Default Remington R1

Just purchased a Remington R1, not enhanced for $725. Seemed like a decent deal. Any thoughts?

I am thinking about the stainless version of the R1 - please let us know how it shoots - range report!

Was the stock GI version. Was debating between the remington or the Taurus pt1911. Remington felt like it was put together better

I really like the tight tolerances of the Remington. I m looking to test-shoot one

That said, my understanding is that the old Colt 45s used by our servicemen in WW2 were loosey-goosey in terms of the slide, not like the stuff we buy today. You could drop them in a mud puddle, pick them up and fire. Kind of like the Remington 870 or AK47....
