Value of Remington Rand WWII Colt

Wandering into a Pawn shop on Saturday I spotted a Remington Rand 1911A1.

Looks to be in about 85-90% condition with the pistol and one magazine, nothing else.

I was thinking that it must be somewhere between $50 and $5,000.

I have never purchased a WWII anything so I have no idea of the value, but I would like to keep something like this for interests sake.

I appreciate any help.
Thanks
Cameron

Edit: for spelling.

According to the Blue Book, a Remington Rand that is all original, not a re-import, in 85-90% condition would bring $375 to $425, although prices are rising due to the decrease in available military 1911's.

... and there I was standing there thinking I would offer him $800 on the spot. Glad I got your response before I did that.

Thanks I appreciate it.

If this specimen had 95% of its original finish, $800 would be fair, but not for one that is well worn. Only Colt made more 1911-A1's than Remington-Rand, so the Colt and Remingtons are quite common.

stansdds,
I hate to disagree with you but Remington Rand made more M1911A1s than Colt. Also the Blue Book is so far off on values on these that I will personally buy any/all M1911 and M1911A1 pistols that are available at Blue Book values. The Standard Catalog of Military Firearms is much closer to market values and a new edition is due out within the next month or so. I never thought Rem Rands would bring more than $1,000 but on today's market they do that regularly. Even those in 85% condition, if all correct, will pull $750 - $900. US&S pistols have reached as much as $3,500 for a minty gun and real dogs have sold recently for $1,500.

For 375-425 I will buy Remington-Rand 1911's all day long, I have never seen one go for that price, no matter how beat up - at least not recently. I think a 90% gun depending on the part of the country you are in you are looking at $800 - $1,000. A dealer who I use just sold a minty one for $1500 but thats here in Kalifornia
