    Remington R1 Enhanced w/threaded barrel

    Stopped by the LGS today and this thing followed me home.
    Now if it will just warm up enough to go to the range.

    FWIW: I just bought a new enhanced version without the threaded barrel. I have 200 rounds through it so far. The slide action seemed a little rough when I took it out of the box but cleaning it and using a good quality grease on the slide rails fixed that. I cleaned both magazines and used a little RemOil DryLube on the inside.

    The first 200 rounds have been flawless from a feeding stand point. It is a misnomer to ask about the accuracy of this model. It is more about how well you shoot. I am amazed at how well I shoot this gun.

    My bet is you won't be sorry for the purchase.

    Mine seemed fine out of the box, but I always completely tear them down to remove the factory juice. Now if the rain and snow would stop I could go to the range. I changed grips already. It now has black carbon fiber grips.

    I appreciate the weather issues. I have a membership for an indoor range and that helps a lot.

    I like the factory grips that came on mine but they do tend to come loose after 50-75 rounds. I'll probably pick up some O-ring seals to try on the grip screws if my blue locktite doesn't hold.
