Remington 1911 R1

Image 3 of 10

I’ve always been a sucker for the Commander-size .45-caliber pistol and Remington’s new R1 Carry has a 4.25-inch match-grade stainless steel barrel, dehorned carbon steel slide and frame with a black oxide finish, beavertail grip safety, half-checkered Cocobolo grips, Novak night sights with a tritium front sight, checkered front strap and mainspring housing. It comes with two magazines depending on your preference—a seven- and an eight-rounder.
