Dear all, today I saw a Remington Rand 1911 without any serial no. and US property markings. I told the dealer about the markings normally seen on all military surplus 1911s, but the dealer said if I was right he would give the gun for free.

That is very strange as even US military and government owned firearms have serial numbers since the manufacturer always gives a serial number to any firearm they manufacture.

Asking price was 120k. And I think the gun was punched locally which also a illegal thing for the seller.

Sorry brothers, I couldn't take its pics as the dealer wasn't allowing me to do so. But one thing I noticed that the serial# was like this DAC 125235 on top of the pistol next to the rear sights. I told him it was punched by any local gunsmith and he was cheated. The condition wasn't satisfactory to justify its price. I offered him 60k, but he took it sarcasm.

It can't be, the number is sanded off or the gun has gone through a serious repair. :)

I'm damn sure it's fishy. And the 'M1911 US Army property' was erased.
