    Hello from Montana

    I just purchased two of my first-ever 1911's. A Remington Rand 43 and Remington R1. I plan to shoot the Rand occasionally and make the R1 into a clone as a regular shooter.

    Good plan. I'll just drop a mention, though, that you have representatives of two totally different and unrelated Remington companies. The current Remington, maker of the R1, is a direct descendant of Remington UMC, an arms company that made some M1911s for the government during WW1. Your 1943 Remington-Rand was made by (:duh Remington Rand, which was a typewriter company that took on a contract to make M1911A1 pistols as part of the war effort. They had no previous experience as an arms maker.

    Yes, I know. My understanding he R1 is kinda a nod to the the 1911 that Remington UMC did during WWI.

    Anything with a FLGR is fluff, if JMB didn't put it on the 1911 you don't need it.

    Hello and welcome from Kansas. If your R1 is as good a shooter as the one I had, you'll enjoy it a lot.
