We have just an R1 and no problems shooting left. You won't have any regrets going with the Remington. Here's a pic of ZGs Rem and my SR1911. Like Trip said and any other gun if your not use to shooting it then it will not perform like it should.
mos people when they own their first one usually end up either buying another one or saving up for the next one.
i will be honest, the 1911 platform is my favorite pistol platform of all of them. there is just something classy about a 1911, that many others just don't have. it's design is timeless and has probably been copied more than any other pistol design.
for over 25 years i have owned at least one 1911 pistol. for some reason i just can't not be without one!
