I had a WWI (1917) M1911 that was first rebuilt by RIA, and then by Anniston Army Depot (1975).

It had been milled for the finger reliefs on the frame, and was essentially an M1911A1.

It came to me with a S&W barrel and a 1960's Colt QAP slide - with that odd, light grey Parkerizing and a set of Keyes plastic grips.

I figure that the machining for the finger reliefs was done during the Depression, to keep a reasonably-sized workforce gainfully employed at the Arsenals.
