Thnx,! couldn't really make it out, now that you say what it is, yea... but not knowing.. couldnt make up my mind what it read......

did they post an MSRP ?

again, tnx for posting from the show and replying.

I'm thinking my next 1911 buy will be some "enhanced" model, and boy did that strike me as filling the bill.. was looking at an SAinc's models.

OK, tnx.
Been googling for it, but no word out there that I can find about it, as of yet..
Seems you "scooped" the other forums with posting those models...

wOwzaaa then!!!

I guess the pics on the previous page (page2) from the SHOT show yesterday must have been changed, enhanced, and photo-shopped to fool us with all the changes they made on that new "R1 Enhanced" model!

TRICKERY!!! WITCHES - BURN THEM!!!!

LOL they are TEASING us...

what 1911 teasers...

yea, it's gone.

There was a header about the product description paragraph, something like
*** Replace Copy*** or something like that.. so it must have been WIP that we saw...

The sale PDF and such for the enhanced model was just the basic R1 flyer...

R 1

I looked at one at my local gun dealer , although it kind of reminds me of the 1911A1 from colt ,
i wonder is it accurate? well made ?

or just cheapo off the line and must do all kinds of upgrades to it ?

or is it good out of the box and even better after break in ?

I want a second 1911 with no frills no fancies , this gun looks like the one

anyone has one ? is it decent for the price ?

or should i look at kimber again instead ? (or springfield)

Looks great, but I wish the lettering wasn't so large.

I have a 1991A1 colt with the large roll markings.
I too wanted a no frills, 1911A1 repro basically for my 2nd.
I went with the Karh AO1911A1, the roll markings replicate more towards the original found back then. They dont use the slab sides for advertising like everyone else. very clean, true to the old form imho.
I like it... nice shooter. It did need a tweak from Karh, I had it back in a week. And it's been perfect since.
Their Service was first rate.

My next, I'm looking for a clean , but modified out of the box, been looking at SAinc, but this R1 Enhanced has me pulling towards instead.

I have to confess to being a sucker for special editions, even if there isn't anything really special about them. Remington is going to get me on the Centennial.

I'm going to a gun show tomorrow where I planned to see how close I could get to GB and GA prices on an R1 I could handle before buying. Now that I know the Centennial is going to be out this year, I'll watch and wait. I can't help but wonder how many others might do the same -- and how this might affect prices of R1s in dealers' and stores' inventories.

Edit: Whoops! At a MSRP of $1,250 I think I can be happy with a run-of-the mill R1 I'll have purchased during the centennial year. Particularly if prices do drop with the intro of the two new models.

I'm quoting myself...

The gun show I attended was what I consider large -- 550 tables. Among all that merchandise I could find just one lone 1911 R1, which was offered at $599.00. I shied away from it because the left side of the dust cover was perceptively thinner than the right. While I do regard 1911's in this price range to be "kits" requiring final fit and finishing -- which I am comfortable with -- I found this to be a fatal flaw.

I'll keep on looking. To my taste the R1 meets my standards for really clean design. I will have one. But is it unrealistic of me to expect to find a more uniform frame?

nope, seems like the QC can be all over the place, just wait for the one you are happy with and it'll serve you well.

Here's my work in progress. Thanks quack for the recommendation on the Caspian hammer!



EGW hard sear
EB perfection disconnector
EB tactical thumb safety
Wilson grip safety (drop in definitely means non custom fit)
Caspian SS commander hammer
Caspian trik trigger
EB SS grip screws
Hogue Wrap around grips (only temporary junk until my raasco grips come in)
Wilson ringed recoil spring cap
Wolff sear spring
wolff hammer spring

Loving the EB sear jig by the way. The trigger pull after some basic stoning of the relief and smoothing out contact points in the ignition group turned out great!

I suppose common sense would have told me that a drop-in grip safety would never fit the frame very well when switching from a GI style to the beaver tail and commander hammer. I'm guessing the best way to go will be with an EB grip safety and radius jig?

All in all i'm happy. Took her down to my range right after assembly and test fired from 1 round mags all the way to full. All safety checks passed.

The EB sear jig really shined when working on the factory sear in my RIA. Transformed it into a different gun!

Congrats!!!
Looking good and isn't it a great feeling doing some work?

The EB sear jig (when used properly) can make a crappy stock trigger into a nice shooter.

The EB grip safety is the way to go. The frame contour seems to work well with it and after you get down to the jig, not much blending is needed. I used Formula 44/40 to re-blue the grip safety and where I blended the safety.
