    Will do, Jammersix. Stripped it down last night and oiled it up. Pretty dry. Made a holster for it today and will shoot it asap. Yiogo

    Um,he's not the first person,others here have already stated they really like theirs.

    Enjoy it Yiogo,I guess I'll have to go hang out with idiots at a gun show to see one because I still haven't seen one local.I do live in a small town and anything worthwhile is an hour away,so I'm not just going to drive to look at something I probably won't buy.

    Brought it to the range today. Shot 43 rounds through it. It operated flawlessly. Recoil was negligible ..believe it or not. My S&W Airweight 637-2 recoils much more. I am quite impressed so far. Yiogo

    Glad to hear it.A fullsize steel 1911 is nice to shoot,they absorb the recoil quite well,the only thing nicer is a fullsize HK USP because the recoil spring assembly turns it into a recoil pussycat.The hotrodded 45s and the 10 can be a good hit,but everything else is mellow.While it ate those,dump a few more hundred through it before trusting the reliability for defense.

    I will, rex. Fun to shoot but it's a range gun for me. At 64, I have a tough enough time lugging me around without lugging an extra 2.5+ pounds. LOL. The 637-2 is nice and light and who cares about recoil when a guy needs some help. God forbid! Yiogo

    Make that 3 lbs loaded and in a holster. Again though, for old time sake, I wanted a full size 1911 similar to what Dad carried in WW2 and the Remington is it. The weight is inconsequential for me. Yiogo

    That was funny,I've got about 15 years to catch up with you but I know what you mean.I don't have much for hip bones and get the saggy butt sometimes,but I love a good 1911.Don't lose the humor man,it's all we have left to keep our sanity in these screwed up times.

    rex, I har ya, my friend. I'm trying. Back to the 1911... They are amazing considering the 100+ years these firearms have been in existence. Yiogo

    I've had my R1 Talo Edition for about 7 months now, and have not had any issues with it at all. I have probably 500 or so rounds through it. Can't shoot it as much as I'd like due to the cost of 45acp, but it has been great. It's my favorite handgun I own next to my Beretta 92A1 9mm.

    I just bought a Stainless R1S and I think its one of the better built 1911's at their price out there..!
    Out of the box I ran 10 mags thru her and not one malfunction..! Also, As I took it apart to clean,
    I noticed it was really put together well. I would not hesitate to tell anyone to buy one..! JMHO....

    If the Remington 1911s would have been given the same benefit of the doubt which the Rugers were given, I believe the Remingtons would have proven themselves worthy. Besides, you can easily get your hands on a Remington.

    I've put a 2-300 rounds through my R1. It is a joy to shoot. Those SR1911's look pretty good too. So many guns to buy.
    Looks like the 1911's are safe from the gun carrying, gun grabbers. Hope no one tells them dropping a mag down (or as they "clip) and popping in another, might take 2 seconds.
    Hang in there, guys.
