Stainless Remington R1

For 2012 Remington will be offering a stainless version of their R1, 1911 in .45 Auto. This is a nice looking pistol. Though, I’m sure we will hear the same complaints about the features Remington chose to exclude like a beaver-tail grip safety, ambi-safety and who knows what else. For those things, turn to the Enhanced Remington R1. Remington does not seemed too concerned about all this fuss, seeing as how they are selling their original R1 as fast as they can make it. I’m betting this stainless version will sell well too.
