Looking forward to your range report. I've been thinking of getting one myself.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Not your fault, I just posted it.

Keep us in the loop when your's gets here. I bet you will love it.

Feels as good as my 5" Colt Government and shoots as well!

Great trigger.

I think my poor shipping may have been induced on the seller's end. I got a call when my R1 left Green Bay and they were saying how nice it was and to let them know what I thought about the gun once I had a chance to work it a while.

My bet is that after the turds fondled my "New R1" they forgot to re-wrap it and just threw it back in the case and shipper it.

Let us know if your's arrives with some sort of packing, wrap or what-ever. I bet it does.

I got the opportunity to scrutinize and fondle one yesterday at a local shop. Looks to be a nice, well made piece at a good price. Lotta bang for the buck.

Does it have the same Main Spring Housing issue that Cane put in his range report?

The gun has a flat mainspring housing. (which I prefer).
It is a nice looking gun. One may find its way into my group of 45s sometime soon.

I thought there was something about how the MSH and frame did not match near the bottom (thought there was an image and comment in Cane's report). Otherwise, the reviews I have read have been positive. This being the first Remington model, I wonder what they have in store?
