Congrats Ilyas bhai, i know you have been working for this piece for quite sometime congrats. i am happy for you mate :)

Ilyas
20-10-2009, 12:28 AM
@Glocky... Thanks Bro :) How come you knew about it? It was just an impulsive buy few months ago... didn't
have to go through much effort for it, had to wait for the grips though.

Glocky
20-10-2009, 12:36 AM
;) i might not post often but i do follow whats going on, you did happen to post sometime back your interest in one, secondly the new galco holster and the grim reaper grips were a dead giveaway that you had been waiting for them to show off your new baby. I know the feeling bro :)

Ilyas
20-10-2009, 12:43 AM
:lol: :lol: you are one keen observer bro :) Wanted to do little customization with some parts which were
available, but then decided to dump the idea... decided to keep it as it is.

Fair enuff, keep it stock for now and customize as per your convenience and need. Just do yourself one favor and get as many good working magazines as you can get your hands on. Trust me you will never regret investing in extra mags

Ilyas
20-10-2009, 12:51 AM
I have 3 in total right now. Do you suggest getting more? New original mags are quite
reasonably priced over here.

Ilyas
20-10-2009, 01:01 AM
@Glocky... :lol: What do you mean by all? There might be hundreds available :)

Glocky
20-10-2009, 01:05 AM
Sirjee get as many as you can afford to buy, i try to buy as many mags as i can afford at any time. FYI I have 15 mags for my Glocks, and still looking to buy more. :|

Ilyas
20-10-2009, 01:08 AM

KageFox
20-10-2009, 05:43 PM
Ilyas Bhai, does your Rem-Rand 1911 have an original finish or has it been refinished?

Slayerjatt
20-10-2009, 06:27 PM
MASHAALLAH it's a beautiful weapon you have sir and very nicely taken pics.

20-10-2009, 07:30 PM
sorry Dr. zakir sahib i am not selling it.

Mig
20-10-2009, 07:30 PM
I have the same pistol by Remington Rand.. Actually, this is a Colt product but One Tender went to Remington in second world war, and around 10000 pistols were produced by the company. Nowadays, Remington does not make this.

I think its refinished.

Ilyas
20-10-2009, 09:30 PM
Thanks to all my brothers for their appreciation :)
@Ahmad Bhai... Thanks for the tempting offer, I'll definetly try to avail it :) I already have asked the same dealer
to keep an eye for another piece. I'll let you know if it happens.
@KF... Bro I don't think it has been refinished. Basically all Remington Rands were perkerized and read on some Gun Forum once by an owner in the US, that the parts other than the main frame had a darker finish. Same is the case with mine, therefore I don't think it has been refinished.
@Mig... Bro as far as I know, Remington Rand produced more than 10000 pieces. If you want any to have an idea about the number of 1911s produced in those years by all the manufacturers and their serial numbers, year of manufacture etc, please check this web page, it might be helpful.

KageFox
20-10-2009, 09:59 PM
I was just wondering as the finish looks impeccable, usually older guns show signs of wear. The Rem-Rand, in my opinion, is quite old as it dates back to one of the World Wars...

Ilyas
20-10-2009, 10:12 PM
It's good for it's age but certainaly not immaculate. It was manufactured in 1945, the last year of Reminton Rand 1911 production.

@Ilyas.. thankx bro for the correct info. . After posting I was also thinking that I have missed some zeros in the LSB.

Ilyas
22-10-2009, 01:00 AM
@MHMalik, Xerga, Sajjad n Wasifali... Bros thanks alot for your appreciation.
@Zubair... bhai these are Hogue Scrimshaw Grim Reaper grips. You can buy these online. Not available
with Tayyab Ali Karachi, their authorized dealer in Pakistan.

Adeel Ahmad
22-10-2009, 12:18 PM
Zubair Bhai its very expensive at Hogue. I am also on the look out for such hogue and i will let you know if i find any cheaper store for Hogue. Sorry Ilyas Bhai but just have to share following Grips by Wicked Grips :)

Awesome Grips but the guy takes 14 to 18 Months only :) to produce one Pair.

@ilyas,in how much u got this gun?

Ilyas
22-10-2009, 11:02 PM
@Sunny... Bro hope you don't mind if I skip answering this one, for some reason :)
@Adeel... These are definitely nice. I think Moeen has the same ones on his Colt Commander.
Before buying any grips, plz check ebay as well, if you can some how arrange buying on it, coz
I think they only use PayPal, which is not available in Pakistan.
@Tareen Bhai... Thanks :)

Sunny
22-10-2009, 11:21 PM
@ilyas,
no problem sir.just let me know if u find another like this one.

Ilyas
22-10-2009, 11:38 PM
Ok I definitely will :D

Glocky
14-11-2009, 04:53 PM
@Ilyas, so did you get yourself some extra magazines ?

Ilyas
14-11-2009, 10:44 PM
Salams Bro! Hope all is fine with you. Well unfortunately, I haven't been to the market for buying
those magazines. The security situation, as you know, has worsened recently and going out for
such shopping just doesn't seem that appealing, these days :(

AK47
14-11-2009, 11:57 PM
One hell of a gun, Ilyas! Seems like you've a taste for the tastiest of things! Btw, If I'm not wrong, it's just and exactly the "parkerized" finish that has kept it's freshness. I guess it's more solid and longer lasting than traditional blueing? However, keep it safe bro, or don't ever disclose your address to us Pakgunner's!

DUST
15-11-2009, 04:50 AM
really nice gun. MASHALLAH.
BTW i think you should customize it a bit. just an opinion.

Ilyas
16-11-2009, 12:00 AM
@AK47 n DUST... Thanks for liking it. I intend to customize it, but do not feel to rush it up :)

Ahmad
16-11-2009, 09:18 AM
@AK47 n DUST... Thanks for liking it. I intend to customize it, but do not feel to rush it up :)
in my opinion, it do not need any customization, if this gun has worked & played its role in ww2 & number of other conflicts, it will do so for next 70 years. for customization buy a new Tarus or any other 1911, but this old war horse only needs some care,
cheers

ilyas bhaee and ahmed bhaee exactly what i think. keep this old timer as it is and it's still beautiful, holding a place of its own. For customization, consider any new-age 1911, which are usually customization-ready from the very beginning.
