    I have an argentine complete slide on a Springfield GI lower and it shoots great. A more beat up than the one you show but haven't had any issues. I think mine was from 1927 or 28 IIRC.

    S/N C199300 to C208799 – 1941 – 9500
    Appears your gun was made by Colt in 1941, sold to Argentina.

    My gun was made by Colt in 1933 (S/N C164800 to C174599 – 1933 – 9800)
    and also was sold to Argentina. Returned to the US in 1981 by Interarms.
    It was very worn, almost no bluing left. Slide was very loose.
    Was stamped "POLICIA DE LA CAPITAL"

    I sold an older but refinished Argentine Colt for $700 about five years ago. It was a nice pistol, but I couldn’t bring myself to cut on it.
