I just lucked into a nice 1911 Colt. ser # puts it at about 1917. To my untrained eye, it looks mostly correct, Property mark on the left side is intact, but a little hard to read, smooth mainspring housing with lanyard loop, long steel trigger etc. The only things that jumps out at me are the plastic (non-diamond) grips, and much later production magazine...
Ok Here is the question; there is an A A stamped to the left of the slide stop, and the barrel is stamped "S" over a "P" next to the link, any ideas what those mean? The finish is a gray park. WW II arsenal refurb?
Any ideas are helpful. I'll post a pick when i can.

Yes, the A A means it was refurbished at the Augusta Arsenal. The S P stamped barrel is a Springfield replacement of WWII vintage.
