Excellent news Cane!

I know you to be a man of your word and I know you shoot us straight.

From your experience in your past working life I expect to see one hell of a truthful, well thought out and comprehensive Range Report that will give everyone a real idea of how good this pistol really is.

I, for one, am really looking forward to it.

JD

I am gonna "ditto" what JD said.

What kind of upgrades do you have planned, if any? I can see changing the hammer, trigger and maybe barrel bushing. Of course, I know you are gonna get some 8 round Tripps mags for it, and some kind of rattle snake grips. Just keep us posted, brother.

Looks like a nicely finished firarm... bet it's going to get some Wild Bunch shooters looking at it.

You are a lucky pack of B******DS by the time these get downunder we'll be looking at about AU$1100 if we're lucky!!!

I'm pretty sure that this is Remingtons first 1911. The Remington Rand 1911 made in WWII was made by the typewriter and adding machine company only for the war effort. Thay did however make nearly as many as Colt and Ithica combined during WWII, thats why there are so many of them still around.

Got a very interesting call from the owner of my local gun store today...
He asks me if I can stop by this evening and bring my Walther P22 that I have mentioned wanting to trade.
Still confused, I told him that it would be tight, but I'll try.
Just got back....














According to the store owner 2 R1's trickled in today. He wanted me to have the first one sold from his store, plus he wanted my P22 that I mentioned I wanted to trade for the Remmy R1. He (store owner) is keeping the other R1 for his own collection.
He gave me a pretty good price for my P22 ( more than what I was expecting). It's nice to have friends in high places!!
Remington 1911R1 NIB: $619+ tax minus P22 trade.
When I got home I checked the ammo box. Yes, I do have plenty of .45ACP ammo. Goin' to the range this weekend!! To be continued...
Eat your hearts out guys!!

Thanks bros!!

skull,
I know, right
I'm all worried if I'm goin' to get one before they become hard to find or worse back-ordered.
Just to find out that I have someone looking out for me.
That's how it felt comin' home last night...like I fell "into a bed of thornless roses for once".
I cleaned & lubed it tonight, fondled it and fondled it some more.
It's very tight & well made. Not as tight as a competition 1911, but tight.
The wife saw it tonight and handled it...she says she could get use to that.
Back-OFF Woman
Last night she didn't know what to think...I come home in a blazin' rush, fly through the house, grab a pistol (Walther P22) put it into a plastic case and tell her "I gotta go" and rush off.

Thanks!!
I DO like Remington products.
I wouldn't be able to fit all my Remington firearms, shirts, hats, etc in just one picture.
For Father's Day I'm goin' to the range and try out my new gift.
Range Report will follow.

Wonder if cane has gotten his yet?
...cane?
