I got a chance to fondle and shoot the new Remington 1911 R1 last week.

Thanks for the kind words.

The next "test fire" review will go up Tuesday.

What do you want to see next: The Ruger LCR or S&W M&P Pro in .40?

Thanks for the report. :cool:

[grammar nazi] Just a couple of things I noticed in a quick read-through... if you plan to continue your professional writing career, work on "then" vs. "than."

these sights are much easier to see and use then the original military sights
I think it has more to do with my own lack of familiarity with the pistol and the limited time I had to shoot it then with any failing of the pistol itself.

[/grammar nazi] :)

anybody hazard a guess as to who really makes the gun/parts ?

^^who knows. there's not doubt, however, that they use MIM or cast parts at the pricepoint.

not an issue, if they're quality made......
