Re: remington rand 1911 .45 cal pistol military ?
That '67' you described is more than likely a 'rack number'. Most of the weapons I was issued on active duty (Army) had numbers and symbols painted on as rack numbers to quickley identify the rifle or what ever weapon is was for a faster means of issueing the weapon by the unit armorer from the unit armory.
An example was an M16A1 that I was issued in Nam. It had a rack number of '199' pinted in white and a blue triangle painted on the butt stock. This was rifle number 199, and the blue triangle identified it as being issued to a member of C Company (A company had a red triangle, B company the white triangle and C company had the blue triangle).
