Rock Island Rebuild Remington Rand

Let me try for #2 here, so the shop that sold me the RR with the modified frame offered me a Rock Island rebuild Remington Rand instead.
Seems to be a pretty nice example, serial number 1041210, type 2 slide, Flannery Bolt Co barrel, looks to have had little use since rebuild.
Couple things I notice is what appears to be a flaming bomb on the right side and the slide is marked M1911 A1 U S Army which I guess was done during rebuild.
Hopefully this is a good one.

A few things stand out.
I've never seen a slide marked like that on the right side. The font, the size and the location of the markings are not standard.
The right side frame, immediately adjacent to the grip safety, at the top of the frame, seems to have been oddly machined. It is angled vs being "sharp".
The slide stop is not for a 1911A1.
I presume the F on the right side of the frame also has a lightly stamped or mostly obscured K too.
Others more capable than I will probably chime in.

Thanks for your input, the US Army on the slide has me wondering also, I did find a couple references that stated Remington Rand replacement slides may have been marked this way but I can find no pictures.
The area you called out on the frame does look like it may have sustained some damage at some point during its life or during the rebuild process, other than appearance I don't think it would make any function difference.
I will have to look closer at the various rebuild marks to see what I can make out.
Thanks again.

Picked it up yesterday and pretty happy with it, not only is it marked Rock Island with a FK it all has a SA rebuild mark, appears to have seen quite a bit of use over the years but little to no use since it's last rebuild.
The U S Army roll mark on the slide appears to match the one on the frame except the frame one is softened more due to refinishing. Proof P's match in size.
Mix of parts, has correct Keyes grips, looks to be a Colt commercial magazine.
