Re: Jackpot 1911 or NOT?
The "AA" indicates it was rebuilt at Augusta (GA) Arsenal during WWII. The story is highly unlikely; military personnel were not allowed to purchase their issue firearms. Still, it matters not at this point.
FWIW, I think the slide stop, safety, mainspring housing, and grip safety may be original, or at least they are of the 1911 type; I can't tell about the hammer. The grips are not original, of course.
In any case, its colllector value has been destroyed by the chrome plating.
