    You, of course, are entitled to your opinion, but I definitely take offense at the "BS" which implies lying on, presumably, my part. I would be interested in knowing exactly where I "BS'd" in my post. BTW I am talking about something that took place at the Remington Rand plant with a visiting Mexican Naval (Armada) Commission in 1944 which was many years after the Mexican Army (Ejercito - which includes Air Forces) Colt acquisitions. For your information Mexico was very interested in acquiring arms and military weapons shortly before and after the end of WWII. Remington -Rand and others were interested in supplying their products. As I said, these 1911A1s were "salesman's samples" so to speak, and not transfered to Mexico which chose not to buy them. Actual arms transfers and sales to the Mexican Navy after WWII included several naval vessels which were transfered with a full complement of small arms in the racks according to my conversation with Charles Clawson which you seem to think, without a supportable reason, is bogus. I will not reply again and get into an incredibly stupid running argument. Ron
