Remington Expands R11 Line
Madison, NC - E-RPC® unveiled its newest addition to the popular Remington Model 1911 R1 family at the 2012 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in St. Louis, MO. Configured for practical competition or personal protection, the Remington Model 1911 R1 Enhanced Threaded Barrel is the next evolution of the Model 1911 R1 product line.
The accuracy and reliability that have made the 1911 an American icon since its debut are still present. The new Model 1911 R1 Enhanced Threaded Barrel adds features that make it an ideal choice for shooters who prefer the benefits of signature reduction devices. The pistol features a taller two-dot sight system that allows the shooter to gain the perfect sight picture with a suppressor installed. Other features include a match grade stainless steel threaded barrel; black anodized aluminum match grade trigger; and custom enhanced checkered grips.
"The popularity of silencers is soaring," said John Trull, Vice President of Firearms Product Management and New Product Implementation. "Shooters are looking to enhance their experience with their firearm suppressed and we are proud to offer them an excellent choice with our Model 1911 R1."
The Model 1911 R1 Enhanced Threaded Barrel is available today with a suggested retail price of $1040. It is shipped in a custom carrying case with two, eight-round magazines. The barrel is shipped with a thread protector installed.
The first Model 1911 manufactured by Remington was delivered during World War I. The pistol is part of the company's venerable history. Today, the 1911 R1 Enhanced Threaded Barrel is a sweet-shooting advancement of a legendary design with many custom upgrades which avid shooters expect-we're more than proud to put our name on it.
