Remington Introduces Model 1911 R1 Carry

Madison, NC - Remington is proud to introduce a new version of America's favorite pistol design, built by America's most trusted gunmaker - the Remington Model 1911 R1 Carry.

The R1 Carry is a full-size 1911 pistol that is "de-horned," meaning that any sharp edges have been smoothed, making the pistol easier to carry and holster without the worry of the edges catching or grabbing.

The Remington Model 1911 R1 Carry features a de-horned carbon steel slide and forged-steel frame with satin-black oxide finish; beavertail grip safety with 25 LPI checkered memory bump; ambidextrous safety; front strap and mainspring housing checkered at 25 LPI; Novak® Sights with Tritium front sight; and cocobola grip panels. The Remington Model 1911 R1 Carry is shipped in a custom carry case with one seven-round and one eight-round magazine and a barrel bushing wrench. Suggested retail price is $1,299.

The first Model 1911 manufactured by Remington was delivered during World War I.
You could say the Model 1911 is in Remington's DNA. Perfectly configured for practical competition or personal protection, the Remington Model 1911 R1 Carry is the next evolution of the Model 1911 R1 product line.
