The Ordnance stamp looks OK as an Ordnance stamp. But that S/N is scary as far as i am concerned. The gun has an obliterated original serial and a new one applied - and unless it was cleared with ATFE (there are some provisions of law allowing that, but complicated and touchy because you have to admit to having a gun wth S/N removed to do it, unless you are serializing an arm that never had one).Editing my post

Just got this pics tonight, getting pistol tomorrow. It appears I do have a remington rand, i was going off the # he gave me and I thought it was a colt from 1918 based on that number, didnt know about the "R" afterwards. So now i'm wondering what I do have. I know its a 1911a1, frame has "FJA" who inspected all RR's, not sure about the cross cannons. Wondering why the ser # is not in RR's range. online shows rr range from 916405-2465139, was it restamped? What does the "R" signify? why would it be restamped? Other RR's I have seen had the united states property and m1911a1 us army, don't see that on this one. I'm confused, can anyone help tell me what I have?? Thanks.
