    An Excellent Commander, Classic 1911 Style

    Posted by Quentin on Jul 22nd 2015

    After having the Remington 1911 R1 Commander for a couple months I'm pleased with how it looks, feels and shoots. I already had a full size R1 and love the way the standard R1 comes right out of the box, it's almost perfect. The same goes for the Commander size, the only real difference is its 4.25" barrel vs. the Government Model's full length 5" barrel. I like a basic 1911A1 (and don't suffer from hammer bite with either R1 so don't need a beavertail grip safety). At first it seemed strange but I now love Remington's unusual combination of the short A1 trigger and the pre-A1 flat mainspring housing (and even switched to a flat MSH in my 1976 Colt 1911A1 which came with the arched MSH and short trigger - took me 39 years to figure that out!) The WWI style double diamond walnut grips are a plus, they look and feel great - a solid grip but not too sharp. High visibility 3-dot sights, a "match" barrel, and a tight barrel bushing give you under 3" at 25 yards. With younger eyes I could do that with my old Colt Series '70 but now appreciate improved sights over small GI sights. And there's just something about classic Remington 1911s, they just feel better in my hands than other brands. The shorter R1 Commander balances better for me than the full length R1 but both are very comfortable and shootable. It would be hard to find a better classic 1911 for the price. There is a $75 mail in rebate but it expires 7/31.
