Remington's latest 1911

This came into my shop today, a customer thought I might like it. It's a new Remington R1 10mm long slide in Bronze. I looked it over and it's very nicely made. So I took a couple of pics for you guys. Remington's latest 1911-imageuploadedbyoutdoor-forums1478274822.294275.jpgRemington's latest 1911-imageuploadedbyoutdoor-forums1478274857.199300.jpg

PLEASE let their QC be MUCH improved over the R51 debacle.

Gripper I sure hope so. Boy the 51 was a true debacle for sure. I suspect this gun will be fine. I personally don't do much work on 1911's but the slide fit is excellent and barrel lock up was perfect, the trigger breaks clean at about 4lbs. If it shoots as nice as it looks they will have a winner on their hands.

During the '78 IPSC natl's near LA, A friend took me to Jim Hoag's shop and he showed us the set of long slides he'd made, reported on in a G and A article. He (or someone) did beautiful work. I saw several other people working in his shop, one in particular doing the checkering on frame straps. Anyone paying high prices for "Hoag's" work was getting screwed, just like the people who bought "Bob Loveless's handmade" knives, when Loveless had a dozen men working in his shop! :-)
