          Comments about Remington 1911 R1 Carry Handgun:

          This is my first 1911. It was amazingly accurate out of the box. My neighbor put his first 2 shots in the same hole at 25 yards. He is a arms instructor however. I was close but not that good. My other .45 (sig P220) though I still love it, cant come close to this for accuracy. Above all it's really fun to shoot. Excellent, what I call balance and comfortable. I could shoot this all day. I may have the 1911 bug. Nice job Remington!

          Comments about Remington 1911 R1 Carry Handgun:

          This gun was smooth as butter. I had absolutely no issues and got 2 compliments on it at the counter by passing customers as I was paying for it. Some kid was shooting his 1911 at the range and was like oh man can I see that one? It doesn't get better. It is absolutely beautiful and mesmerizing. Proud to own one.

            Comments about Remington 1911 R1 Carry Handgun:

            This is a fantastic 1911 considering the price. The R1 carry is nearly as accurate, as well made and as good looking as a custom made 1911 but for less than half the price. As far as 1911s that are below $2,000... this and the Springfield TRP are pretty much the best there are...

            If you have $5,000 to spend then you could go with a Supergrade... or you could buy one of these and save $3,500+ and get a pistol that is almost as good... then use the extra cash for a top of the line AR from Knight's Armament or Noveske.

            I will say that this is the most accurate pistol I own, by a considerable margin... it is really quite astonishing how accurate it is considering the cost.

            The one downside to this pistol is the fact that Remington is new to the 1911 market. All that really means is it hasn't been around for long enough to prove to everyone that it will easily last decades while functioning perfectly... that being said I have no doubt that in 30 years my R1 carry will be more than serviceable. Eventually, as long as Remington keeps making these, they could become one of the more well known and well regarded 1911 models.

            BOTTOM LINE: If you want a 1911 and want to spend less than $1500 then this is your best option.

            The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because in my opinion the only "perfect" 1911s are the Wilson Combat Supergrades...
