Bouncing back from bankruptcy, Big Green is still turning out top guns. Here are four Remington handguns worth drawing a bead on.
What are the new Remington handguns for 2019:
- Remington R1 1911 Limited Tomasie Custom
- Remington RM380 Executive
- Remington RM380 Light Blue Stainless
- Remington 700 CP (Chassis Pistol)
Remington is still alive and kicking.
Considered for the better part of two centuries the standard in firearms, the New York-based company is rebounding from its 2018 bankruptcy. The same holds true for its sister brands, including DPMS, Marlin, Bushmaster and Dakota Arms.
Jay Pinsky had the opportunity (he said privilege) of spending 3 days with the Remington staff at one of their ammunition facilities in Lonoke, Ark. While there, the men and women of the company proudly showcased what’s next for the iconic gunmaker. And it’s nothing short of fantastic.
Here, brand new for 2019, are four of the hot new handguns Remington has in store for shooters and shows Big Green is still on its game.
Travis Tomasie and Remington teamed up to create a custom 1911, chambered in the steel-popping .40 S&W. The 5-inch handgun features a ramped, match-grade bull barrel, ported slide, LPA fully adjustable match sights, EGW competition hammer, extended beavertail grip safety, adjustable skeletonized trigger, PVD DLC finish, an oversized competition magazine well and VZ G10 grips. MSRP: $1,650
The pint-sized RM380 gets a suit and tie in an executive trim level. The ultra-small CCW handgun features Macassar laminated grips, stainless and nickel-coated components, a double-action trigger, low-profile slide stop and ambidextrous magazine release. MSRP: $405
