    Besides the fact this is dehorned what makes this a carry model? I was expecting/hoping for a 4″ish barrel and lightweight frame or something similar.

  • Danny

    5″ barrel on a carry gun? Maybe they need to name it the R1 Open Carry.

    • KC

      It’s never the barrel length I have problems with; it’s the mag well.

      • Danny

        I’ve CCed a full size 1911 plenty of times, but you can’t say a 4 or 4 1/4″ barrel isn’t more comfortable and preferable. It just doesn’t make sense for Remington to market it as a carry gun when there are plenty of better alternatives from other manufacturers like Smith and Wesson with their PD and SC series.

    • W

      with the 1911, there are no good options for barrels under 5″.

      I know different companies manufacture them. that doesnt make it right. From what I have seen, 1911s with the 3″ barrel are very finicky and unreliable.

  • TheIrateBlackGuy

    Yayyyy another overpriced 1911!!!! Can’t wait to not buy this gun.

    • Didn’t see a price listed there, hoss. But I agree with your general stance. One more 1911 for glossy gun rags to pimp.

    • FormerSFMedic

      As far as 1911’s go, this one won’t be overpriced. The R1’s are all bargain basement. I guess in a way, they are overpriced. Anyways, I wouldn’t buy anything new from Remington, at least not until they start treating American gun owners with some respect!

      • W

        I dont keep up to date with gun manufacturer stuff, but what has Remington done? (its not a condescending question, im just curious)

  • gunslinger

    ok…another gun for people to get upset about. never mind it’s a 1911. never mind it’s a full 5″ barrel.

    although i’m just curious of price.

  • Jesse

    Dang, I bought an R1 just 48 hours ago with the intent of CC. Totally uncool, Remington.

  • John Doe

    “Man I can’t wait for another 1911/AR-15!”
    -no one

  • tony

    Based on the numbers, it is really a duty carry weapon.

  • Nicks87

    Ooooo 1911!!!!

    I got that tingle down my leg again!!!

    Better grab my tac-vest and thigh-rig.

    Oh wait… How much does it cost?

    Nevermind I will stick to Airsoft.

    (^^What just ran through every mall ninja’s head after reading the announcement).

    My dealer website is showing this at $1299 MSRP and dealer price, not much less than that. I hope that will help everyone who is looking. No pictures yet.

    • TheIrateBlackGuy

      Ha!!! 1299????? You have to be kidding me. Word of advice to anyone who is actually insane enough to consider purchasing this firearm: take your money and buy a H&K USP. Seriously.
