The serial number, 2071639, is part of a 1944-45 Remington Rand production run of 184,600.

This gun was built in 1945 and probably saw no WW II action.

If it is a fake, it looks like a good one! Hell, I'd pay $20 for it.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

yes it is a fake, the serial number is copied from an original one. i can't even believe it was home made.. i thought the gun would be crude.
the only thing that is not present are the proofmarks & inspection marks

The colt 38 super is a unique pistol that makes a good addition to a collection.

Quote:
The .38 Super was introduced in 1929 in the famous Colt Government Model 1911 auto pistol. At the time of its introduction the .38 Super was the most powerful auto pistol cartridge in the world. Colt is the only major American gun maker who has produced .38 Super pistols. The .38 Super is one of the most powerful and flat-shooting cartridges available for auto-loading pistols.

I'd say everyone should own a Colt Trophy Gold Cup at least once in their life. Classic top of the line Colt. I'd also add either an Ed Brown Kobra Carry or if you want to save some money and have the same parts, a Dan Wesson CBOB.
Lovin' the pics from everyone in this thread! Thanks for posting them up!

My 1911 has Remington slide, Essex frame,, or vice versa,, and was parted together for a good fit back in the 60's. The major components are surely varying ages, but it shoots well and is always reliable and trustworthy,, looks like canbrake's vintage piece,, just alot more beat up,, but sound.
Good shooting,
Jeff
