Tisas 1911A1 1943 Remington Rand Details
The pistol duplicates the original Type E hammer and comes with a period-correct arched mainspring housing. A small window ejection port and more deliver that timeless look of the WW2 Government Model.
“Until now, no one has produced a true replica of the issue M1911A1,” stated SDS/Tisas USA CEO Tim Mulverhill. “Many companies have created ‘GI’ or similarly named models, but none of them were true representations of the original. We set out to create a version that would be hard to tell apart when holding an original in one hand and the Tisas in the other. Until you see the discreet manufacturer information under the dust cover, you can’t tell them apart other than wear and the cruder wartime machining marks of the originals. We even considered adding the flaming Ordnance Bomb proof mark, but there is a fine line between replica and counterfeit, and we felt that would be crossing it.”
The pistol even duplicates the correct United States Property roll marks. It ships with correct brown, plastic grips. An extra set of walnut, double-diamond, checkered grips also come with the 1911A1.
The Remington Rand replica retails for $479.99. For more info, visit tisausa.com.
