If I could possibly be persuaded to carry that rust bucketcalled a 1911 it would be a Remington. The R1 enhanced shoots so good that I had to slap myself to stop myself from thinking about buying one. The R1 makes the RIA guns feel like a boat anchor. I shoot in IDPA tournaments all the time. Everyone is limited to 10 rounds in their gun. I have never seen anyone shoot the fastest time with a 1911. We have big matches in this area. Most of the time we have over 50 shooters. In good weather we have over 100. People shooting revolvers usually beat the 1911 shooters. We have a fellow that has won two national titles in the stock class. He cannot get close to the fastest time with a 1911. In the 1911 you have a big clumsy gun with a short sight radius. My G19 with a 4" barrel actually has a longer sight radius than any 1911. The G19 has the same sight radius as a Beretta 92fs.
