    My Dad had a Rem Rand (typewriter company) 1911. It was mint and likely unissued. He paid $25 for it back in the day! He traded it off 10 years ago :-(

    It's not an oil spot. The last couple inches of the slide. And the metal around the slide is spot hardened. These areas take a battering. The rest of the side was left soft. Except the hardened bushing at the firing pin opening. The harder medal of the slide takes the park differently. And so It looks like a oil spot.

    That's what makes the Remington Rand so desirable. They were specifically chosen by master armorers for the Camp Perry National Matches held after the war.
    Remington Rand perfected the hardening process by pouring molten lead over those areas.
    Towards the end of WW2 Remington Rands were second to none as far as quality and accuracy was concerned.

    No. They lead dipped the heal of M1 Garands to make them soft.
    The discolored areas on the rem-rand's are hardened. Different process.
