This is kind of cool. At the Remington product seminar we were introduced to an original, Remington 1911 from the Remington museum. This is the gun that was used as a design sample for the first version of the Remington 1911 R1. It is shown with a box of Anniversary 1911, .45 Auto ammunition that is available from Remington.
During the seminar several writers questioned the logic of offering a 1911 (Like Remington’s R1) so similar to this original. Sheriff Jim Wilson casually reminded those pistol pontificating writers that a plain old 1911 like this one has put a lot of bad guys in the ground on several continents.
