    I’m thinking of picking up a 1944 Remington Rand. It seems pretty clean with possibly original park (the roll marks seem to crisp for a refinish). There are no rebuild marks on it that I could find.

    Can you guys shed a little light on the gun and maybe give your estimate on the value?

    Thank you in advance.

    Looks re Parkerized there are a number of dings that show no loss of finish or brightness. It’s. A nice piece though.

    Is barrel blued or parkerized (should be blue)? Ding on sight looks parkerized over. Can't see crossed cannons. Mainspring housing looks different color.

    Slide and frame markings (including NO.) put on before finish, serial number, FJA, and crossed cannons after finish.

    Good eye. And I believe barrel was parkerized.

    90BBEF8C-DE6F-44D5-8887-4C701D6AF5BB.jpeg Is it the picture or did they do something different with the frame rails? Refit or tightend? Interesting

    Pretty sure that that is just the picture angle.
    The slide was out of battery for the pix.

    That looks bad to me, I don't think it is picture angle.

    I would pass as a collector piece, at the lest it's refinished. If you want an older piece to shoot, ok. That ejector papers pretty wonnky? I miss my '44 RR shooter.

    Yea if you zoom in on my pic it looks as if maybe a crack? That goes through rail? And the rail on left side looks modified.

    I'm pretty sure that's a hair. It continues over the firing pin stop

    The ejector is not supposed to be triangular like that, it is not supposed to have a step in it near the bottom. It looks like the whole left rear of the frame was crushed in and the ejector cut to clear the hammer.

    6th picture down form the top - when zoomed in, it looks like the top of the thumb safety was drug across the asphalt lol.

    Okay... we need a better pick of the back.

    Slide IN battery, hammer cocker, and the black pubic hair removed.

    The ejector is not triangular. What you’re seeing is the inside of the slide ejector cut, because the slide is about a half inch out of battery.

    It’s an optical illusion.
