Hello members! I need help with identifying this firearm. My friend has two 1911's that were passed down from his father (now deceased). I have read and done some research but I need additional info on the gun. It is some opinions that the gun should be left in the original condition and as it may be valuable as a collector piece I would like your opinions on the history and how to proceed with the gun (refinish etc. and Value). I am learning more about the 1911's from you guys and value your info, ecspecially you Cane! Any info would be appreciated. If you guys need more pics I can put those up as well. It is stamped United States Property M1911A1 U.S. ARMY, the other side is stamped Remington Rand INC. Syracuse NY USA.
