Founded in 1816 by Eliphalet Remington, America’s oldest gunmaker, Remington, has produced some of the country's most renowned firearms designs—from it’s Walker-designed Model 700 to the famed Browning-designed Model 1911. Concerning the latter, Remington has remodeled this classic design with a 21st-century treatment, designating it the R1 Tactical Double Stack Threaded pistol. This 1911-based design features the Series 80 firing system, along with PVD-finished stainless steel for its frame and slide materials. Suppressor-height, two-dot Tritium sights and a ramped and threaded 5.5” match-grade barrel, combined with VZ Operator G10 stocks, lend to its Tactical nomenclature. Additionally and most notably, the pistol feeds from double-stack magazines with capacity for 15 rounds of .45 ACP.
