Are slide, barrels Serialized to know it's a orginal?

I was wondering if les Baers 1911 have the last 4 digits or markings typically on the interior of the guns to know its orginal?

Such as the barrel and slide match the frame serial number? Any chance any other parts are marked also?

The underside of the slide on the raceway is stamped with the last 3 or 4 digits of the serial number from the frame. Other parts are electro penciled with the same digits. The slide stop, barrel, bushing and mainspring housing on all mine are serialized to the gun.

Yup, my 20 year old Baer has the last three digits on all the parts BradE listed.

I was really happy to find that it is in the original config. Good feature IMO.

How about so that the parts stay together during fitting, finishing and assembly.

Common practice before more automated manufacturing and assembly lines.

To keep the parts together as they move down the assembly line
