    Why Not A Remington Sub-forum Among The 1911 Manufacturers?

    Hello,
    I'm a new forum mumber and do not know the history behind this. But it seems that along with Springfield, Colt, and the others, the new Remington has established itself as a supplier of 1911 replicas and variants.

    Is it just a long-standing (from the forum's origins) omission of Remington, or is there another reason why Remington doesn't command it's own sub-forum?

    I'd like to know more about their offerings, and would love to have the already-posted questions and information readily available. Thanks for your response. I really appreciate this forum and the experts who write here.

    Phil G.

    Remingtom offers variants, but I don't consider anything they currently offer to be a replica.

    When Remington first hit the market with their 1911, there was an immediate clamor for a Remington discussion area. At that time, John's position was to wait and see if Remington generated enough discussion to earn its own discussion area. Perhaps it's time to revisit that question, but the decision is John's.

    Thank you for the clarification, Hawkmoon. Your answer explains the thinking, and I'm not calling it into question. As a newcomer, it just struck me as a conscious decision on the part of the forum designers. Thanks again. Phil

    There would probably also be confusion between Remington-UMC 1911s, Remington-Rand 1911A1s and the current Remington Firearms products.

    The same issue pertains to both Colt and Springfield Armory. The number of people who post about genuine military issue pistols in the modern manufacturers' discussion areas is miniscule.
