I have been waiting for the R1 1911 to come in for 2 months or so, finally got to look at one this week. I like the big sights, non-plastic trigger and MSH, and overall the only thing I noticed without stripping it was that the ejector was below flush w/the back of the slide. I was impressed for only $570 + tax. The problem is I do not have unlimited funds, and the 1911s I already have: -Delta elite, havn't fired yet -Colt 1918, got because I liked the look and no other brand I know of makes one that looks just like it, I shoot it on rare occasions -Kimber Ulta carry, which I'll sell when my Compact Stainless arrives -Para 'GI Expert', which I hate because of the crappy customer service I gotr from them; runs and shoots good now & I figure I'm better off keeping it as a beater unless I could sell w/out taking a beating I have decided rather than spending $1200+ on a TRP or something similar and still not get exactly what I want, I would rather save up the $2000+ (eventually) and get a Novak's or Nighthawk custom. So convince me to get the Remington that I really like, or stop screwing around with low end guns, be patient, and save the money for something that is exactly what I want.
