I've sold quite a few of them and I haven't seen any problems out of them. For a hundred more bucks, you'll be pretty close to getting into a Kimber though.

So you're wanting a pistol that is modeled after the original 1911? If you want that, I'd recommend the Springfield GI model. If you like the Remington, it's a nice pistol from what I've sold and seen. Just don't get a Colt or Taurus. The former you're paying for "Colt" written on the gun and there are better guns for cheaper. The latter, I see more problems out of than other guns.

i had a colt defender, gave it to my son. i have a colt 1991 blued, both shoot right on target no problems. i guess you mean colt isnt as good as years before. the rem just loked good and felt good in my hands . i would hate to spend the money and disapointed. all of the time would prefer to shoot a gun before i bought it, with a new one that just isnt possible....thanks preach

A friend of mine put several hundred rounds through a pre-production R1 1911 (with a friend of his that is a factory rep). He told me it was smooth, accurate, well built and assembled and they had zero malfunctions with the factory mags and 230gr ball ammo and it was as tight as his Springfield 1911. The fit & finish were on par with Springer, Kimber and others and upon disassembly he said the internals were well made, polished and fitted. In his opinion he told me it was a very good piece for the money.

Yeah, that's what I'm saying. They don't have problems, but they're loose and rattly. You pay for the name with Colt. From what I've seen with the Remington, you'll be just fine.

I've been debating which 1911 to buy for a while myself. It's been quite a while, since money has been an issue as much as the choice in guns.I was leaning towards a Springfield, then the Remington came out. I've read nothing but good things about it and I would like to buy a US made gun (the Springfield models I was looking at were imported). Now Ruger has entered the picture with their 1911. It seem to have all the added features I want over a basic GI model, at a reasonable price. It even has a series 70 safety ( The Remington uses the series 80 type) My biggest problem has been finding one to look at in a local shop. My main dealer said Ruger can't crank them out fast enough.
