Default Remington R1 - need opinions

Saw one of these at my LGS today. Anybody have any experience with one? Sure seemed like a nice pistol. Real smooth trigger.

ZG has one and it is a sweet shooter out of the box. We've shoot around 200 rounds through it and no problems so far.

Doyle, i have the R1 Enhanced model. very accurate, fit and finish are excellent and it's a pure pleasure to shoot. MSRP is $940, but i got mine for about $775. the only modification to mine are the grips. it's really a nice pistol and i don't think you would regret buying it. here's mine with the new grips on it.

Didn't go with the enhanced model, but I think this'll do nicely for my 2nd 1911.

This is my R1S. I have about 600 rounds through it now and it has been absolutely flawless. Great trigger right out of the box, too.
