    1911 Barrel Marking

    I examined a commercial Government Model today whose serial number puts it at 1924 manufacture. Everything appears to be original, but the barrel has no visible markings.

    I honestly can not understand where people are getting the idea the letters are not stamped based on the pictures I posted. If nothing else, two things should stand out:

    I don't doubt your expertise, and I appreciate your opinion, but I have examined it several times very closely and believe it is a stamping. We'll just have to agree to disagree.

    DS with interesting marking

    I acquired this gun a few years ago and have wondered about it since.
