Sounds like a replacement frame done at Springfield Armory between 1925 and 1953. (Clawson's Collector's Guide, page 146)

...or it could be a totally bogus frame made up by Bubba to appear to be a Springfield Arsenal renumber. As Denis said... pictures are needed! (Lots of pictures detailing the markings.)

He posted 2 the same day with the same title. First had pix attached. The frame was roughly converted to look like a 1911A1, serial number looked like it was applied by a drunken sailor, US Property follwed the curve of the frame. He was advised to reverse the trade or disassemble and turn in the frame to ATF. Haven' t heard from him since.
