I was reading about the prototype Stainless Steel M1's made at the Bridgeport plant in the 40's in Tracie Hill's book today. There were supposedly 6 made. Serial #002 is pictured in the book and is/was owned by William Douglas. Does any one know if any of the other 5 survived?

#001 is with Elvis (where ever he is.....)
#003 is in a crate next to the ark (see the final scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark)
#004 is at Area 51
#005 is in a top secret vault in George Washington's nose at Mount Rushmore
#006 is in my gun safe (I wish)
