Looking to get my first 1911. I really want a classic looking 1911 as I've wanted for a long time. After researching a few models I was recommended the Remington R1 1911. Anybody has thoughts or reviews on this model? Thanks

I've read that they have cast frames, doesn't make it bad though, lots of RIA's and ATI's out there with cast frames.
A guy on another forum posted a pic of the barrel bed and it didn't look cut right at all, seems like the way they machined it would lead to premature barrel lug failure. Here's a link:
Not sure if they're all made like that or not but it's simply not made right. Other then that I'd say they'd be decent for the money but for a few bucks more you can get into a Springfield Armory or even a Kimber. JMHO, YMMV.
