Lock the slide back and look under the part that overhangs the hammer and see if you can find a little button looking thing in the left side (gun in hand normally) part of the slide

Are you trying to figure out if the gun has a firing pin safety or not, or

Are you trying to figure out what series within the Remington line-up the R1 is?

If you see a button it's an S80, if not S70

Thanks everyone, for the help. Saw the button so I got a Series 80.

Note: Was looking to do some parts upgrade needed to know what Series I have.

I'm unsure if Remington built any series 70 type 1911's since they introduced the R1. I'm not talking about the WWI Remington UMC 1911s. Different beasts.

If you plan on unseries 80 typing your pistol, by removing the s80 bits. Make sure you measure the width of the bits in the frame, so you can get the correct width shim.

If you don't plan on that, disregard.
