To get back to the OP's question, I have a Rem. R1 with 1395 shots through it. The gun goes bang with every trigger pull and that includes ball, LSWC and the only hollowpoint I've tried, 230 gr Golden Sabre.

My pistol can be picky as to magazines, all have fed, but some Metalforms will not hold the slide back after the last shot and will stick so I have to use a screw driver to get them out. I have 4 Remington mags and all have been 100% as have a couple of Wilsons.

If I have one complaint, it's the series 80 trigger. In all fairness it has vastly improved over the 1395 rounds.

So I can recommend the R1, but if you can find a Ruger SR1911 or Colt new roll marked 1991 I'd pick them.

R1

[QUOTE=tua05737;18830771]Looking to get my first 1911. I really want a classic looking 1911 as I've wanted for a long time. After researching a few models I was recommended the Remington R1 1911. Anybody has thoughts or reviews on this model? Thanks

I like mine. You have to value a gun in it's price range. For $595 it is a very good value. Does not jam, good accuracy. That is what you are hoping for in an entry level gun. A series 80 in that price range is not going to have the trigger of a custom gun, natch. Better looking than the average gun in that price range also imo.

Don't know why it'd be hard to believe. Like others you "assume" that you know me and make judgments about me without knowing me at all.

Not sure that an "idiot scratch" is and my sig line listed my TWO current firearms, a S&W 642-2, 38spl and an ATI 1911GI-E. Not sure were you got three from.

IF it were an O.D. Green Glock you'd have folks lined up to buy it.

I don't think you will get near the product support out of Remington that would from Springfield. Any entry level 1911 may need some tweaking and Springfield is good about taking care of their customers.

Through personal experience (Including just recently with an r1 enhanced) I can say while Remington's customer service is not BAD.... It certainly is far from GOOD!

Then I will have to sell that holster I bought from you back to you?

That's why all the OD Glocks were selling for $300-350 until they were all gone. No one wanted one. So Glock flushed them. Then, when all the people who didn't want them to begin with realized that they were no longer available, once again due to piss poor sales, they became all the rage for collectors and their prices went through the roof.
