1945 Remington Rand NO 2417638

I don't believe I've shown this pistol. Very little use, superb original condition.
One of approximately 30,000 pistols shipped in May 1945. Characteristic of the later Remington Rands. Blanchard marks on the slide, excellent finish but some evidence of machine marks on the frame. Crisp, clearly defined markings including the Ordnance Stamp. High Standard Barrel and a Little magazine

Sweet looking late-war RR. Do you have the box for it, either original or DCM?

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.

How well does the frame match the slide finish/color wise?

Fxntime...The frame and slide are virtually identical in color. The frame might be just a hint darker but unless you really study the pistol, not discernible. The frame and slide proof marks are identical.
dsk...I looked but do not have a box for this one.
While rummaging around, I found some stuff in another pistol box. Two original, sealed, wrapped WWII magazines and two pair of WWII stocks, except for one left stock pictured, still wrapped in the original packaging. I'd forgotten about them hidden away in some dark place. Lucky me!

Looks like we have a couple of guns close in numbers. My RR is 24125XX. You have some nice examples. Keep the pictures coming!

Blanchard marks? Are these broaching markings? Like from a rotary broach.

Blanchard was the company the built a rotary surfacing machine. On 1945 Remington Rand slides, the machine left what is referred to as Blanchard marks, a signature surfacing mark. On 1945 RR pistols they are relatively pronounced and tend toward being circular, arc like.
I hope a machinist answers the question better than me.

I think you have it right. It's a rotary grinder.

Super neat, thanks for posting. Those '45 productions runs tended to come out looking a bit on the rough side. The ones at my old unit still ran just fine and went bang every time.
