It's a quality 1911. I have one and two of my friends as well, we are all very happy with the purchase.

I have always liked Remington shotguns. And one of the many 1911 I carried as an US Army MP was a Remington.
I was told by the sales clerk, that the R1 has a "match grade barrel and trigger". I was thinking of the Citidal .45, but when I saw the R1 and how clear the sights were, I was sold. I also looked at a Springfield GI, but with my eyes I needed better sights. Can't wait till Thursday!

good gun...have several thousand rounds through mine. If you are going to shoot many SWC, stick to wilson mags, much more reliable. Never had any trouble with any brand shooting 230gr. Ball.

Any problem with JHP? This will likely be my carry weapon and my XDM will be the "house" weapon.
I know my XDM likes the WWB in both 230 FMJ and JHP.:)
