The only thing I can say about this purchase was that it was perfect my choice on the Remington R1 1911 at this price was outstanding. I am so pleased with this gun it looks great and shoots true right out of the box. After looking through Bud's website I made my choice, placed the order and in less than a week I was on my way to my local gun shop to pick it up. Best purchased I made so far for this year.

Well built, extreme attention to detail, extra magazines were a nice touch. Fire accurately for me, no concerns about jamming. Very good value for the price.
I think this is the best price value in the 1911 market.

This is a very good handgun for the price! No malfunctions after several trips to the range. Smooth transaction with Bud's.

Super fast shipping and great price as usual by Buds. Nice 1911 for the price. Had an issue with rounds nose diving at first, but the more I shot it, the less problem I had. After about 100 rounds, she shoots like she should. Never had a 1911 that didn’t need broken in. Would definitely recommend.

First time ordering from Buds. Ordered on Sunday night, gun was at my ffl on Tuesday. Awesome service. As for the gun, I am very happy. Stripped it down to check it out, Fit and finish is excellent, on par with much more expensive models. Mags seem to be good quality even if they only hold 7. This gun is great value for the money, add in the fact that Remington has a $75 rebate on this gun right now and you get an American Made 1911 Commander for basically the price of an import. I couldn't be happier.

Bud's, as usual, offered a hassle free buying experience always with the best prices imaginable. This one was "Make-an-offer" eligible and I completely underestimated this Remington R1 Commander. An unbelievable value and it has outperformed expectations in every category by a huge margin. Hands down it has the absolute best trigger I have ever felt in a Series 80 configured 1911. At just over $500 (plus a $75 mail-in rebate!!!), it's quality exceeds it's price by leaps and bounds. Fit and finish is great - a classic looking appearance with a durable modern-ized finish, all parts are tight and well mated to each other. The only "cons" I've noticed, in my opinion and for my comfort and needs, were that the thumb safety had some sharp edges and it was uncomfortable to engage and the GI style hammer just "don't look right" on a Commander sized gun, both issues were quickly remedied by a trip to my 1911 spare parts drawer. Over 600 rounds of various types of ammo fired using 10 different magazines this week and not one single hiccup!! It operates smooth as glass and it's a stone cold tack driver to boot, the sights are perfect right out of the box! I'm so pleasantly surprised and very glad that I took a chance on this pistol. It was bought simply because it's American made and the price was hard to pass up on but it has been very impressive so far and has me looking at the other 1911 offerings by "Big Green" very carefully.

Buds was great. The gun looked great and all seemed fine. I cleaned and lubed the gun and off to the range. First five shots at 10yards one ragged hole (good start). I loaded another magazine pulled the trigger and click, ejected round & no primer strike, chambered another round same result. It turns out series 80 firing pin safety is malfunctioning. Called Remington and they are sending me a shipping label for repair. If all goes well I would give this gun 5 stars, but for now it is a 2.

Rem 96336 1911 R1 45ACP 4.25" Commander is as good as any 1911 I have bought for the money. A serious no frills 1911. Finish and fit is very good, no rattles and no tooling marks. The $75 Remington 1911 R1 rebate is or choice of Storm lake Barrels, choose from a $75 mail-in rebate OR one of the following Storm Lake 1911 Barrels (Threaded Barrel, Gunsmith Fit Match Barrel or Compensated Barrel) is very nice too. I think I will get the Compensated Barrel.
