Looks like some kind of non original front sight. Am I seeing that correctly?
You are right, it appears to be a replacement.
Also I didn't know Fannery bolt barrels were installed on the later Ithaca's?

OK, forgive my ignorance but what is a Fannery bolt barrel and how/where did you see that in these pics?

nothing ignorant about it. none of us knows everything. we're all here to learn. these pics were taken out of my Poyer Book. The barrel obviously isn't visible in MattLF9's pics of his pistol, but you can see the sides of the barrel lug in the pics of my pistol. One side has the "P" for the proof mark. The other side has an "F" for Flannery.

Ahhh, OK. I didn't see the F on your barrel at first glance but looking more carefully, I see it now. Thanks for the explanation.

I have never seen a Double stamp Ithaca in this serial range. Never say never with Ithaca but I am doubtful. Nice looker. F marked barrel is OK in this serial range.

the one pictured immediately above is LesBaer45's pistol. (in one of my previous posts, I incorrectly referred to it as MattLF9's) The one mentioned having the "F" marked barrel, is mine, the one initially mentioned in this thread.

nope. only Colts, and only from circa serial number 710,001- 1, 138,000.

*Edit: another source references serial number 710,001- 1, 208, 673.

There's just something about those WWII era 1911's that just look and feel like they really mean business. I occasionally hold mine and just admire it. Does that make me weird? Probably.

Not weird at all. I know exactly how you feel.

Flannery Bolt Company, barrel. They were produced in Bridgeville, Pa. Mostly wartime replacement barrels, but were manufacturer installed by Ithaca on some of their units. I believe Remington Rand also used these barrels, too. Iím not positive about RR.

I agree with Vette.
FWIK at the beginning ITHACA was short of their supply of correctly marked slides and had to use the M1911A1 U.S. ARMY marked slides on some of the pistols until adequate supplies of correct slides were available, those slides were known as "replacement slides", other than the marking the slides were absolutely identical to the slides used in ordinary production.

Anything with a FLGR is fluff, if JMB didn't put it on the 1911 you don't need it.
If you are going to collect, don't be 'drawn' to an example that is not original, nor correct. Instant gratification is more expensive than a good education.
