    Yesterday I picked up a Remington R1s from an almost local gun shop. I could have ordered it for a little less but if I have any problems the in house gun smith takes care of everything for me....Worth the extra IMO.

    Then I wanted to see what black grips looked like on it

    Yes sir!

    I put 100 rounds though it yesterday, not one failure of any kind! I did strip it, clean and re lube it before I shot it. It's shooting 1-2 inches left but had a 2 inch group from 10 yards, I was free hand and I was a little nervous...That a BIG hole at the end of that gun LOL Taking it out again tomorrow and get the sights adjusted then try to shoot propped.

    I'm not a fan of the wood on the SS, just ordered a new set of grips for it....

    Sharp looking 1911! I prefer the wood, though. ;)

    Congrats



    I've had my R1 out once for a shooting session.
    Fed and fired lead wad cutters with no problem. Not a single malfunction.

    Thanks guys, I am loving this gun! Still shooting flawless and I still get a big smile while loading mags with these huge bullets!!!

    I read a lot about the 70 and 80 series safety systems and I was a little worried about having the 80 series but the trigger feels great and I have no complaints. The fact that I never shot one with a 70 series probably helps! I plan on adding a blued one to the collection next year.

    Very nice looking 1911! They are very well made and accurate pistols! Enjoy!
     
  10. I think the black grips look good on a stainless gun.
    Wood looks best on a black or highly polished blued gun. Sort of that retro look.
    Stainless is modern and looks good with modern black or gray grips.
    Just my humble opinion though...
