    I acquired this beauty on Saturday. It is my first GI pistol, a 1944 Remington Rand.

    I'd shoot it! Looks great. Gonna clean it up at all, or leave it rustic? Too bad about the giant idiot scratch on it! Yeeeowch!

    There's a '44 Remington Rand listed on the LGS forum for $995. doesn't look near as nice as your gun. You gun looks pretty decent other then the scratch. Good score, congrats.

    nice example. I am on the hunt for a USGI, but the prices on them have really skyrocketed lately. My goal is to pick one up for under a grand. Will be tough but with enough patience it should happen.

    The real ones are so cool. To hold them and wonder if they ever saw action.

    That goes for any weapon. Wondering whoay of carried this. Just awesome.

    Comgrats.
