5/31/17 - This is a rare, early Remington UMC 1911 in all-original configuration.  Of the three manufacturers of U.S. Military 1911 pistols, the Remington-UMC is the least common with only ~21,000 produced.  This pistol is a first-year Remington UMC production (1918), with proper E.E.C. inspectors marking on the left side of the frame.  Major Edmond E. Chapman was responsible for the entire Rem-UMC production.  Below his mark is an Eagle/28 proof.  The slide is marked with the 'E' above the firing pin stop.  Barrel chamber is marked with a single "P", which is correct for Remington-UMC production.  The finish rates at about 90%, with a beautiful slide but notable wear on the straps.  Excellent bore.
