IN 94% ORIGINAL CONDITION, WE HAVE A VERY RARE AND SELDOM SEEN US WW1 ISSUED REMINGTON UMC 1911 PISTOL.  THIS PISTOL IS 100% FACTORY ORIGINAL AND CORRECT AND HAS MUCH MORE FINISH THAN YOU EVER SEE.  THESE WELL MADE BUT VERY ROUGH LOOKING PISTOLS WERE FINISHED IN AN EXTREMELY FRAGILE BLUE FINISH THAT DID NOT STAND THE TEST OF TIME AND THIS IS THE NICEST EXAMPLE THAT WE HAVE HAD IN THE OFFICE.  THESE UMC PISTOLS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A REAL CHALLENGE TO LOCATE IN THIS FINE CONDITION, MOST HAVE NO FINISH LEFT AND ALWAYS  HAVE REPLACED PARTS, MANY WERE ALSO COBBLED TOGETHER OUT OF THE TON OF UNUSED PARTS THAT REMINGTON HAD ON HAND WHEN THE CONTRACT WAS CUT SHORT DUE TO THE END OF HOSTILITIES.  THIS IS A WONDERFUL EXAMPLE OF A GUN PRODUCED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PRODUCTION RUN EXACTLY AS YOU WOULD WANT TO HAVE IT.  THIS RARE CONTRACTOR 1911 WOULD BE A REAL PRIZE TO ANY SERIOUS COLLECTOR.  ABSOLUTELY ONE OF THE TOUGHEST GUNS TO OBTAIN THIS NICE AND ORIGINAL.
