    It is me or does a large fiber optic front look odd with a Novak style rear? :dunno:

    Quack,

    Appreciate the heads up....I've been waiting. I guess I'm just one of those nimrods who bought an R1 and loved it, so now I want to complete the collection as long as it goes....Thanks again!

    they should've left the FCS off the enhanced.

    I'd rather have a regular R1, and use that extra $250 for my local Quacksmith to add a Brown GS, TS, hammer, 10-8 rear, and Harrison trigger. You can keep the bigass FO front site and FCS.

    I don't think the enhanced model is for me. Seems like a strange blend of features, and especially the combination of the Novak rear with a high profile fiber optic front.

    I do like the look of the centennial. That said, I think the $1250 msrp is rediculous for the minor changes from the R1.

    I still like my R1. I think the basic model will remain the only Remington for me.

    The trigger looks sloppy as hell. How's the trigger fitment on the standard model?

    the trigger area is overcut. when i fit this trigger, i only took material off the bottom, where normally i would take some off the top and bottom.

    Just a question....

    Do guys who like their 1911 triggers flat also like their women that way? Oh wait was that a improper question to ask? :rofl:
