Wow... I find it very interesting how today's "off the shelf" production 1911's are basically what the custom pistol smith 1911's were in the past.

Congrats! My R1 Carry Commander was a good shooter out of the box & now it's a superb shooter since I installed an Ed Brown perfection sear, EB disconnector, EB barstock hammer & a Wilson Combat ultramatch trigger. I also polished the surface area of every part but especially the two parts (don't know what they're called) that rotate & push the firing pin block. This was especially important since these are the extra parts that make the series 80 trigger feel like it has some drag to it. I now have a 3.6 lb crisp trigger pull that you couldn't distinguish from a series 70 1911.

I believe that you’ll find you will have plenty of empty brass after you take it to the range LOL

You know the old what comes first the chicken or the egg.

Kind of bummed they never sent the $75.00, its the principal of the thing. Wifey lost tracking info, so I'm wondering if I call them up in the rebate dept, I know they got the paperwork. Anyone else waiting ?:eek::D

I got one of them when they first came out. After some factory tweaking, 3.5 lb trigger, match barrel, new slide all on their dime it is a superb weapon and very accurate. The new slide I put the scratch on it and they replaced for no cost. The turn around time was 1 day.

Remington rebate update..

With a little back and forward, they claimed they couldn't read my original receipt, and declined my rebate. I wrote back and stated "Ray Charles" could read it...:(

I got this email below...…..:)
