I'd love to have one, but I'd have to sell some stuff to afford one. Even then, it's probably not on the California DOJ "approved" handgun list yet.

That's one reason I'll probably not move to California. I don't know the full gun laws but they seem incredibly inconvenient. I should probably learn more about Series 70 and Series 80 versions before I make any assumptions on the gun. So far though, it seems rather amazing.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I just researched the difference between the Series 70 and Series 80 parts. Some may not like the series 80, but until I fire one myself, the Remington 1911 R-1 sounds like my kind of gun for sure.

If anyone else would like to know the difference I can provide a link.

The link is from another forum though, and I'm not sure if it's legal to link so I won't without consent.

Thank you Cane. It's nice to see a picture of the actual workings. I read an extensive article of the Series 70 and Series 80's history, changes, and overall workings, but the picture definitely helps to show me what the article was telling me.

When I turn 21, if I don't have another 1911 in mind (I haven't had one in mind until this one so the odds of it changing are slim) then I'll definitely buy this gun. For sure!

I am going to have to keep an eye on this one. I am in the market to buy my very first M1911A1 sometime in the near future. I am looking for one that is affordable, but not crap. I will be looking forward to your range report Cane to see whether or not this pistol should be considered for a first time M1911A1.

Default Remington 1911R1

I found this site for the 1911R1... www.1911r1.com .

Hope this isn't redundant.
