Handled one at a local shop and seemed like a solid $700 gun. Didn't see anything to justify the $800+ price tag. Just depends on what kind of deal you found. For $800 or more, I would spend my money on something else.

many members have the R1's and a few such as myself have the Enhanced model. i chose the Enhanced over the standard model give the features it had. did i feel the price difference was justified? must have, i bought it!
the R1's are solid pistols and very well made and finished. the Enhanced is just a better version of a great pistol. very accurate as well.
many firearms right now are going for MSRP or more, so if you can get a good deal on the R1 Enhanced i would jump on it.
