Product Description
remington The accuracy and reliability that have made the 1911 an American icon now shine brighter than ever. The Model 1911 R1 is truly the finest blend of exacting craftsmanship and out-of-the-box performance available today. Every element is produced with ultra-tight tolerances on equipment representing the height of modern technology. The result is a sweet-shooting advancement of a legendary design that Remington is more than proud to put their name on. Like the original 1911, the 1911 R1 has a flat mainspring housing, short trigger, and double-diamond American walnut grips. Modern enhancements on the 1911 R1 include a flared and lowered ejection port, beveled magazine well, loaded chamber indicator, a precision-machined slide and frame, high profile dovetailed single-dot front and two-dot rear sights, a crisp 3.5 - 5 lb. trigger pull, and a match-grade stainless steel barrel, and barrel bushing. It also has the Series 80-style firing pin block safety. The Remington 1911 R1 ships in a custom plastic carry case with two seven-round anti-friction magazines and a barrel bushing wrench.

    I was looking to buy the Citadel or the GI Mil Spec. I couldn't see the sights with my 56 yr old eyes. The Remington sights were Huge and it felt "just right" in my hand. Extremely accurate and well put together. One of the GanderMtn RO's thought I had had a trigger job done and when I told him it was stock his reply was "No Way!"

    Accurate shooter, but finish cheap

    Good gun. I've had no jams or issues with it. Very accurate right out of the box. It doesn't get more than 3 stars because I've owned this gun for about a year...Read complete review

    Good gun. I've had no jams or issues with it. Very accurate right out of the box. It doesn't get more than 3 stars because I've owned this gun for about a year and it already is losing the bluing near the muzzle. Not a big deal, because I can have it refinished with a better product but if you want to keep it original don't count on the finish lasting.

      Comments about Remington® Model 1911 R1™:

      This was the first 1911 I bought and I loved how it shot right out of the case! It shoots really accurately. It is a little heavier than my other 1911 but has less kick because of it. Of all the calibers of guns I've shot, this 1911 .45 is one of the most fun to shoot! The best thing is this gun sells at a great price from a great brand. Also I am female and this gun is no issue for me or my sister to shoot!

        Comments about Remington® Model 1911 R1™:

        Great 1911; period. It is styled on the original mil-spec but has the few changes / upgrades which make this a very easy to use, accurate and low recoil pistol. At 7 yards, with my 50 year old eyesight, getting two inch groups is easy.

        My wife shot this pistol and now wants one of her own! Her groups where as good if not better than mine. (although she does have younger eyes).

        If you want a 1911 close to the original, Remington has produced an excellent product which give you the best of both worlds.

        One note: The more you shoot this pistol, the easier it is to breakdown and the easier it is to operate.

        I am now a Remington fan.

          Comments about Remington® Model 1911 R1™:

          Remington outdid itself with this MILSPEC 1911. Mine ran smooth without a single FTF or jam right out of the box during the first 100 rds. I had a new model Series 70 Colt 1911 which had stovepipe jams often, and threw spent hot casings into my head. This Remington did NONE of that. What was more shocking to me was inside and out, the Remington seems to have paid more attention to fit, finish and quality control. My Colt is history. This Remington stays. In my opinion, this is the new best AMERICAN made bare-bones modern 1911, and I've had many others to compare it with.

            This is a great pistol for those who want something in a 1911 but don't want to break the bank. If you don't care about, or you enjoy the classic striped down 1911 style then this gun is yours to enjoy. I have put 3500 rounds of quality as well as dirty remanufactured stuff through it in the first month I owned it (yeah I shoot allot) with no problems. I did read some reviews about mag trouble when researching the gun but I havet had that problem. I did get a cmcmag just as an extra. So if you can skip on the more expensive flashy guns then you have more cash for ammo.
