Remington® Model 1911 R1™ Pistol
Is my first 1911. Have a S&W .40 and it doesn't even compare to the 1911. Fell in love with it after the first clip. The grouping was excellent. The trigger pull was very easy, which didn't make me pull her offline. The recovery from recoil was wonderful. I was able to fire prettily rapidly and still stay on target. Had 1 jam which was pretty easy to clear and know can happen from time to time, but overall is a wonderful functioning gun and would absolutely recommend it for the price. Would post a pic of my first grouping if possible, but trust me, was very tight at about 12 yards. Is excellent.

A great first 911
i just purchased this pistol.if anyone is buying their ist 1911 this is it. i own 3 others but this one tops them all. great trigger pull and although it has fixed sights the white dots on them are very pronounced. very accurate. shot very good groups at 50 ft right out of the box. if you can afford it at $699.00 ..buy it!!

1 of the best 1911's
This is a truly tough gun. I carry it everyday in a nylon belt holster on my side. Been through brush while hunting. Was under water for almost 4 hours on a canoe trip when I got caught up on a log jam and lost the boat. Out of curiosity, I shot a full mag just to see what would happen. Not a single hiccup. Would definitely trust my life as well as my families with it.

Ok for the money
I got this particular model like 2 year's a go, they didn't had the stainless model, at least I didn't see it in display.
Gun look and feel really nice especially compared with other higher priced brands, it shoot pretty accurate from the box, now in my particular case, it jam on me after the 4th round almost in every magazine, I call Remington (best customer service ever by the way) the next day I had a shipping box and paid postage, 4 day's later, I had it back in my hands, took it to the range and it continued having the same issue after 5/6 rounds and again almost every magazine, I use different ammo that time and nothing, I ended up selling it :(
It may be just one bad apple :(
Hope this help
