Miggy said:It is not unusual for a non-traditional manufacturer to produce firearms, but it usually happens during times of war. The M1 carbine was made by companies from Underwood (typewriters) to Rock-Ola to IBM. In the case of Korea, I am guessing every plant there may have something to do with weapons or military having such a weird and unstable neighbor to the north.
It sure looks like a nice gun to me!
If I'm not mistaken, Remington Rand acquired the machinery from Singer (sewing machines) after Singer produced 500 pistols. Which, by the way, are some of the most valuable guns around (because there were only 500 made).ExSoldier762 said:I own a WWII 1911 .45 made by Remington Rand. They made typewriters and sewing machines before the war.
