I like the look!!
Yes, Coolgunsite is good.
Apparently, this style of Stock Cut (of this 28 row walnut) started in Mid-1940 and continued until the walnut stocks were phased out in 1941 (for the M1911A1). (Most likely, not a lot of these stocks were made. ?)
Most likely, these Stocks were also used with the (rare) 1942 assembled Government Model Pistols (and those 1941 GMs assembled after the walnut stocks were phased out with the M1911A1). (AFAIK, all the 1942 assembled GM Pistols had walnut stocks.)

The Pretty Parts Pistol:
Has an easily identified Military Receiver from the 1920s. The hammer, grip safety, main spring housing, and mag release look like they could be original to the receiver.
The slide is easily identified as a Military Slide from one year in the 1930s. (Most likely, there are two versions of this slide for that year ?) The Slide Stop and Thumb Safety could be from the 1920s, 30s, or 40s. (Thumb Safety might date to the late 1910s.)
The stocks look like they are 28 row from the range, Mid-1940 up to about 730000 in 1941 (military) or through 1942 (commercial).
And it has a Commercial Two-Tone Magazine from about 1917 up to about 1933/34. (So, this Pistol could be a P-3 from the 1910s, 20s, 30s, and 40s !)

This is the version of the slide.
