I have a request for a holster for a Randall Combat 45. Looks like the 1911 copy to me. I have not been able to fine a blue gun for this model. Can someone advise where I can find a blue gun for this model or what other 1911 style blue gun, if any, will work for the molding of the holster?

Thanks for any and all input.

if its this one?   "In production for less than two years, the California-made Randall M1911 hails from the Reagan-era and is a solid piece of firearms history that is increasingly collectible."   

Then any 1911 copy will work with the same barrel length.

The Randall was simply a stainless 1911.They were produced in both full size (5 inch barrel) and Commander (4.25 inch barrel) size.

This one shows made in Hartford Connecticut. I’ll try to get more info on it. Thanks again

Are you sure it isn't a Remington Rand frame as that is really collectable, it would be a ww2 era contract gun made by Remington in Hartford. And would be an exact copy of the original colt 1911

check the frame this appears to have had a different slide fitted as most 1911s have matching frames and slides. the frame appears to show more wear than the slide. either way it is still a 1911 pattern so the 1911 blue gun will work.

That gun pictured has a Gold Cup type slide fitted.  There is a sight rib milled into the slide.  A standard 1911 Blue Gun will not work without modification.  
 

Oh, and based on the picture above the gun is a Colt 1911, with the Randall slide.  70S serial number range puts the frame as from a 1979 Series 70 MK IV Government Model

You can  add the "rib" to the bluegun, not that hard. I've made dummy laser sights and other additions to my holster molds, some even held on with clear packing tape. Nice to be able to add and take away different features from the mold, saves money and usually time.

good eye mine are to old to see that very well! Amazing that one would add a Randall slide to a colt frame from what i have read Randalls are pretty collectable and few were made sure would love to have the lefty version though. I have used a strip of leather taped to the top of the blue gun to simulate the rib and on others to get rid of the "hump" and create a sight channel maybe that would work here as well.

One other small point to consider is that the Randall was offered in either right-hand or left-hand versions. The left-hand model was a mirror image, all the various features and controls (safeties, slide release, ejection port, mag release, etc) configured for left-hand operation.

Need I say EXTREMELY COLLECTIBLE?
