Product Description
remington The Remington Model 1911 R1 Enhanced is manufactured with pride and precision, to the exacting standards you've come to expect from Remington. Every element is produced with ultra-tight tolerances on equipment representing the height of modern technology. Standard R1 features include a crisp trigger, dovetailed front and rear sights, a precision-machined slide and frame, and fine-checkered American walnut grips. The R1 Enhanced has an adjustable rear sight with a red fiber-optic front sight for quick and accurate targeting. The pistol's hammer and wide safety have been enhanced and its mainspring housing is checkered to 20 LPI. Front and rear slide serrations, front grip strap serrations, and a beavertail grip safety with a checkered memory bump make handling easy and comfortable. The grip itself is customized with a thumb groove and cut to be ambidextrous. Match grade stainless barrel and bushing. Anodized aluminum match trigger. Two 8-round magazines with bumper pads included.

    Comments about Remington Model 1911 R1 Enhanced Handgun:

    The only critique I have - and it is a very small one- is that a little bluing has worn off on the grip. I've had the gun since May, and otherwise it functions beautifully. It's American made all the way and I highly recommend it to any 1911 aficionado.

    Comments about Remington Model 1911 R1 Enhanced Handgun:

    Just a ps. on the last review. At 55 years old, the fiber optic front sight works much better for my older eyes than the plain sights. Just a thought for some of you older shooters. This is a beautiful 1911.

    If you are used to 9 millimeter pistols and 40 smiths this will seem heavy at first but give it a day of shooting and it will become your best friend!

      Comments about Remington Model 1911 R1 Enhanced Handgun:

      I've owned several 1911s in my time, but the Remington r1 1911 Enhanced is by far the best.It has all the features you want in a 1911, but it won't completely break your bank account. It shoots beautifully. Have had it since May and have had no malfunctions of any kind- not one hiccup. I like the front fiber optic sight. Yes, it is heavy, but it's a 1911. The weight and size are not a problem when weighed against the stopping power of the .45 and the ergonomics of the Browning design. I plan on buying another in the near future. There are many well made holsters that will accomodate the big Remington, and you can get used to carying it concealed. This is a very sound investment- and it's made in America. You will not go wrong with the Remington Enhanced

      Comments about Remington Model 1911 R1 Enhanced Handgun:

      It's a heavy gun - but it's a 1911 and that's the way they are. Having said that, I'll say there is no other hand gun I'd rather carry to protect myself and my family. My R1 Enhanced has thousands of rounds through it with no misfires - and I can be a slacker when it comes to cleaning it. It doesn't seem to make any difference. It just keeps shooting and blowing the black out of any target in front of it. You could spend more money but you don't need to. In my opinion, this is the one.
