Another Strange Find on the US&S

Check out the "p" stamp on the slide. Must be a transitional model lol.

From about s/n 1060100 to about s/n 1082000, the “P” proof was applied at the left edge of the slide because of a poorly drawn ordnance drawing showing the placement of the proof.

Would be interesting to see better close ups of this slide.

Anything with a FLGR is fluff, if JMB didn't put it on the 1911 you don't need it.
If you're going to collect, be careful not to get drawn to a piece that is not original, make sure it is a very good example and buy the gun not the story.

Noticed your location as Northern Italy. Hope all is well with you and yours.

Just a typical human mistake. Somebody was dreaming about their significant other and accidentally marked the same slide twice. Either that or they marked the first P in the wrong spot and decided to hit it again in the right spot.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

Very well thanks so far, being restricted at home with this flippin' Corona thing I've got more time to spend on my favourite gun forums...

Kind regards to all the 1911 enthusiasts!

Any particular feature, Sergio? I just have my cellphone for pics, but i will try to comply. I thought the double "dropped p" stampings on the slide were interesting!
