I have the basic R1 with just as many rounds, if not more, and my experience is the same as yours. Can't beat it for the money.Very nice. I have the limited R1 in OD green. I absolutely love it. I have about 2,500 rounds through mine and have had no issues. I bought this as entry level 1911, that way if I didn't like it I wouldn't have any remorse. I don't know if it's 1911's in general or the Remington, but I love the way this shoots. It's slowly working its way into my EDC. Good luck with this and let us know how it goes at the range.
