    Looks like they caught on and listened to the public. Has a front night sight, checkered front strap, no FCS and comes with a set of great looking half checkered wooden grips. Says the MSRP is $1299, so I could see it selling in the $1100-1150 range.

    Is there any truth to the rumors that Remington is using Filipino frames/slides? They are very tight lipped about their source giving only the usual corporate BS. :dunno:

    I haven't read the article yet, but next time I need to take the Brown's to the Super Bowl or drop the kids off at the pool or in layman's terms, drop a deuce, I'll know more on the subject matter. :rofl:

    I had heard that this gun was made overseas and they stamped a Remington logo on it...I can't find that source but I think I read it over at sig forum.

    Nice looking 1911. Price would have come down for me, too.

    Love Commander size. Will save for one!
     
  10. Nice looking pistola, but I agree with everyone else. $300-$400 too much.

    Is the front strap checkered or they used the cheesy clip-on checkering thingiemajig? I can't tell from the photo.

    That looks nice! If only Ruger would make theirs with front strap checkering and novak night sights or fiber optics

    I like it. Street price will dictate how much I like it. Aeems to high of a price.

    Looks great and lots of good features. I agree with everyone else saying it's a bit too pricey at MSRP.
