Default Remington R1

I recently got the Remington R1 OD slide. Limited edition
Well to start can I add a Skeletonized(spelling)
Trigger and hammer like on the loaded model Springfield has?

Like this? You can put just about any trigger you want some are drop-ins others take a little fitting

They are nice guns. SA at least the NM guns may hold a slight edge but that is debatable. You got a nice gun and don't worry about comparisons. Shoot the SH$T out of it and enjoy!!!!!

Looks like it has smudges all over it, like alot of people have handled it and it never got wiped down. I would be a little disappointed too, Hopefully it shoots good, the other things are an easy fix.

Well, look at this way, a call to Remington should result in a set of G10's coming to your door so you get a FREE pair of Coccobolo grips!

Gotta look on the bright side dude!

Nice Gun
