I have had numerous 1911's. Two Les Baer, a Colt series seventy, a Taurus, and a new Ruger SR1911. I must say that the R1 surprised me in its flawless functioning with a multitude of various ammunition, from 185 and 230 grain + P hollow points to several different brands of ball ammo and reloads without a single hiccup. The R1 is a nice mix of traditional 1911A1 and more modern features like the stainless barrel bushing (nicely fit), high visibility sights that are much more user friendly than the GI sights and walnut or rosewood grips instead of plastic. I like the fact that it resembles the 1911A1 very closely yet has features that improve the function. The trigger is not a Les Baer but it is a pleasure to shoot for 1/3 the cost. If I had to choose between the Ruger SR1911 and the R1 It would be difficult. If your looking for a classic modern A1 style 1911 I don't know how you could beat the R1. It is a beautifully crafted 1911 for the money.
I purchased an R1 in black and it came with the rosewood grips. The fit and finish are excellent and it feels great in my hand. I've only had the chance to run a couple mags of Russian ammo through it and it was flawless. Not much kick. And it's the best thing at this price point. My friend bought the Springfield Range Officer; paid $200+ more and the only difference I see is the sights (and included holster and mag carriers w/RO). Since I'm not using for competition I'm very happy.
Bought it recently - the workmanship was superior and it was absolutely everything I expected. I have used several types of magazines and 3 different types of ammo with no notable issues what so ever. It's such an iconic weapon .... Very pleased.
My first 1911 was a Colt Series 70 Government Model. I bought it brand new and if you ripped it fast as you could pull the trigger it would jam on the last shell every time. I carried it back to the store I bought it from and was told it needed to be throated out. They sent me to a gunsmith to have it done. He called me when it was ready and I picked it up and went to the range. I ripped the shells off and it jammed on the last bulled again. I reloaded and it done the same thing. This Remington R1 has never had so much as a hiccup since I've had it. The only reason I would trade it for a new Colt would be so I could sell the Colt's and buy 2 more of the R1's. This pistol has zero flaws that I have found, and I'm sure I would have found one by now if I was going to have one, because I've went from the cheap Russian ammo to the best name brands and every shot went bang and with accuracy too.
I bought the r1 a year ago i have a few thousand rounds through it now and have had only one ftf. I am going to buy another one soon maybe the stainless. I would sell my colt before i got rid of the r1.
When I saw the first advertisment, I knew I had to have one. A few months later I finally had it in my hands. The pictures do not do it justice, it is certainly a finely crafted piece. Fit and finish cannot be beat for the price range. The feel of pistol is just right, I am not a fan of overly large beaver tails. This one is true to the original design with upgrades that do not detract from the originality as it is a reproduction of the WWII model produced by Remington and others. If your looking for a 1911 and want to compete with the big boys or not, this is the gun for you.
Back in Febuary I Bought me a R1 and Boy do I ever love it. There is actually some workmanship in it and I compared it to a Kimber 1911 and a Springfield Range Master. The R1 OUT SHOT both the Springfield and the Kimber ( The Kimber malfunctioned once it got to 100 rounds due to getting dirty) The R1 had 1 feed malfunction at the 27th round and has not done it sense. The R1 has a lot going for it and I expect it will be around for quite some time. It out-shoots guns twice it's price, It can use most Colt Parts and did I mention the Price ( I paid $679.99) being reasonable. You really can't go wrong with the R1. I also have 2 700BDL rifles in 25.06 and .300 magnum and the R1 is built just as well as the rifles.
I bought this gun without ever trying it out or even seeing it, because judging by what have read in reviews on the net and in mags, it was going to be worth it. The overall quality and finish are closer to 1911s nearly twice the price. This includes the barrel and barrel bushing. Just compare them to other 1911s under $700. The sights are great and I like that other than these and the flared ejection port, the gun stays nearly identicle to the original design. It is easy to shoot because of the weight and 5" barrel. So far I've put 207 rounds through it, 200 with Remington UMC 230 grain FMJ, and just 7 rounds of Black Hills 230 grain JHP just to see how it would shoot with those as the loaded home defense ammo. It is very accurate and comparing the recoil with my Glock 23, it is noticeably less. The only thing would say is there were two FTFs, first after the inital 48 rounds first time out, then at the second time at the range at 46 rounds. Because not broken in and when the barrell was dirty with powder. Didn't happen after that and I did polish the feed ramp after the FTFs. The trigger which is the standard short 1911 like the orgianals, would prefer it to be longer, so may try a different comp trigger. I'm sure this mainly has to do with being used to and prefering the Glock trigger system. It's not as easy to shoot rapid fire shots with the R1 of course. Other than polishing the feed ramp only thing have done is bought two Mec-Gar 8 round mags that fit and worked flawlessy last 50 rounds. I really like this gun. It is not for concealed carry, that is what my Glock is for and for me is too big and heavy, but that's not why got the R1 in the first place. It's just a legendary pistol that was ahead of its time, and is like owning a piece of history, besides the .45 ACP round being the ultimate stopper!
