    Remington 1911 R1 Limited Double Stack

    For those that really need a bunch of ammo and that wide body grip.

    Why do you say that Rick? Especially without knowing more about the gun than was in that short article....

    I have accumulated a number of 1911's (7 full size government models and 3 compacts). My small collection includes Kimber, Colt, and Remington as well as others.

    My Remington R1s enhanced is a favorite. It is accurate, reliable, and a very nice shooting gun. I also have a double stack RIA 1911 in 9mm and I am very comfortable with the thicker grip of the double stack.

    I intend to do more research on these double stack Remington's and I'm thinking there may very well be room for one of them in my safe in the not so distant future.

    I collect Rimfire Firearms (.17 HMR, 5 mm Magnum, 5 mm Craig , 6 mm Flobert, .22 LR, and .22 Magnum), especially Mossberg's. I look for old, different, unique, or rare rifles and handguns in any rimfire caliber as well as parts.

    Don:

    Because itís a hi-cap double stack 1911.

    Iím very familiar with them, and they all weigh a lot more than I care to have hanging all in one place.

    I much prefer a single stack with reloads on the weak side to balance things out.

    As far as the Remington 1911ís specifically, Iíve previously posted about their decision to machine an angle at the top of the VIS that results in a lot of stress being put on the lower lugs (barrel feet). Thatís why I stay away from the brand, but my comments in this thread were because of the weight inherent in a fully loaded double stack all steel full sized 1911 (particularly in .45acp) with a large mag well, FLGR, and other ďtacticool/gamerĒ stuff stuck on, which all adds even more weight.

    I didnít read the article; the picture was all I needed to see.

    Congrats on your 1911 collection!

    I remember when you didnít have much interest in them.

    I suspect the double stack 1911's are much more attractive to shooters with large hands. I think it was a firm from Canada that had a double stack in their inventory for years. They moved to the US at some point and I forget the name of the brand. Maybe a member can help me ID the brand.

    Para Ordinance.

    I wear XL motorcycle gloves, but that doesnít make an all steel double stack weigh any less.
