New Remington Rebate

Hey Gang, if you're thinking of a new Remington handgun this looks like a great opportunity. I just got this in an e-mail today.

Saw that Monday and immediately ordered a standard 5" R1 from GrabaGun at their $499 (before $100 cash rebate) price.

Bought one two years ago when their price was $529 and the rebate was $75. Thought that was a good deal then.

How is the quality of the Alabama made pistols? On a par with those manufactured in Ilion? That first one (gift for a business associate) had a flawless fit & finish for a "low end" 1911 - I was very surprised then.

I'd like to see more feedback myself. I believe I bought one of the last Ilion R1s in December 2014.

Ordered this one Monday at noon, it was delivered to the FFL Tuesday at 5pm, they called this morning at 9m to notify me for the transfer. Guess they had a big shipment to log in on Wednesday. Anyway, the fit & finish are excellent - no flaws that I can see. Same as the Ilion made one from two years ago.
(hope the picture is right side up)

The prices on them now are just unreal.
The last one I bought was an R1s in 2014. I paid 714 before the 75 dollar rebate.

The rebate for anyone wondering, was every bit of three months of waiting.

Am sending my rebate application in today.

No kidding on the pricing. Even having to pay Texas sales tax, plus $7.99 shipping & $25 FFL transfer brings the pre-rebate total up to $573.15, which isn't bad. So after the $100 rebate, $473 is a steal IMO.
