Well, my big green case came in today, after much anticipation. I was debating on whether to pick up this first or the EMF Hartford that I also have at my shop. Obviously, I chose the Remington. I'll pick up the EMF over the next couple of months. I just got it home, so I haven't shot it yet, but its an impressive 1911. Slide to frame fit is fairly tight overall for a 1911 of this price, with minimal movement. The black finish is even and very nicely done, as seen in the pics. The grip safety feels a bit on the light side. Its not a problem, but I prefer them to be a bit heavier. The sights are large and easy to use. The trigger seems crisp and I love short aluminum triggers. The wood grips themselves are handsome and set the gun off well. Overall, I find the Remington to be a very good looking 1911. The rollmarks are slightly larger then I prefer, but certainly not obnoxious by any means. The fact that there is an all American 1911 on the market that's nicely done under a big name for $600 is great news. Like I said, I haven't shot it yet, but range reports seem to be going very well so far. The only thing that puzzles me is why Remington felt the need to go series 80 for something like this. Its certainly not a deal breaker, but I would much prefer a series 70. Here are some pics. Please let me know what you think.
