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!
