Re: New Remington 1911 R1?!
This is their re-entry attempt. To catch some sales in light of the AR and 1911 craze.
The guns are actually built in Ilion NY by an outside firm, at least that is what I've heard. This model is more like a basic GI model and it has the series 80 safeties.
I think its cool, but not for me. If I buy a 1911 I want it to function with all types of ammo, not just hardball. I would have been more impressed to see a hunting type of revolver in 44 mag that doesn't weigh a ton to compete with S&W. But of course at a better price.
The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.
