Remington 1911 R1 with Enhanced Threaded Barrel

    Two years after buying AAC, Remington are slowly coming to terms with the fact that they are a suppressor manufacturer. They are now selling a version of the R1 1911 Enhanced with a threaded barrel.

    The press release says …

    “The popularity of silencers is soaring,” said John Trull, Vice President of Firearms Product Management and New Product Implementation. “Shooters are looking to enhance their experience with their firearm suppressed and we are proud to offer them an excellent choice with our Model 1911 R1.”

    The Model 1911 R1 Enhanced Threaded Barrel is available today with a suggested retail price of $1040. It is shipped in a custom carrying case with two, eight-round magazines. The barrel is shipped with a thread protector installed.

    The MSRP on Remington’s website is $1140 (not the $1040 as stated in the press release).
