A very nice and scarce pistol Ray matching or not. It appears to be in very nice shape as well. I believe that out of Colt's entire military production of 1911A1's only 35K were blued. Parkerization began to show up at about the 730000 range and became prevalent at 734000. I recently acquired a blued RS 1941 mismatched by 15 numbers and I'm very happy to have found it.
