First Look: Remington R1 1911 Ultralight Executive

Brand new and in the wild, the first R1 1911 Ultralight Executive from Remington is in for testing.

Remington is coming hard with their latest 1911 offering, the R1 Ultralight Executive features a 3.5″ match bull barrel, tritium night sights, rounded and deburred edges, g10 grips, skeletonized  hammer and adjustable trigger and checked front strap just to get started.

The proof is in the pudding as they say and the initial “down and dirty” unedited 6 minute first look video shows it’s first several magazines right out of the box.



A full review is in the works and we’ll continue to focus on reliability, ammunition types and more.  Until then check out the video on the 13C YouTube Channel .
