This is a great shooter have shot many different kinds of shells through it an not a flaw one with it right on the money at differents yards. I would buy again.
Since my military days of the '60s always wanted a 1911. Before purchasing my R1, considered the Ruger, Springfield Armory (rented one of these) and Rock Island. Finally got a R1 in my hands and loved the fit and finish. I bought it. My first trip to the range was very impressive, crisp trigger, great sites, and unbelievable accuracy for first attempts. Several range trips later and I am more enthused than ever. For the price it can't be beat!
I was shopping for a 1911 and I had my heart set on the Springfield GI model in OD Green. I went to my usual gun store to check it out but they didn't have one in stock. I looked at several other brands but I didn't like any of them until I put the Remington R1 in my hand. It felt like an extension of my hand it was so comfortable. I still wanted to see the GI so I didn't buy the R1. I went back to the store when they got the GI back in stock but it came in second to the R1 due to the military type sights it had. My eyes just couldn't focus on them because they were so short. I didn't have any difficulty seeing the Remington's sights so I bought it. It has not had a single malfunction as of yet and I don't anticipate any. I have used most all brands of ammo from the cheap Russian TulAmmo to the high priced stuff and it ate 'em up and spit 'em out with no problem. In my opinion the Remington R1 rates "Best In Class" because as George Jones used to sing, "There's Nothing Better Once You've Had The Best".
I've had my Remington R1 about a year and found two issues that were easily corrected. 1 - It would have hollow points hang up in the feed ramp once in a while. This was easily corrected by polishing the feed ramp by hand for 20 minutes with rubbing compound on a patch. The ramp had some machine marks cross-wise to the feed direction. Problem solved. The other was the Remington magazines sometimes lost the last round, causing a feed failure on the last round. I got some Kimber magazines. They have a dimple on the follower that ensures the last round is retained until it supposed to be stripped off. That resolved those jams. Otherwise a good shooting 1911 and way tighter than the old ones I used on active duty.
Immediately upon picking it up I knew I had to have it. It felt just like the 1911's I carried during my military career. 800 Plus rounds through it and not a single FTF, FTE. An amazing weapon for a reasonable price. I bought it to use as a secondary backup to my Kimber and Springfield 1911's but I'd feel confident to carry this as my primary. This is a tight fitting, accurate pistol with a crisp trigger.
This is the second 1911 that I have purchased, Perfect. I picked it up about a month ago I have ran over 300 rounds through it, Flawless. It came with rosewood grips, Have had absolutely zero issues with it. I will be using it as my carry piece. have had 2 inch groupings at 25 yards. It even impressed the folks at my local shooting range with the accuracy.
I ve had this gun for a year less then 300 rounds but no hiccups anyone interested should consider this gun for home sport and carry remember you dont need high cap mags just knowledge practice and respect as a gun owner oh and trow in a 12 guage 18 inch shotgun and your good to go.
I have had this 45 for a month and have put through two hundred rounds. Great. Using a flat line of sight it shoots low (target set at 15 yards)but by bringing up the front a bit all is well. I am used to it now. This was a good buy.
I carried a model 1911 45 ACP for many years when I was in the Marines. They were made by USS, Colt, and Remington. They were well used and very loose. In recent years I have been shooting 9mm, 40 cal S&W ,, and 380 for personal protection. Last month I had the opportunity to purchase the new Remington 1911 A1. This gun is tight and I am shooting a 2" group at police 30 yard targets. The recoil is less than my 9mm Glock 17 and. does this at a very gentle recoil behavior . This is the most comfortable pistol I have ever owned and shot. A great gun.
