Have any of you heard anything about this gun? It sounds almost too good to be true for my personal tastes. Its supposed to hit stores around February.

Been watching what I can find on it for a few weeks now and my general/store gun shop has one on there wholesalers want list for me as info and price is shown, probably from sport south. So hopefully I am in early enough maybe I can get on out of the first production run? Even been given a price by my dealer that may might up.

I'm gonna talk to my local gun stores today and ask if they're gonna have any in stock when they come out.

I'd really like to hold the gun before determining if I want it, like all my purchases.

However, at this gun's price point I might just say eff that and order it even if I can't hold it?

I tend to not get stuck one a design or feel and they mostly all feel fine after 500 rounds , well other than those black bricks known as glocks. Gona go ahead and try one and break it in then make a call if it becomes a carry pistol or if my wife steals it for hers. She does that. HA

Very interesting. Not sure I would get one right away but it probably would be tempting. I would like to see more guns made with triggers that go straight back like a 1911

I'd be interested in one. Looks pretty interesting.

I guess Remington is wanting to get back into the handgun market. First they started making the 1911R1s, and now this.

In the age of Glocks, XDM's, and M&P's; that is one beautiful gun. Looks like Remington is investing a little more money in design than the average gun company.

MSRP is $389, and they plan on coming out with a 40 S&W version soon.

Not bad at all.
