My friend showed me his old 1911 that he bought back in 1986 when he was in the Army for $275. The slide says Remington Rand and the frame says Essex Arms Corp. What are we dealing with here? Is it a WWII era 1911? Is it worth alot of money? It is in very worn and faded condition but still a cool looking old 1911 none the less. I am thinking its a newer made gun since it has a full length guide rod and adjustable target sights. The old G.I.'s didnt have those, that I do know. Or maybe its a Frankenstien gun?
