I actually did the same thing but bought the R1 first and my "Colt Combat Elite" (O8011XSE) is on it's way, should have it Tuesday or Wednesday
Here's a stock photo of it (i'll post more picture of mine soon)

I think most people probably know that but it would surprise you how many people I have ran across on the www that don't know or just say they don't. I don't care who made it, the one I have is a fantastic gun. I wish they would come out with a Commander length but the last time I talked with ERPC the told me that they didn't plan on a Commander style just different caliber 5 incher's. We can only hope.

I just bought one and I love. I'm having two issues with it though, like already stated the slide release is to far ahead and at 25 yards with 230 gr fmj I'm shooting low 10 inches. Although I've only put 10 rounds through it so I know that the barrel is still not broken in fully yet. For the break in I'm shooting one and then cleaning. I put out a target and am getting good groups so far but low.

One man's opinion says: barrel break in with a 1911 is inconsequential

In other words, I think the one shot, clean, one shot, clean routine is a waste of time with a low pressure pistol cartridge.
Will it hurt anything?
Probably not, depending on your methods.

Mine shoots the 200 gr swc's almost to point of aim. They are pretty much on for elevation but about 2 inches to the left at 25 yds. After about 2k rounds it looks like I would adjust it to the right a little.

Ok I'm new to pistols, I'm use to rifles, setting up for accuracy.

I would agree with neilage66, I don't think it would hurt unless done wrong then again it might help if there is some leading.

Understood, I'm glad to hear you are enjoying your R1.
I predict it will be even more enjoyable when you can deliberately blaze away without thought of barrel break in.

I don't think there will be much leading with low pressure FMJ but there will likely be some burnishing and deburring at the microscopic level. These are potentially good things.
