The Remington 1911 is a New Version of the Legendary 1911

The M1911 pistol is one of the best known pistols in the world, and the 1911 has had a remarkable history.  Designed by the legendary gun genius John Browning, the 1911 was designed for use in the military.  It was determined that the available pistols of the time were inadequate, and so the military went on a search for a better sidearm.  In 1910, as the gun was undergoing testing by the US military, it was subjected to some severe torture tests.  In one reported test, a single 1911 pistol fired 6,000 rounds with NO recorded malfunctions.  A real testimony to the outstanding gun that John Browning designed!  The rest is history.  The designation "M1911" came about because the US Army was the first to adopt the pistol for military service on March 29, 1911.  The .45 caliber M1911 pistol was used extensively by the US military from 1911 - 1985.  In fact, some groups within the military still use it.  There have been numerous versions of the famous 1911 pistol produced over the years.  Many different manufacturers have released their own version of this popular handgun.  In 2010, Remington entered the marketplace with their own Remington 1911 R1 pistol.  In 2011, Remington came out with some additional models (Enhanced & Centennial) to fit the interests of other 1911 gun enthusiasts.
