I was at one of the gunshops in town, and asked to see a Remington Rand 1911A1 that looked to be in pretty decent shape. It had some holster wear, and it was a former MP sidearm, as it had a number kind of spray paint-stenciled on the right grip panel; like you see with MP weapons. Anywho, on the right side of the frame, just underneath and to the rear of the cocking serration, there was a distinct stamp that looked like the Springfield Armory logo- you know, the crossed cannons with a grenade in the middle. I asked the guy "Is this a Springfield frame?" He said no, that it was indeed a full Remington, and that the stamp was an armorer's stamp, and that Springfield actually stole this logo later on. Is he pulling my leg, or is there some truth to this? The gun was $1200, if that helps.
