I tried to buy a Ruger SR1911 a couple months ago, but the store policy wouldn't hold it during the background check and it got sold out during the delay. They still haven't restocked the Ruger, but at another store I came across the new Remington stainless. When I saw it in person, I actually thought it had a healthier shine and crisper presentation compared to the Ruger. So, now I've got two Remington 1911s. I'm sure I would have been happy with the Ruger 1911, but I know I'm happy now that the Remington Stainless worked out instead.
I switched out the plain Walnut wood grips with G10 grips that have the Remington medallion. While the walnut grips did look good, i think this is a pretty nice upgrade. It came with two stainless 7rd mags, but I have some 10rd mags on order.
Everything functions very nicely and I was comparing it to my Talo Version R1. Same trigger, same hammer tension, same slide. Terrific. Most of my handguns are black, so the stainless really stands out. Between the two, blue and stainless, I think I would select the stainless 1911 as my one preference.
Looking forward to getting to the range!
