    Thanks and I'm pleased to be a member of this fourm. I currently own a SW 9m M&P Compact and am considering purchasing an R1. I have small hands and the R1 fits very well. Any problems associated with it's operation would be greatly appreciated.

    I too am an M&P owner (multiples), and have just purchased an R1.

    From Las Vegas and looking forward to learning all about my R1

    Just bought a R1 SS. Can't wait to get to the range and try it out. Will be my 3rd 45. Currently have a SA TRP in SS and a Ed Brown Classic Custom. Kind of running the gammet as far as $ goes. Wanting to see how it stacks up with the TRP, don't think it will come near the Brown though. We'll see.

    I have a R1S that I have put about 500 rounds through and at this point I love the weapon. The only negative I have found is that after about 80 rounds one afternoon the ridges at the bottom of the backstrap started to irritate my hand, but I think a little buffing will take care of that.

    Sounds like a good solution.

    Thanks for the Welcome!

    I picked up the R1 Remington 100 year Browning anniversary model. Haven't ran a round through it and most likely won't so I don't know if it is a pleasure to shoot or not. Although, I can imagine it would be a pleasure to shoot after reviewing other posts about their R1's.

    Congrats on the acquisition. Don't know that I could have the resolve to keep from firing it.

    Just picked one up I am impressed with fit and finish and it shoots very well for a bare bones 1911.

    I put over a dozen series 70 Colts on my machine rest. Every one of them grouped 5" or better for 5 shots, match swc factory loads, at 50 yds, repeatedly. Most were sub 3", with no tightening of the slide, nor any fitting of the rear of the barrel to slide and frame. the collet bushing is a superb means of "accurizing" a 1911.

    I've been a member here for almost three years now, but been very scarce. A couple weeks ago I purchased my very first Remington, an R1 Commander at a LGS. She's all cleaned up now and range-ready. Range report to follow.

    The only reason that collet bushings break is if they happen to be too tight a fit between the barrel and the slide. Bill Wilson himself told me this, 30+ years ago.

    If buffing your hand doesn't work, try putting a piece of tape along the mainspring housing. :)
