A Legend Returns. Remington first began production of the 1911 pistol almost a century ago. After the outbreak of World War I, the U.S. saw an immediate demand for military weapons. This led to a contract to produce 1911 pistols and by wars end, Remington would go on to produce over 22,000 model 1911's. After the armistice, Remington halted production of the Model 1911. In 2011, Remington announced the reintroduction of their 1911 pistol. Although none of the original tooling is being used, the new Remington R1 is a strong and sensible M191A1 style handgun.

The Remington R1 is the equivalent of most other manufacturer's "G.I." models, but with several modern upgrades. Every element is produced with ultra-tight tolerances on equipment representing the height of modern technology. This American-made 1911 has done away with the original sights and replaced them with simple three-dot combat sights set into dovetails front and back. Remington engineers have built a relatively tight and surprisingly accurate pistol for an affordable price with a decent trigger, even for one with a Series 80 style safety. The R1 also includes modern touches like a beveled magazine well, stainless steel 5" barrel and bushing, along with a throated and polished barrel. The ejection port is marginally lowered and lightly flared to aid reliability. There is also a tiny slot at the top rear of the barrel hood that Remington is calling a loaded-chamber indicator.

The Remington R1 retains many of the traditional G.I. style features found on the early military issue 1911's as well. The government style hammer and slide serrations look much like the original. Similarly, the short style guide rod, slim grip tang safety, slide latch and checkered walnut grips all retain the original classical look and feel of the government forty-five pistol.
The R1 has a short trigger compared to the original UMC’s long trigger, a flat mainspring housing as opposed to arched, and there’s no lanyard loop on the butt. The two seven round magazines provided have improved followers reminiscent of the solid PSI ACT design. Finally, the Remington R1 is finished out in a nice black oxide metal finish.
