I have the opportunity to buy a new R1 stainless from my local gun shop guy for $525. I've read many reviews and theme of most are the same: -shoots accurately -good company service -American made CONS: -Poor finishing work from factory for external surfaces -some models seem flatout flawed causing jams, misfeeds, etc. I'm interested in anyone's thoughts who owns one. This'll be my first 1911 so I'm willing to wait and step up in cost and quality if necessary. This'll just be a plinkin pistol for me.
