    I purchased an R1 in late 2014 and the taper cutout looks to be quite a bit less than pictured in the post previously on the 2nd page of this thread. However, it is slightly larger when compared to a Colt that I have. I have shot several different brands of ammo through mine as well as reloads and have never had a FTF or FTE. So far have use three different brands of magazines, the originals, a Wilson Combat and a Shooting Star and all appear to work just fine. So far, I am pleased with it and it is the .45 that travels with me the most.

    So far I've owned quite a few 1911s, several COLTs, 3 KIMBERs, 1 S&W, and eight absolutely great WILSON COMBATs.
    I was looking for a good solid traditional 1911 without those awful front slide serrations, and I think the REMINGTON R1 did fit the bill.
    Be well.

    Before you start collecting 1911s ... buy books! Collect "quality" not something that you'll be forever making excuses for, and buy the gun not the story behind it.

    I think you'll like it, perhaps a lot. Mine seems to be holding up well and certainly not a safe queen. But then again, I don't think Remington meant them to be other that as you said "a good solid traditional 1911". Sure, it may not have the finest finish and all that but with mine, it seems that no matter what I put in it, it goes bang and puts them on a target right where I want it or close nearby. Not shooting for target groups but I'm not into that anymore. At my age and eyes, I can tell when good enough is good enough. If you already have yours, best wishes and enjoy your fine self !

    Thanks DocWyatt, yesterday I've been to the range, in my opinions it shoots really great, with all the respect towards WILSON products of course, but the main difference was the trigger, as far as results are concerned at 25 metres all the rounds went in the center of the target, so I'm really happy with it as I didn't expect these results especially from a second hand gun although practically new.
    I shot mainly commercial 230 gr FIOCCHI RN, but I tried also 15 "vintage cartridges" made by WINCHESTER in 1945, no difference.
    I had some problems only with my reloads (200gr LSWC), since I don't like making heavy loads for paper targets, but the new 16 lb recoil spring prooved to be too strong for them: so now I'm looking for a new 14 or 15 lb recoil spring.
    Be well.

    Two of the reloads I've used w/ 200 gr. SWC bullets from Missouri Bullets Co. (Bullseye #1). The one I've used most is with 4.7 grs Bullseye, Starline Brass, CCI primers with an OAL of 1.245 with an average speed of 898 fps. This was shot out of a Colt Gov't model. As I'm sure you are aware, my results may not be the same as yours, so err on the side of caution when working up a load for your particular pistol.

    Forgot to add, that this load shot well out of my R1 as well as another 200 SWC load that used Unique powder ( different charge weight) with no FTF or FTE
