SHS48: Remington R1 Commander

SHS 48 - Remington R1 1911

On this episode of the Second Hand Showcase, we are looking at a used gun that is actually not very old. The Remington R1 Commander 1911.

Now I am not saying this gun is anywhere near as nice as a full or semi-custom 1911. 

But what I am saying is this gun is so spec’ed out very well. It’s got a good finish with lots of 1911 features that come standard. 

Basically everything a Commander should have and nothing it should not. The ONLY thing I can kick this gun on is the lack of a flat edge on the rear sight for one handed malfunction clearance drills. But that is more a sign of the times instead of the gun itself.

Details as follows:

  • Make: Remington
  • Model R1 Commander 1911.
  • Caliber: 45ACP.
  • Case: original case, 2 magazines. 
  • Barrel: 4.25” bushing and plug. 
  • Trigger: Videcki style trigger.
  • Safety: ambidextrous.
  • Front strap: checkered 25lpi.
  • Sights: night sight front. Novack style in back.
  • Grip panels: half checkered. 
  • Extractor: traditional GI. 

Overall this is a very well appointed gun. 20 years ago this would’ve been a full house custom build. Today, this is a discount 1911. How times have changed!
