    Remington :supergrin:
    It's a really nice gun, IMO better than the Springfield mil-spec.
    The fit on the one I chose was nice and tight, the other samples had a little play in the slide to frame fit. I know that it shouldn't matter, but since they had a few I asked to see a few of them. Will have more pics once I get home. I'll take it to the range on Saturday when I meet up with Hokieshooter.

    Here's a quick pic

    My dealer was nice enough to e-mail me last night and tell me he just got one in yesterday. He is always doing things like that to me. It is a sharp looking pistol and I will have one.

    I like the subtle advertisement for the multitool.

    It appears to be blued, is it? I like that better than parkerizing.

    Looks pretty nice actually, thanks for posting pics of it. Please post more and some shooting reports when you get a chance...

    What was your shop asking for these, and what shop?

    Thanks guys!!!

    I wasn't planning on buying anything, but I had to have one before Brian :rofl:

    I'm going to take a lot of pics as I break it down, since its new to the market.

    Sticker was $699, but I got it for less ;) but not the $600 street price people were thinking it would go for :(

    It's not parkerized, which I like.

    Yeah, once I saw the dealer cost, I knew $600 wasn't going to happen.

    I just came back from my dealer (I was picking up a new 1911) and he let me fondle the new Remington. Me really like. I do wish it had an arched MSH on it. He has it priced at $649.95. I told him I just need to find a way to pay for it now. I have already spent my spare cash. I may have to put it on layaway. What to do? Hmmmmm?

    +1. the one i looked at was crap.

    i noticed quack's doesn't have a lanyard loop like the one i saw as well.

    i do like it's features, if i can find one fitted like quack's, i might be inclined to purchase it :)



    hey quack, is the grip safety curve more rounded on yours? any discomfort when gripping? i saw a pic of one on 1911forum, and it seemed less sharp, and more rounded. (where the web of your hand rests). this one also had a "standard" style thumb safety (like the mil spec's), unlike the "GI" style one on yours. (they must be mixing and matching parts)

    thanx :)

    Well, if you think it may be a while before they get another, I'd set it aside. :)

    I may not pick mine up for a while after it comes in. I've spent a boat load of cash on 1911s this month and I still have two more to go. :wow:
