Please update your title to, "...A Remington Rand 1911 that fell outta the ugly tree, climbed another, and fell outta that one too."

Yea, not for that one.

WTF happened with those slide serrations?
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 10:57:10 AM EST
That bling will get you some respect in da hood. Needs pearl grips though.

I dislike Glocks, but that is one big turd! It should be painted brown!

Depends, how much do you have in the G30?

The slide is fucked, you'll have to chuck it. You can find RR slides on various auction sites though, if you want to keep the name. If the rest of the internals/parts/barrel is ok, you could strip it of it's nickle, pick up a Springfield slide, and turn it into a pretty good MEUSOC clone if you were so inclined. It'll never be a collector's piece, but the frame is proper and if the internals and barrel check out it can still be a primo 1911...again - with a proper replacement slide. Even a Caspian can breathe new life into it.

If you have less than 500 into the G30, I probably would go for it, knowing I'll be dropping another $500 or so on the project...again - dependant on internals and barrel. I couldn't see spending more than 550-600 on it though, knowing it would be a project.

If the owner of the 1911 added at least $250 to the deal.

Get another slide on ebay for around $150 and get the gun bead blasted and parked for $100 to $150.

Sell the current slide for around $50 to $75.

Assuming the bore is nice and no other areas of pitting.

So you end up with the trade for a Glock 30 +$25 and a nice Remington Rand.

I came here to say sure or maybe. I saw the picture and now it's hell no!!!

Link Posted: 12/12/2013 11:00:51 AM EST
nope
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 11:02:33 AM EST
No, not even if it was a pristine one, unless said pristine one was worth a lot, then I'd trade it, sell the 1911, buy another G30 (or more realistically, a 9mm Glock), and bank the rest.

That's just me though.

Not even an original Colt, Singer or Union Switch and Signal? Not very wise to pass one of those up in favor of an easily replaced generic pistol in current production.

Only a pimp from a cheap New Orleans whorehouse would carry a pearl-handled pistol.

I kinda was till I got the pic with the jacked up slide. I figured it could be refinished. Best part is he said it was valued at $500-600 before he sent the pic.

Good point. I was thinking of the more recent retro-milspec guns.

That 1911 is ruined.

At first I was like

Then I was like

Now I am

If the frame is OK I would give like $100 for it, put on a Caspian/Forster slide, strip & re-park, bush a decent barrel and use as a milspec bullseye pistol.

So yeah, I would trade a Glock for it.
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 11:38:18 AM EST
Nope. Not that one. Not a chance.

If your Glock looks like this...then maybe if the 1911 owner throws in some extra cash

Did someone put the slide in a vice or something? Bet ya the fucker was rusted shut at one point and pliers were used to pull the slide back. Fucked up, rusted finish turns to chrome bling...........
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 12:03:52 PM EST
Gonna be hard to hit anything till you put on a front sight.
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 12:33:54 PM EST
That thing is even uglier than a Glock.

Normally I would say HELL YAH, but in this case considering the condition of that Rem Rand...I would say NO.

I want to make sex to my original 1943 Remington Rand and would normally throw the Glock at the guy I'd be into the trade so fast.

Unfortunately, that thing is so hashed out I'd probably pass. Sad to see.
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 12:44:45 PM EST
I was coming here to say I would, but, not so much
BTW I don't own a Glock
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 12:46:12 PM EST
that is one fucked-up looking M1911
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 12:47:41 PM EST
Absolutely not. It's worth maybe $200 tops. There is nothing on that that has any value whatsoever.

[And this is from a guy that owns more then a few]

For a nice clean RR, heck yes, I'd dump ANY Glock made [same for a 18]

Link Posted: 12/12/2013 12:49:59 PM EST
I was about to say yes until I saw nickel plating. I got a nice one off a member here that was re-parked decently and shoots real well for a little more than a new Glock large frame cost. Worth it for a piece of 1944 history.
