Remington R1 Range Report.

for those not following, here's the detail pics that i did of the R1
http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1230471

So I went to the range today with Hokieshooter (and his son) and knedrgr (and his brother) so I could get some trigger time on the Remington. I did not do any of my usual work to it, such as lapping the frame and slide with the JB Bore paste slurry, cleaning up the hammer & sear or putting a flat trigger in, just detail stripped, clean and lube. I put about 150rds through the Remington. I didn't have any malfunctions, but knedrgr experienced a strange FTFeed on about the 4th mag in. Mags used were the 2 factory mags and Wilson ETM mags. No issues with either. The trigger has creep in it, but wasn't really noticeable when shooting.

There was no un-usual dis-comfort while gripping the gun, just the same marks i get from shooting a 1911 with a standard grip safety. It wasn't trigger bite, just the grip safety digging into the web of my hand.

Here is a pic of the 1st mag through it. I was shooting 2-handed in an isosceles stance at 7rds to get a feel for it. The first shot was the lonely high shot and the 2nd shot was the one in the 6 (or upside down 9) ring.

1911 Forums

so i did more shooting between the Trophy Match, TRP, EMP, STI Edge, Kobra Carry and Remington, as well as letting sample the different guns.

Now i'm down to my last 18rds, so i send the target out to 15yrds. The first 4rds were high, since i was trying to see where the bullet impact would be with it. The next 2rds were in the 8ring and now i got the elevation correct. the remaining 12 rounds are in the 10/9 ring cluster. The main cluster is <2".

1911 Forums

I shot the knedrgr's mil-spec and at 7yrds, it was shooting ~2" low for me. Compared to the Mil-spec, the sights on the Remington were easier to see/pickup. Over-all i am very impressed with the Remington and feel that if the other's out there are similar to mine, Springfield has stiff competition in the entry level 1911 market.

After putting a couple of magazines through the Remington, I can say it was niiiiiiiice. Actually like the feel better than the TRP IMHO. That is $650 well spent.

After shooting the Kobra Carry, I have decided to sell one of my kidneys on the black market to fund one. I can get by with just one kidney right?

For those of you that haven't shot an EMP, you're missing out. That is a FABULOUS pistola.

FWIW, the EMP was my guinea pig for the flat trigger and 10-8 rear sight.

Yeah the flat triggers took a little adjustment for me. Well, that...and I haven't shot in about 5 years, and haven't shot .45 in at least 10 . Eh, I kept most of them in the head. The sprayed 22LR holes would be from my 12 year old with the M&P. He was squeezing rounds off as fast as he could.

1911 Forums

My .22 holes are in the face and chest. His, well....were a little here and there.

That's great news guys and nice shooting.

I'm really looking forward to picking one up.

If I'm ever out that way, we could do some shooting.

Thanks for the review, Quack.

You've just about sold me on putting a flat trigger in my Spartan.
