They all say 1 of 300? That's very strange.
My Colt is 249 of 250 in it's series. I would have thought they were all done that way, it certainly makes more sense to me.

Did it come with the original paperwork? Is there any information as to who did the upgrade work? There ought to be some card or something to describe it's background. My Colt was done by an outfit called America Remembers. If you can figure out who did it, you can call them. If Remington had it done "in house" then you might be best served calling them for details. In fact you might be best served calling them first, they should be able to get you pointed in the right direction.

Default Remington Pearl Harbor Edition

Hey guys thanks for all the advice. I called Remington about my 1911 and man did I get a shock! I ask for help on what number of 300 was my gun, the gentle told me "he had no idea how to tell because a company bought 300 of those guns and done modifications to them and they had nothing to do with it! Also another "shocker" Remington did not honor the warranty! He said "Remington didn't even have a gun in WWII so why would they make a special edition" Well that done it for me! I now am the owner of a new Smith and Wesson 1911AT "E" edition thanks to my gun shop who refunded 100% of the price of the R1.

Wow that's really weird about the Remington - but regardless of that, you will love the E-series S&W. Those are fine guns!
