    My 1911 A1 has the "REMINGTON RAND INC. on the left side of the slide.
    SYRACUSE, NY U.S.A."

    The serial # "L H 1320" is on the right side of the frame above the trigger assy.

    The only other marking is the letter "P" on the top of the slide 1/2 " foreward of the rear sight.

    The pistol has a parkerized finish and the serial number stamp looks original.

    The trigger, hammer and slide stop are checkered and the safety is grooved.

    Could this be a ERRS experimental model, or a demonstration model, or is the frame of another manufacturer? I have not been able to determine this in anything I've read.

    No other marks on the frame?? (like "US Property") If not I would assume an after-market frame of some sort and thereby a parts gun.

    Looks like Larry Haggerty (or Leon Hardy, or Lionel Hochsteder) of 1320 Main Street (or whose SSN is 123-45-1320) built a gun from an unnumbered frame and put a serial number on it.

    Remington's "ERRS" guns were marked (ready for this?) "ERRS."
