Default Remington R1 Enhanced

Hi,
Anyone have an R1 Enhanced? Remington has a pretty good rebate going on right now and I'm wondering if these versions are worth the $$. So, owners...do you like yours, are you glad you bought it, how do they compare with other production 1911s?

Thanks!

The R-1 is a good gun. I have not put many rounds through mine yet, but they are fine by all accounts.

I've been interested in the R1 Enhanced myself, but have yet to find one at any LGS. From the lack of listings on Gunbroker, and Armslist, seems as the people who have bought them, haven't decided to let them go yet..

It's one of the many 1911's I have. Great gun as it's very accurate and has a crisp trigger. The barrel and bushing is very tight. I actually have to use the wrench to take it down. Finish is excellent on it too.

Thanks, Wishbone

That was one of the ares of concern for me. I had heard the finish looks excellent, but that it wears fairly quickly. Not the case with yours?

Thanks again!

There was one on GB (auction ended) yesterday.
The 1911 R1 with polished slide custom grips beautiful engraving with gold inlay one of 500 factory new that went for $605.00 plus $35.00 shipping.
I KNEW I should of bid on it but I kept telling myself I Don't need another gun.
I feel like a idiot today. Now I have Non Buyers Remorse.

Did anyone else see that one?

Academy has the 1911 R1S on clearance. Not as fancy as the enhanced, and still $649 (then you do the rebate).
