Can anyone authenticate this? I’ve heard of people making fakes.

Not entirely sure what you're confused about here? Remington Rand made over 875k 1911s during WWII, they're not a particularly rare item.

It looks like it was left to rust for awhile, and then refinished later. If so, this negatively affects the collector's value. And it seems like a lot to spend on just a shooter.

He wants to trade for my Glock 19. I read a forum about guys shaving off RIA markings and stamping on Rand US Gov’t ones.
Any idea what a refinished shooter grade would go for? Gunbroker is all over the place.

Better shot of the 18c

What's the story on the 18C? I assume it's the store's dealer sample? Putting the trijicon with a price tag next to it is such a tease.

Dealer was showing it off at a gun show in Arkansas. He has a wall of select fire SMGs.

Postwar arsenal reparked/refinished pistols are the norm in my experience. That one is pretty obvious with the faded stamps. Very rarely do you see a true bring back with original worn finish. The last one I saw was a "dad died and I'm not really a gun person" scenario.

While in my opinion it being a refinished gun with a fairly prominent idiot scratch diminishes the value well below 90%, blue book is just a general guideline and I think $1,500 for a US property marked gun is most definitely not outside the norm, but certainly not a steal.

I'm assuming he wants cash as well, because I would trade my 19 for that in an instant. (despite being a total glockfag that has zero interest in 1911's other than historically significant examples).
