Just purchased a Remington R1, not enhanced for $725. Seemed like a decent deal. Any thoughts?
I am thinking about the stainless version of the R1 - please let us know how it shoots - range report!
Is that just the stock GI version?
Just put it on layaway. No pics yet. Not stainless.
Ah! Cool!! Good stuff!
Was the stock GI version. Was debating between the remington or the Taurus pt1911. Remington felt like it was put together better
I really like the tight tolerances of the Remington. I m looking to test-shoot one
That said, my understanding is that the old Colt 45s used by our servicemen in WW2 were loosey-goosey in terms of the slide, not like the stuff we buy today. You could drop them in a mud puddle, pick them up and fire. Kind of like the Remington 870 or AK47....
The ones I had in the Navy in the 80's were loose as all get out! lol
I think i'll be happy with it. Any suggestions on grips or possibly upgrading it?
Best source of reference would be to check Buds Gun Shop online.
With a polish job you should be more than happy with it. $725 isn't a bad price at all. The enhanced version is worth the extra hundred bucks if you don't want to do any work to the gun. The trigger is a bit better and if I remember correctly it has better sights. All in all the r1 is a fantastic gun for the money. I personally still prefer the rock island though and I would avoid the auto ordnance at all cost.
I was considering Rock Island but I figured Remington was good enough for my first 1911. Made in the USA
It's a great gun and definitely nicer looking. You'll be happy with it.
I bought one fue months ago and love it smoothest semi auto pistol I've shot
