Remington R1 detail strip pics




So i detail stripped the the R1 this morning. here are the pics.







the ejector is sunk in a little so there is a strange shadow from the slide making it look like it's stepped.

Excellent; thanks for the photos. How do you feel it stacks up for the price?

for the price, i think it will give Springfield a run for their money.
I'll take it to the range on saturday.

Initial impressions is that it is well fit, with no vertical movement of the slide. The mil-spec's that i looked at all had movement. FWIW, this was the 3rd Remington that i looked at in the shop, the other 2 had movement like the Springer.

bushing fit is tight. and lock-up is good. The mil-spec's i've looked at had loose bushings.

i did notice that the hammer is fairly tight in the slide. mil-spec's were loose.

the hammer hooks were a little over .020" (didn't have my feeler gauge, just had my .020") and one side was a little longer, but no worse than i've seen in the mil-spec or Citadel. the Mil-spec and Citadel that i worked on had the .024" hammer hooks. The hooks on the Remington were .022" at most.

machining was ok, though all the marks may bother people. the dust cover is slightly off, but you can't really tell with the naked eye (all pics were with a macro lens).

not sure why the ejector was recessed, but it was pinned unlike the SA's

the extractor was flush and tight, as well as the firing pin stop

Trigger is decent, much better out of the box than a friends mil-spec. The mil-spec had more creep and was a heavier.

the sear spring was similar to the Colt sear spring.

the trigger itself had vertical play. i dropped in one of my flat triggers and while it had no play, there was a decent gap at the top of the trigger to the frame. a friend's mil-spec had burr's/rough machining of the trigger track.

the front sight is dovetailed, but i'm used to seeing the roll pin at the front of the sight and not at the rear near the dot.

also like the finish, don't care for parkerized and didn't want a SS finish on this type of 1911.

Cast frame, cast hammer (looks like), cast grip safety, MIM sear & disconnector, rough feedramp & multiple toolmarks.
That answers some questions many of us had, thanks.
Good photos.

the barrel at the muzzle was .579" and the rest of the barrel is .575"
the ID of the barrel bushing is .579"
