I’m looking to get my first 1911. I really like the looks of the original design. I’m thinking of getting a Remington 1911 R1, anyone have any experience with these?
All the same reasons why I like the Remington R1. I also like the short trigger as I don't have a large hand and I can wrap my trigger finger around the short trigger better. Remington is a reputable company and I don't hear many complaints about their customer service. Customer service is important to me because when something goes "south" you want to know that someone out there cares.. . . I am looking to get a 1911 that has the look and feel of the original, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be 100% accurate. . . I like the better sights and improved ejection port on this model, and I actually like the look of the stainless bushing. I have fired a friend’s R1 and it was very comfortable to shoot and fit my hand well. I didn’t have any problem with the slide or hammer biting my hand so I don’t think lack of a beaver tail will be a problem. Also the safety fit my thumb perfectly. . . .
Could you post the link to the range report? I scrolled through the first five pages and did a search, didn't find it. ThanksI have heard very good things about this 1911. This is one I am actually looking into except I am looking at the enhanced version. Go to 1911 Addicts and read the review they give it.
