Grandads Remington Rand 1911
Here is the 1911 that influenced my purchase of my first pistol. This is a Remington Rand 1911 built in and around 1940's at the Syracuse NY plant. A friend gave it to my Grandfather in pieces. I think it came out of the plant that way....kind of like Johnny Cash's Cadilac song. It sat in a Mason Jar for about 20yrs before my Great Uncle put it together in the 1960's. Must have been all the right stuff. Shoots great! That's my first pistol, a Kimber Grand Raptor, next to it.
