Yep, I have the R1 and I love it. I wanted a GI style 1911 to add to my collection after I retired my dad's M1911A1 from range duty.
The Remington is a well made introductory offering from a gun company that hasn't made handguns for quite some time. A few of the members here have shot my R1 and we all agree it is a good solid $600 1911.
Here is the report on my R1:
Impressions on the Remington 1911R1
I received my R1's from one of the first shipments and it did have a few issues. They are discussed in the above thread. I sent the gun back to Remington and it was returned in less than a week with all my concerns resolved. They paid for the freight both ways.
I sent the list of problems and photos with the gun. It's my understanding Remington has addressed these issues and have corrected them in production.
I can recommend the R1 with no hesitation if you are looking for a GI style 1911. Do your self a favor should you buy the R1 and don't order any extra mags. They're junk! Get some Tripps and be happy!
If you want a pretty? 1911, I think the $ bump for a $17 hi-vis front sight, a $35 commander hammer, a $12 three hole trigger and a $40 beavertail don't make the muster. Plus they uglied up the R1's clean looks by adding front slide serrations.
There are a lot of $1K 1911's out there equal or better than the Remington Enhanced. If you are spending that kinda cash get something with a good track record.
