    So apparently I finally harassed the right number of people in the right order to get them to finally send me my R1. After being strung along for a frustrating period of time along with a number of excuses including the equivalent of my dog ate my homework, I finally got a tracking number and watched it as it arrived yesterday. However the kids were out of school because of the cold and I was home sick anyway and I wasn't about to go out and pick it up. Today I got off work early and came home got my daughter went to the store for groceries and then picked up my new acquisition.

    My first impression when I saw it was "holy cow this is monstrously big." I'd forgotten how big these things are. I guess I've gotten spoiled to my PF9 and the like. It is not actually all that different in ddimensions from my CZ52, but the 52 just feels a lot slimmer in the hand for some reason. I don't know why yet.

    I haven't gotten a chance to clean the shipping junk out of it yet, that will probably be a tomorrow chore. Not sure when I'll get the chance to shoot it either, what with the weather being like it is and me still having a cold and coughing almost as much as I breathe.

    Anyway here are some obligatory pics, including one beside its Cold War opponent the CZ 52, and one beside another classic 45.

    Well if it's too much gun for you Sally, I'm sure there's a man around here that will take it off your hands.

    That's a nice looking pistol! I'm glad that you finally got some satisfaction from your dealings with Remington.

    Got 150 rounds to feed it first. That'll help me figure out if I like it or not. :)

    150 will be a good start, but I think you will like it. Where are your feet? :D

    I thought about that afterward. I guess I'll have to do a better job next time. :)

    Why would he give it to you knowing you'll surrender it if they ask you to? :p

    Kirk, pay no attention to SWAGA. It's not a new Remington anymore so I'll gladly buy it as used. :D
     
  10. Its pretty sexy. And way more so then it's cold war counter part. IMO.

    No way is 150 rounds going to be enough to 'break it in'.

    You'll need at least 250 rounds.

    Then, and only then, will you be able to see if it is up to Hi-Point pistol's standards.

    Truth!

    I'm planning on having a break in party. I'm inviting all of my local friends to come and shoot it just bring some ammo and whatever they other guns they want just all have a good time breaking it in.

    I'm going to respectfully and politely request that we retain this thread for discussions of the R1, the 1911 platform, or guns in general, and directed away from political threads. I also ask that you direct any of your political threads to the appropriate darkrooms subforum. Thank you.
