    Eli,
    Glad you got to the range with your 1911R1. The weather here has not been conducive for me to go. Nothing but snow and cold weather. My R1 has been cleaned and oiled since my initial post and ready to roll when the weather cooperates. In the meantime I've picked up a shoulder holster for it and a replica cav holster both from Sportsmens Guide for it. Also got a spare Remington mag.
    Hope I have the same luck with mine that you had with yours.

    Thumbs up

    Finally got to the range this past Fri. It was cold, windy and a mix of mud and ice. Not the most favorable conditions. Couldn't wait to get some rounds thru it and get back in the car to warm up.
    Worked flawless with all three mags (Rem's). Only shot 50 rds thru it (just enough to get it dirty) Couldn't get with the program for accuracy (weather was just too darn cold to get serious). I will say on a standard FBI target at 30' all the K values scored high.
    Field stripped it yesterday and did not see any noticeable wear or problems. I 'can' wait for more favorable weather and look forward to shooting it some more.

    The first Remington I ever fired was assigned to me at the 1st Marine Brigade, in Hawaii, back in 1982. It stayed in the armory, rattled worse than a rattlesnake, and was dead on accurate. A hold over from WWII I'm sure, but what a sweet gun. Then there was that old Singer tooo......

    Enjoy your .45, own many, shoot often.

    I bought myself a R1 this past October and love it. 250 rounds through it with no problem. The only thing I dropped in is a Wilson Combat 18# spring to handle +P rounds. I did shoot +P already with the original spring with no issues. I have not shot it yet with the 18# spring yet. I also put a a pair of VZ alien grips. I like the kiss theory and planning to carry it as my duty weapon next year. I also use CMC mags too with no issues.
