Here's my Rem R1 1911, with her friends. I already had the stag grips on the Colt SAA (.45Colt w/ .45ACP cylinder), and the damascus bowie knife, so it seemed only fitting that she get stag grips as well.

Here's my addition to this thread. Only cold blue on the dehorn, hammer bob and beavertail until I get all done. This was my first gunsmithing job so be easy. I kinda like the bobbed hammer, I might leave it for now.





Next up tactical thumb safety.

Quack, The R1 looks great as do ALL of your guns. I have some gun smithing experiance with shot guns and rifles and am on the look out for a project gun to learn the 1911 platform. How do you feel the R1 compares to the Springfield Mil-Spec you have worked on for your friend? I have 2 local shop with R1s in stock but can't find a Mil-Spec.

IMO, the R1 was a better project gun. I'm a HUGE Springfield fan, but during my 6-8 month search for a decent mil-spec, I ended up buying the R1 when they first came out. when working the mil-spec slide, it was rough/gritty and the barrel bushing was loose. The R1 was fit pretty well and the barrel was pretty tight and along the lines of a more expensive gun. If you like the Ed Brown grip safeties, then the R1 is able to use them compared to the Springfields.

All new guns require a magazine disconnect????

That is the worst feature of any gun.....and you are correct, it will not be on any new 1911's.

for new guns (not currently on the "list") that are going through California testing, yes.

600 rounds through my R1, various ammo including JHPs, 100% reliability.

I absolutely love this pistol.

California sucks. I don't know how they can have their heads so far up their asses and still manage to breathe...

I LOVE how big the sight dots are. It makes target acquisition soooo easy!

And finally....

I saw someone who did the floorplate roll marks in white (edit: here it is, from this thread), and it got me thinking. So, I biked up to the local Hobby Lobby and picked-up a small bottle of model paint, and did mine up in (close to) Remington Green!





The last pic looks horrible. Phone lens needs cleaned, I think....

Also did some paint inlay work in the round count numbers.

^ Nicer than mine....

Remington logo "Talo" edition laminated rosewood grips:







The left-side grip panel's logo was insanely crooked, but I easily tapped it out with a small punch and a tack-hammer, then reset it with a little hot-glue.

Yep most of the flush fit mags have holes drilled for a bump pad that may collect dirt & grit, IMO. Remington is one of the few with a smooth welded basepad and nifty rollmarks that let them know- this is no airsoft.

BTW, The full polished bright nickel Novak mag does look "pimp" but is a pain to keep clean. Not so for the duty ready blued Remi magazines.

Your not alone brother. The day I bought mine I took it apart to clean it thoroughly and when I went to put the grips back on the bottom left screw refused to go in. The screw bushing was totally stripped. I called the shop I bought it from and he gave me a new set of bushings to put in. They told me it happens sometimes and since bushings are cheap it's not a huge problem.

1911 r1 pic

Just purchased my remington 1911r1 a couple of weeks ago. Have fired about 150 rounds through it and haven't had a problem with it. The trigger is smooth and doesn't require a lot of pull. I didn't like the grips on it so i put some tortoise , raasco grips on it. Gave $600 plus tax for it. It is a good gun and it fit my budget. Iam really pleased with it.

Just be sure and keep it lubed with some good lubricant.
