US&S -UnionSwitch & Signal WWII 1911A  Guns > Rifles > TU Misc Rifles
Description: This gun is an authentic Union Switch & Signal WWII 1911A pistol. US&S, based out of Sunnydale, Pa, was one of four manufacturers who produced this pistol for the U. S. military during WWII. While Colt & Ithaca were producing around 500,000 of these pistols for our vets, US & S only made around 55,000. This makes this a very rare and costly version of this trusty weapon, with only the models being produced by Singer rarer. This is a true WWII collector's gun. This model was one of approximately the first 10,000 or 15,000produced. All markings are correct, this model is from the pre "P" stamping period, so this model does not have those markings on it. The slide and frame markings match, and everything is correct and original. Includes one original two-tone clip and an original 1941 BOYT leather holster. This gun has the original finish with the machining marks on the slide that prove it's original finish. The finish looks like it is slightly blued & parkerized. This is exactly what an original US & S pistol is supposed to look like, giving it it's unique appearance. The gun has the normal wear marks that you would expect from a field grade weapon that has seen actual wartime combat use, light scratches and holster friction marks. Overall, this gun looks excellent and is without rust spots or pitting. This gun is in perfect working order, although I have never personally shot it. Good bore with rifling intact. This pistol has only had one owner, my father, who carried it as a sidearm  in Okinawa, while he was a platoon sargeant. No one else has ever shot it. This fine and rare pistol is a piece of American and world history and it's steadily climbing value reflects that. I hate to sell it and I almost hope no one buys it, but I need the money for my family. I apologize for the lower resolution pictures, this is all new to me. I have more available, just email me. I will also take more with a 7.2 mega pixel camera if you need me to. If you are not completely satisfied I will immediately refund your money the same way you sent it to me, Money Order, with no questions asked. This gun was an inheritance and there will be many more listed by me soon, including many more quality WWII pieces like M1 carbines and M1 Garands. Thanks for looking and have a nice day.
