It was not as accurate as the R1E, but would still group 8 shots in a big cloverleaf from 10 yards firing offhand. With my R1E I can half that and consistently ping off spent 12 gauge hulls at that distance. The fiber optic sight does make a difference for me.
I didn't see any of these kinds of things when I was trying to read every word on the WWW, before I bought it. Grip safety won't bother me, since I'll probably wind up changing it anyway. The slide is another matter. Need to blast some rounds through it - and if it acts like something the Army had issued to 20 people before me, I'll revisit the Remington, or perhaps a Colt. Oh yeah, the front sight falling off would be a real bummer!!

I understand what Remington sells are machines and from time to time a bad one will be made and sold. Got it, but wonder if Remington understands this. I am willing to give Remington one more chance to make good with me before posting my story. Remington, if you are listening or watching you might want to respond.
