Can't speak to the SA. However, I do own and R1. It's a very nice basic .45ACP 1911. I don't regret buying it and most likely will keep it. I had the trigger slicked up and night sights installed...

I bought one not too long after they came out. Must've been one that was either fixed or I got lucky. I've had absolutely no problems in the short time that I owned it.

Wow, this is a very interesting thread. I've learned quite a bit from it. But, it seems almost as if it turned into a Colt/SA/Kimber thread.

I have two 1911 based pistols.

One, .45ACP, is a...

I've got one of the new Remington R1 1911s. It's a nice gun and you can find them pretty easy under $600 new. I paid just over $560.00 OTD for mine about 8 months ago. It doesn't have a lot of the...

50 yards is a good distance. I personally use 75 as I find it works best for me. 100 is OK if you're doing most of your shooting at 100 yards. However, as has been stated, you'll be a little high...
