped. Has anyone seen this before and what could it be? Comments welcome. Dogface6 advised it was shipped to Transportation Officer, Springfield Armory on January 21, 1943. Do any records exist that say where it was sent from Springfield Armory?

    Probably a rack number applied some time in it's past.

    Is the receiver a Colt Model 1911 transferred to Ithaca? I have one a couple of hundred numbers earlier that has the heart shaped cutouts in the grip area. It also has remnants of the UNITED STATES PROPERTY on the left front of the receiver.

    I suspect the shipping info you cite is for a Colt pistol, not your Ithaca. The first Ithaca pistols were not shipped until March 1943. Colt duplicated serial numbers in this serial range.

    Without doing a detailed search of the Ithaca shipping records, it is impossible to say when or where any Ithaca prior to 24 May 1944 was shipped because Ithaca did not ship in strict sequential order prior to that date.

    The 114 was added later, but by whom I don't know. No telling where all the gun has been since it was produced.

    This Ithaca won't have the heart-shaped cutouts, but may have the Colt markings on top of the receiver...just in case you are only looking for the cutouts. A picture of the top of the receiver will tell the story. The finger cutouts remind me of a Colt receiver.

    No heart shape cut outs and no sign of USP mark Johnny.

    Johnny,
    Interestingly, your pistol was shipped in chest 114. I wonder if that's just a coincidence? Maybe his pistol was marked with the chest number for some reason. We'd have to go back and search the records for your pistol and see if his pistol is listed in the same chest.

    I just checked the chest in which Johnny's pistol was shipped and 862660 is not listed there.
