Here for your perusal is WWI Remington UMC .45ACP US Army Model 1911 pistol serial number 3345 which was shipped in October 28 1918 serial number range 511-4657 per report "Serial Numbers of .45 Colt Automatic Pistols Manufactured Under Contract # P4537-3338Sa, Remington Arms-UMC to Major Lee O. Wright, Ord. Dept. USA, July 26, 1923. Anyone know if additional shipping information such as receiving organization/unit etc is available?

Im confused what your question is on shipping. It would have to be shipped to an FFL. Unless you have a C/R lisence.

Hi Coalcracker;

Hi Coalcracker; I already have this pistol since I have a C&R license. I already know this pistol was shipped on October 28 1918 and know what serial numbers and how many where in this shipment in 1918; I'd like to know what Army unit or organization received this pistol (most were shipped to the Commanding Officer Springfield Armory Massachusetts before being sent to the AEF in France). Hope that clarifies the question.

I am beyond jealous of your beautiful example of a 1911.
Beautiful condition. No pitting as far as I can see in the photos.
