    If I recall correctly, Remington's R1 had some teething problems.

    I can’t find anything recent on this. Everything I can find says that issue was fixed a few years ago. Can anyone chime in here and give an update on this issue?

    If you want a Remington spend the extra and get the enhanced version. Comes with a target trigger, matched bushing, better sights, nice bluing to name a few things. It's about double the price though but they are a very smooth and accurate gun right out of the box. I couldn't tell you how many thousands of rounds i have through mine now and it's still like new. had it out yesterday and put 160 rounds down range with it. I also have a S&W 1911. It's just a plain gun, not a performance center and while i like it you can't even compare it to the Remington.

    If I was to buy a .45 today, I’d be looking very seriously at the Ruger.

    My 2 cents:

    Along with price, styling, performance.....the next BIG decision maker is "customer service".

    How is Remington's service record?

    It seems lately there are three kinds of customer service/warranties out there. One that's crappy but luckily you seldom need to use it. One that has a 100% guarantee but sadly you need to use it over and over with crappy service. Lastly you have the rarest of all. One that has a great warranty, great service and you rarely need to use it.


    Stamps...I love Ruger and own at least 6 of them but no 1911's. Both of my brothers have owned or do own them plus a few friends have them. They are OK pistols but i didn't notice anything special about them that would make them stand out from the other 100 different kinds of 1911's out there. To me they just seem like a middle of the road basic gun like the S&W, R-1 and a bunch of others. I certainly wouldn't call them cheap or junk either.

    Remington is less than a year out of bankruptcy. They were run into the ground by a private equity firm. I avoid companies when I fear they may soon cease to exist again. The upside is their prices are very low and 1911's can be repaired easily with parts available everywhere.

    Last I heard, fit and finish on the R1 were not impressive. Pretty much an average 1911. I tend to agree with Sauer Heckler regarding Remington.
    Knowing when and how...

    If you are impressed with or need cosmetics, bells and whistles, be prepared to pay for them. These things add little, if anything, to the functionality and dependability of the firearm. And achieving bank vault tolerances may feel impressive, but the cartridge external ballistics remain unchanged.
