It would take an expert to verify the originality and correctness of the pistol. I believe kkk, on this forum, is an authority on these type pistols.

Its a fake. That is not a USGI receiver, the contours are all wrong for that. The dimensions look like an Argentine receiver.

among other things, the gap indicated by the arrows is far too wide to be a USGI frame.

Yup, it looks like an Essex or similar frame that somebody decided to make a fake EXP out of using a genuine US&S top end.

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.

The fakers are like wolves. The only reason why they survive is because there are so many sheep out there who tend to wander too close.
