    CMP Round II Field Grade

    My RGN came up last week - had the choice of all 3 grades and decided I'd go with a Field Grade. I carried a 1911A1 in the late 70s up to '84 and thought I'd get one as it would have been issued out of the Arms Room. Like everyone, I initially hoped for a matching frame/slide...and got a total mixmaster. '45 Remington Rand frame, Colt commercial replacement slide, commercial replacement barrel, post-war stocks and a 3rd variation RR mainspring housing. Worn but consistent finish.
    Don't see any rebuild marks. And, I love it.

    I took it out to the small range I have here at home. Put about 75 rounds through it. Functioned well. I did have a few times where it didn't fully chamber the first round after releasing the slide and had some inconsistent ejection patterns. Ejector is tight and looks good. Noted the recoil spring has a little bend in it. I ordered 2 new recoil springs - think that might correct one or both issues. But, it shoots like a champ. For my last magazine I did a rapid fire 7 rounds at 20 yards. I shoot a pistol left handed - pushed one round. This picture also shows the finish better than the initial ones. Not too shabby for a 76 year old War Horse and a 66 year old retired Army Colonel.

    Barrel and Mainspring housing. I think I'm correct that the housing as a (well worn) 3rd Gen RR?

    Almost the same as the field grade I got in round one. Unfortunately on mine the colt markings on the slide are either very lightly stamped or washed out from refinishing to the point they are barely visible.
    My bonus though is that it is marked as a marine depot Albany Georgia rebuild

    Found a source for USGI recoil springs manufactured in 1984 and replaced mine. Also checked both the extractor and ejector and both seemed good. Took it to the range and it fired flawlessly. Truly happy with what I got from CMP.
