well as much as i liked my Springfield Armory XD45, i just traded it and some cash for a new Remington R1 Enhanced. i traded my American Classic II to a longtime close friend last weekend for the XD45, he bought new several months ago and had never even had a chance to shoot. i shot about 30 rounds through it, but i just felt something missing. so earlier this morning i went to my LGS and traded up to an R1. i looked at four different pistols, that were being considered, a stainless steel R1, a black R1, the R1 Enhanced, and a Springfield Armory Range Officer. well feature wise i ended up down to the R1 Enhanced and the Range Officer. it took over an hour to end up making a final decision between the two. as much as i liked the RO, the rear sight was the biggest detractor that ended up swaying the decision to the R1. plus the grips on the R1 are awesome. the prices were $720 for the R1 in black, $760 for the R1 in SS, $870 for the RO and $890 for the Enhanced. th only features that i am not totally excited about on the Enhanced is the front sight and the slide release lever, but those are minor things that can be changed real easy later on. i will in the future end up putting some Trijicon night sights and an extended slide release on it. if everything goes according to plan, i will get some ammo loaded up and try it out. my gun dealer even threw in 150 once fired 45 cases to sweeten the deal. heres a couple of pictures of the new addition to the family!
