Remington Makes Centennial and High Grade 1911 R1s
(GunReports.com) -- In recognition of the 100th anniversary of the Model 1911 design, E-RPC is offering two new Remington Model 1911 R1 handguns. The Remington Model 1911 R1 Centennial and the Centennial-Limited Edition commemorate this great pistol design and Remington's return to handgun manufacturing.
The Remington Model 1911 R1 Centennial is built with the same precision-engineered slide and frame as the Model 1911 R1 but with special Centennial engravings on the slide; a special Centennial serial number range; a dovetailed brass bead front sight and black serrated rear sight and custom grip panels that feature Remington medallions. Each pistol is shipped with two, seven-round, anti-friction magazines and Remingtons 1911 R1 Multi-Tool.
The Model 1911 R1 Centennial-Limited Edition features an engraved slide with gold banner, custom charcoal blued finish and a 24-karat-gold front sight. The grip panels are smooth, exhibition grade walnut. Each Remington Model 1911 R1 Centennial-Limited Edition Pistol is hand assembled and comes in a custom wood presentation case.
The first 1911 handgun manufactured by Remington was delivered during World War I. Remington once again is manufacturing the 1911 for E-RPC, Remingtons affiliated company, and to be offering these two anniversary models.
