About the Union Switch & Signal Model 1911A1 U.S. Military Series

Union Switch & Signal Model 1911A1 U.S. Military Series

On May 5, 1942, Union Switch & Signal or Swissvale, PA entered into a contract to manufacture 200,000 pistols for the U.S. Government.  In January, 1943, notice was given that the contract was cancelled, which reduced the size of the contract to 30,000 pistols with terminal serial number 1071404.  Due to a production shortage, the government ordered an additional 25,000 pistols, the last of which was shipped from the factory on November 27, 1943.
