Well, after already having 4 Glocks in my collection along with several other brands/styles. I thought it was time to add my first .45 and first 1911. I've been eyeing them for a couple years and just couldn't decide which one to buy. I ended up with the Remington R1. Fit and finish is good, reviews have been good and above all else, the price was right. I picked it up a week ago and haven't taken it to the range yet, plan on it this week sometime.

Great looking gun! Not a fan of firing pin blocks but the remington gets good reviews!

Post up a report once you get some range time. Does it have night sites on it? If no you gonna get some?

Also did you consider the stainless model?

Ps I'm in the market for one but hesitate spending 1500 on a Wesson valor or kimber raptor which is what I like but that r1 is super clean and classic looking.

Took the Remington R1, my wife and 16 year old daughter to the range. I let them shoot my wifes Glock for a while then it was my turn with the R1. I shot a few mags and then my daughter wanted to shot it. The only FTF was with my daughter, probably limp wristing it. We both loved it. Groups were really good. I like this 1911. It is my first, and won't be my last. I like this platform, and the holes it punches in the paper are nice, I would hate to be hit with it.
I do not have night sights on it...yet. I would like to put some optic sights on. This will be a range gun only for now, so night sights will not be needed, but would like to have the extra visibility with the optics.
I did not consider the SS model. I like the look of the black, reminds me of the originals, like my grandfather had.
This is a great gun for under $700. If you have a bigger budget, then by all means, look into the custom fields, STI makes some great ones with a superb warranty backing. Just my thoughts.

Thanks for the info. Yeah, I could be in the budget for something more expensive but I could spend a lot less and still be very happy.i think I would like the black too.

I like mine also. Even though they might be considered "entry level" I think they look like a more expensive 1911 than their price point. Shoot quite well also. A good value for the money.

Trigger and hammer factor or aftermarket?


I don't mind the ring hammer, but don't like the look of that trigger :(


Sorry :(

Nice gun, maybe next time get a Commander sized gun!? Try lifting it to eye level with arm outstretched...does the sights line up naturally? Mine do with my 1991 Commander, so I put a trijicon front sight on it and left the rear fixed sight alone. Works like a charm and the night sight is easy as pie to see. I have the same set up on a SP101 and a model 10S&W. If you want a little bit hotter 230gr ball ammo load, try Fiocchi...they work great!
