First off, that is a Remington and not a Colt 1911.
I can't tell from the pics, but if it is all original then it would be worth around $2,000.
Handle it with care. Because it is in very good condition and every mark/scratch it receives the value goes down.

I am by no means an expert on the 1911, but I am seeing some inconsistencies that lead me to believe this a parts gun or a rebuild. It looks to have been refinished at one time.

Remington and Rand manufactured approximately 900, 000 model 1911A1’s (a different model than your 1911) from 1942-1945. (See link below for history of the company)


The frame is serial No 34604, marked 1911 and has a Rock Island Arsenal stamp on the frame. This slide is a Type 2 which was reportedly used on serial numbers 927000-1015000. The frame and slide are not from the same manufacture.

I can’t help establish a value for the gun, but considering the frame and slide are made by different manufacturers, it would guess the value is as a shooter grade.

Your gun is not original, it aperies refinished in a FDE (Flat Dark Earth) - $
Stamped US property + $
= $1,000

The "M1911 US Army" has been hand-stamped with individual stamps. It's not original.
