Remington R1 Enhanced Double Stack

I had a P14 Para several years ago to raise a little cash for something or other. I've been looking for another ever since. Remington bought Para and the brand disappeared a coup,e of years ago. Remington, however has brought out some double stack models of their own now. I've been looking for one for a while and found one tonight.

it should be here early in the week! It/s just lime Christmas!

Wow, a double stack 1911! I noticed they didn't list the weight for a 15+1 loaded gun, that might be one heavy dude. 3.5 pound trigger pull is nice. Our 1911 is our favorite handgun to shoot.

I have 4 others and they are all great pieces. John Browning was a genius!

Nice! I recently bought a Ruger 1911 and love it, although it is the traditional feed mag

I just wish they were easier to field strip and clean. I bought a cleaning mat with an exploded view of a 1911 which helps me quite a bit to visualize the parts.

I wonder if the magazines are better, the springs were an issue.

I sold my P13 to my best friend because it was a bit large for my hand. The weight would not make a good carry gun for me unless I run a shoulder rig.

But since I sold it to my bud, I still get to shoot it.

I owned both a P13 and a P14 several years ago. The P14 had 3 or 4 thousand rounds through it and I did not have any mag related issues. It ran perfectly.

The P13 had probably a thousand rounds through it with no hiccups......but I could have just been lucky.

I ordered a couple of extra mags to go along with the 2 supplied with the gun. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that these work as good as my old ones did.

My wife carries a Sig P238 mouse gun and Sig had magazine troubles with that model - I forgot if it was fail to feed or eject but they finally got it sorted out.
