    Just picked up a new Remington 1911R1 would post pic but my phone app keeps crashing. I got the two tone black and od green one. Looking forward to getting out and putting a few round down range.

    Looks nice!
    I really like the OD/Black two-tone. :)

    I'm hearing some good things about them. When they first came out it was kinda hit & miss, but that's to be expected with new manufacturer, new employees getting used to production machines, etc. Let us know how it does.

    Love the two tone! I'm a brand new owner of a mil spec style myself, picked up a springfield yesterday! Is this your first 1911 too? It is for me, now I'm wondering what the hell took me so long.

    I have had a few others in the past but this is by far the nicest one I have owned. My girlfriend got it for me for Valentines day.

    Hell, I'm already planning my next one. Guess I'll build it myself. I have a list of about $1400 worth of parts. Probably take me about two years if I buy a couple parts every other week. Most of them only cost between $1-$40. I'd go for a mutt look, with a bunch of mixed up finishes on different parts.

    I didn't know they came in a 2-tone. Nice choice.
    Wish I had one.
