Other Guns - talk about them here / Re: 1911 R1-S

How's she running these days?  :)


Haven't had this one to the range yet as there's a shooting ban going on in the county until the monsoon rains get here, too dry. I don't do the so called "organized" ranges since I retired from the military either. So, if this one is as reliable and accurate as my 9mm Enhanced R1, it'll be a winner.

I bet my bottom dollar it is!  ;) 1911s are pretty good guns. Heck the government wouldn't have used them for 65+ years if they had problems. Still want a range report though!  :)

You beat me to the punchline Todd! I am glad they are finally out of it. Let's keep our fingers crossed that they don't screw up this time.  ;)

put another box of winchester 124gr NATO though it today.  no hiccups.  with (very) slow aimed fire kept 95% of the box in a 2" circle at 7 yards.  still learning to shoot it.  weighed it with 8 in it and scaled at 26 oz.  still don't like the "combat" sight picture you have to hold, but i'm (slowly) learning.

so that puts it at >400 now.  just getting it broken in  :D

Funflyer started a thread on here for forum users to keep track of their round counts for their pistols. I think it is entitled Round Count Totals, or something like that. Try to find it on here, as I think it will help you keep track better. Just a tip!  ;)

I thought I responded to this yesterday but...

Anyway, if they are the sights that Remington sells on their sight it may be that the point of aim will be the same as factory.
I bought the Remington fiber optic sights and the point of aim is still 4" low at 7 yards, which is what I saw with stock sights.
The good news is I was able to tighten my groups with the new sights.

Hrm, that's not good. Much easier to lower POI than to raise it. If you don't mind losing the R51 aesthetics on the rear sight, you could install a higher rear sight from another pistol (maybe a CZ) or find a really low front sight (big dot maybe, or again a CZ).

Is low POI a common issue? Higher rear sight could be another good aftermarket product.
