The UPS man delivered this today. "US Switch & Signal" M1911A1. Of the 2 million M1911A1's made from 1941 to 1945, only (and exactly) 50,000 were "US S&S" and all were made in 1943. This gun is in excellant condition with only a few small handling marks. All markings are correct and it is authentic from end-to-end. I'm very proud to own this small piece of history.

Greg3, "US S&S" is one of the 5 companies that made M1911A1's for the military during WWII. They were: - Remington-Rand (877,571) - Colt (605,311) - Ithaca (335,466) - US S&S (50,000) - Singer (500) mtnpatriot, - Yes, I have a C&R - shipped from the seller right to my door - sent a copy of my C&R FFL with my payment - Got it off of AuctionArms - Cost: Probably more than I should have paid, but worth it to me

Ok, thanks. I learn something new everytime I get on here. And don't think I thought it was some kind of special switch the barrel/mag and then shoot signal flares......naw I wouldnt think something that stupid......[:I]

drfcolt - nice looking US&S! Prices for the collectable examples of 1911A1s is getting pretty dang crazy. Just saw a primo 1913 Colt on AuctionArms that went up to $9700 or so and still didn't hit its reserve price! Congratulations on a very nice pick-up.
