    A Para 1911 but can’t find a slide like this anywhere on internet. Anyone know it? Value?

    Looks like an extended slide conversion. Aftermarket work, possibly done for bullseye or some other competitive sport. Best guess.

    I've not previously seen one that moves the front sight forward though.

    The slide is marked Remington Rand. If the sight cut hasn't destroyed the value, it's likely worth more than the rest of the gun. It's all very likely a complete custom build. Good for parts or to swap out the slide for a cheaper one.

    what ya got there is a good shootin iron.
    get you some H&G 68's or some lyman 452460's and go make some nice tight 50yd groups.

    you'll want to check your recoil spring weights they are probably like 12 lbs.
    so slamming everything around with 230gr ball ammo will bust things up in there.
