Remington R1 Report
Greetings!! I recently bought my first 1911, a Remington R1 .45. I love the old school looks with not all the fancy ribs and such. I just like older things, lol. Anyways, I stripped it down and cleaned and lubed it and finally got it to the range today. I cant be happier with it! I only shot 100 rounds through it but there were no FTF or FTE of any kind. Shoots very pleasant with Remington 230 gr RN. The first target I shot benching it at 25 yards. It shot pretty much perfect side to side but it shoots a few inches low using a 6 oclock hold. OR if I was covering the target with the front sight it shot pretty much dead on. The second target was 2 handed hold benching only my elbows at 25 yards. Then the third target I stood offhand using 1 hand at 25 yards. Fourth target was standing 2 handed at 25 again. I'm stoked about this gun, I love it! Trigger needs a little work but maybe it will smooth out a little with time.
