    Remington 1911 R1 Thoughts and or Caveats

    Anyone have any experience with the Remington 1911 R1 caveats etc?

    I am considering one but would really like to get some solid input before I blindly plunk down the dough.

    Thank you,

    I have read in other forums, that, for the price, its a good gun. However, I do not have any experience with it myself.
    A CCW is like a parachute; if you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    I was lucky enough to fire one in June when they had it avaiable for demo at an IDPA match in N.C. Picked it up and cleaned a plate rack with it at 15 yards... nice little shooter.

    it is built very much to the M1911A1 specs, short trigger, short safety spur, etc. which I am not, personally as fan of, as I am more familiar with my Kimbers (longer trigger, safety, etc.).

    But it felt pretty good to shoot. YMMV

    Another 1911? I guess they're working on a pocket .380 too?

    Really, I wouldn't mind having one.

    Looks a bit like the Springfield Mil-Spec with a couple less features.

    Thanks for the replies. After reading around the 'net, I think the Springfield GI is a better offering since they both can be had for around the same money if you shop. The most mentioned comments were complaints about poor machining. Not so much QC issues but just fit and finish. On site had some close-up images and they were some definate
    finish issues.

    While I know absolutely nothing about machining, I do have customers who are machining and fabrication shops. All I do is keep their machines up and running. But I do know the difference in a quality finish and one not quiet so.

    Again, thank you all for you input. As always, quality help and advice is easily found here at DC.

    Best!
