Tested: Remington R1 1911 Double-Stack Pistols

America’s oldest gunmaker has expanded its line of R1 M1911 pistols to include something it has never had before—double-stacks. How are the big guns from Big Green? Two examples tell the story.

Remington Doubles Down on Double Stacks for 2018

Remington has added new models to its 1911 R1 pistol lineup, including several double-stacks.

Though mainly thought of as a maker of sporting arms, Remington was never a company to shirk duty when the bugles sounded.

Remington R1 Enhanced

Not too long ago the only semi-automatic Remington handguns you could find were manufactured in the 1920s. The company has continued to expand its revived M1911 line over the past few years, though, and the R1 Enhanced is one of the latest additions to the line.

"Non-Colt" 1911s

It is sometimes overlooked that there were also a relatively limited number of M1911 .45 pistols produced by entities other than Colt.

100 Years of Reminiscing

Remington's recent decision to offer the public a 1911 style .45 pistol is well timed. Back in March, we passed the 99th anniversary of the official adoption of the M1911 pistol as the sidearm of the U.S. Army. Next year, we'll see the centennial of that great old classic. For a host of reasons, the 1911 is an enduring firearm. I have yet to handle a sample of the Remington version, but it looks good and the early reviews of the gun by other writers are favorable.
