    I just bought and picked up today a brand new Remington 1911 R1S. It's completely stock although I do got some custom grips on order for it. This is my very first 1911.

    That is a nice looking 1911. They had one at my LGS. If I had the funds I would have bought it.

    Thanks for all replies and yes it is a beauty. I shot 100 rounds through it today and my dad shot 50. My aim is much better than with any other firearm I've used. It is my new favorite gun, even beats my Glock. The action is buttery smooth and the recoil is no where near as snappy. I'm very pleased with it. I got some new grips already ordered. I will post new pics once I get them installed.

    Biker nice one! i looked at that one last week and really was liking it a lot, but ended up buying the R1 Enhanced instead. mine is very accurate and seems very well built. i am very pleased with my decision to buy it. now if they would offer the R1 Enhanced in S/S like yours. that would be awesome! enjoy it.

    yeah I took mine to the range Saturday is is very accurate, more so then any other firearm I've shot. Had a blast with it, although it was a pain to get it clean afterwards. The stainless really shows the gun powder, especially after putting 150 rounds through it. I picked mine up for $690 before tax, $740 after tax. I also picked up a 3rd mag (stainless steel 8 round) for $26 after tax. I think it was well worth it though as it was just a pure pleasure to shoot.

    Must be nice, I ended up driving 50 miles away just to get this one for that price, the cheapest around me was $730 before tax.

    I absolutely love my R1! I got mine here in Rhode Island for 620+ tax. It is the standard R1. have about 500 rounds thru it and so far no problems. Functions perfectly with every different ammo I have used so far.

    Now my only problem is, I want to collect the whole set, need to start saving for the s/s and the enhanced!

    Nice grips! I love Patriot theme stuff.

    In the revolutionary war days and the colonial days, flowers were considered masculine. I'd like to see that come around again. Real men aren't afraid of flowers. ;)

    I agree real men aren't afraid of flowers, the color pink or anything else usually assorted to women. That don't mean I like any of it as personally I don't like the color pink or anything, but it was just a spare sheet I had laying around when my other when got torn up.
