Terril gives us a honest aboriginal impressions analysis of the Remington R1 1911 handgun.
U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Remington represents a accurate “jack of all trades” company. The aggregation accomplished bulge acknowledgment to their New Archetypal Army alternation of revolvers during the American Civil War and survived the post-war pistol aridity with their acknowledged Rolling Block rifles. In the aboriginal 20th century, Remington was as aggressive as Colt or Savage in the American blaster market; but over the aftermost several decades the aggregation has focused on their rifles and shotguns. It was not until 2011 that Remington reentered the bazaar back they alien their R1–a 1911 actualization of blaster and one that bent my absorption from its antecedent release.
1911 pistols are a antecedent of annoyance for me. I consistently had a botheration with examination these pistols not as accoutrement but as portals of nostalgia. Further, the arrival of imitations accept decrepit the waters. Anybody and their grandmother is authoritative a 1911 pistol, some good, some not. Cue those who feel the charge to abuse the belvedere with altered cartridges, abbreviate displace triggers, and agitable machining. This is mostly to accommodated demand. Over one hundred years afterwards its introduction, 1911 pistols are aloof as abounding as anytime to accommodated any charge from self-defense, competition, alike hunting. Larboard in the dust is the archetypal “GI” model. I am fatigued to the basal model, agnate to how the pistol was aboriginal introduced. A pistol that is both attractive yet unrefined captivated into one product. No adorned G10 grips, skeletonized parts, adorned finishes, and night sights. Plain walnut grips, blued steel, low contour architect address to me. There are a few acceptable manufacturers of this style, but the Remington accoutrements accept been added abounding on the shelves wherever I appear to be. They absolutely attending nice and the amount was right, so I ultimately bit on the R1.
But would this atmosphere my adverse animosity against a architecture admired by anybody abroad but me?
The accepted Remington R1 represents a abounding sized 1911 pistol boasting a five-inch stainless animate base and blued carbon animate slide, frame, and appointments. The presentation is accomplished off with a brace of checky walnut grips. From a distance, the R1 looks like a accepted GI 1911. And the feel in duke abiding is similar. The R1 is a ample pistol, belief in at two pounds, eight ounces absolutely loaded.
The activate has some texturing to it as well, but it is larboard in-the-white. The well-milled accelerate serrations are in the adapted abode for the deride and forefingers to grip.
The rear of the anchor does not accept the arced base apartment begin on a archetypal World War II archetypal but instead uses a checky collapsed apartment like those begin on aboriginal 1911 models. This gives the anchor a beeline appearance.
Even with these accessory differences, the R1 is a 1911 not alone in anatomy but function. It is a distinct activity handgun, acceptation the handgun’s bang has to be artsy for the pistol to fire. Browning’s bound backside architecture aboriginal acclimated on the 1911 is of advance congenital here. The base tilts bottomward to alleviate beneath backfire and locks back the accelerate campaign avant-garde beneath the burden of the backfire spring. A admirable arrangement that every avant-garde pistol uses today. This archetypal comes in 45 ACP, and the pistol feeds from two of the included seven-round magazines.
My R1 came in its blooming agenda box with included manual, cable lock, two magazines, and a bushing wrench. Afterwards ponying up the banknote for some four hundred fifty circuit of 45 ACP, I went on to booty afar the pistol–my aboriginal time disassembling one in years. Disassembly is added complicated than newer designs but the added times I disassembled the pistol, it became easier. But aboriginal out of the box, the pistol was actual bound and I had to use the included bend to ability off the base bushing so I could booty the accelerate off. I bankrupt and lubed the pistol with my accepted 3-in-1 apparatus oil and that was all the aliment I would go assimilate do. The pistol would go through testing afterwards charwoman or lubrication and it would do bigger than I expected.
The Remington R1 was my aboriginal austere reentry into automated pistols, accepting attempt revolvers for a continued time. I am acclimated to a tucked anchor and a abundant double-action activate pull. A tucked anchor is accidental with an autoloader, and a 1911 has a beard activate by comparison. With that in mind, I started by cutting at a alternation of targets from seven to twenty-five yards with Remington UMC 230 atom FMJ ammunition. Loading the magazines for use was an accessible proposition. The mags are big, the armament is big, and the springs were not too tight. I could get all seven in the annual afterwards any trouble, which isn’t consistently the case in some guns. Slapping the annual into the base of the anchor and agilely cutting the accelerate accommodation the round, admitting at times I forgot about the deride safety–another aspect absent on revolvers–as the pistol can’t be loaded with the assurance on.
Taking a close anchor to abstract the anchor assurance and aiming the pistol to the ambition was organic. Like any 1911, the R1 is a accustomed pointer, and the architect were accessible to aces up. Taking my time offhand, I placed my seven circuit into a two-inch accumulation at seven yards. At twenty-five, the best I could do was six inches. Could I accept done better? Probably. I will bandy out my alibi of ambidextrous with a actual ablaze four and a bisected batter activate cull with actual abbreviate biking and reset. I am tempted to put too abundant feel on the activate to advantage the twelve-pound activate on a revolver, and some of my shots strung out to the ancillary from time to time. The R1 accepted to be a analysis of the fundamentals of activate control. In afterwards sessions, a arrangement developed area my cutting was abhorrent starting but convalescent afterwards on in the day.
Despite the acceptable shooting, I was initially agnostic of the R1 back it came to performance. The backfire of the abundant 45 ACP annular was appealing acclimatized in this beefy pistol, admitting afterwards some one-hundred annular sessions, the web of my easily were accepting raw.
The pistol credibility able-bodied shoots able-bodied and looks acceptable accomplishing it. But that doesn’t beggarly I had no issues. I was added afraid by accepting far beneath issues than I believed. There is a atom of accumbent comedy in the trigger; article advised accustomed for me ability be unacceptable to 1911 aficionados. Regarding malfunctions, I counted three. Three double-feed malfunctions occurred, alert application Remington and PPU 230 atom abounding metal anorak circuit and already while testing some Sig Sauer Elite Achievement 200-grain alveolate points. This leads me to accept there was an extractor defective the adapted astriction but as the anathema of the ambit concluded up showing, it was convalescent by added shooting. [new gun? bending wrist?] Afterwards hitting the two hundred annular mark, I accomplished no problems.
The 1911 served as the accepted activity pistol for the United States armed armament for over seventy-five years. The gun’s band cachet is undeniable, and there is no admiration why there is such a bazaar for it, alike back technology has advanced. Remington fabricated a good, safe best back they chose the 1911 to be their aboriginal re-entry into the blaster market. They accompany addition cast to what is, frankly, an oversaturated market. Budget-friendly 1911s can be a hit or absence affair, and some will argue you charge to absorb bags on a acceptable 1911. But some of us appetite a aftertaste of it afterwards buyer’s remorse. I can’t acquaint you that the Remington is bigger than a Kimber or a Springfield, but what I can say is that I larboard the ambit with a gun that was far smoother of a ballista than what I expected.
