I am shopping for a 1911 and wanted to see if anyone in SA had a Remington R1 that they would let me run some rounds through to get a feel for it? Be happy to pay for your time at the range and cover the ammo (but will try to pick some up as to not use yours). Let me know and thanks!

I've got a Para GI LTC that's better than the Remington, IMHO I'll let you shoot. Better sights, lanyard ring, and shoots like a dream for less than the Remington.

Can't speak about a Para, but the R1 is a great gun. Got one for my father for Xmas in 2011, it is an outstanding pistol, he loves it. I have shot it a few times. If I were ever to get myself a 1911, I would strongly consider the R1.

I've got an R1 that I love so much I use it as an every day carry. Sure, there's a lot of good guns out there. I plan on getting about 5 more different 1911's. But the R1 is still a great gun.

I can bring one to Hicksville if you want to check it out.
Could also meet at a Burleson/Fort Worth range.

I have shot a Para GA and do like them but am looking at an R1 a forum member has for sale. I would like to try it out just to get a comparison to what I have shot previously.

Appreciate the offer but I won't be able to make the Hicksville meet so hopefully somebody in San Antonio has one I can try.
