Overall very pleased with the R1 Enhanced Stainless Steel 1911. Out of the box it was fairly clean, no excessive packing grease. Good slide to frame fit and smooth action. Crisp trigger, nice break. I measured it with my Lyman at 5 lbs, but ti doesn't feel like a 5 lb trigger. Front F.O. sight can be picked up easily for a fast sight picture. Grips are aggressive. Very textured. Magazines are well constructed and lock in easily and with the extended mag release drop out smoothly and quickly.
My finish is a more of a matted finish than the picture above. Originally I wanted it to be a little more glossy but the matte is a better in the long run. I won't have to worry about glare when using it outside.
Shot 200 rounds through it at the range with flawless operation the first time out. I was shooting about 2.5" groups at 7 yds. The gun can shoot better than me.
Overall for the price I am very please with the Remi. I did a lot of online research and decided to go with it. Great features for the price. Bud's service was very good. Two days to process once my money cleared and two days to ship. Also, Bud's had the lowest price I could find with free shipping. Happy shooting.
