Remington® 1911 R1TM UltraLight Executive .45 ACP Semi-automatic Pistol
With the R1TM UltraLight Executive, Remington® took the classic Officer 1911 and overhauled it for every-day carry. Step one was cutting weight from the frame. Since steel is heavy, Remington replaced it with aluminum, cutting about 30% from the total weight. Next, Remington preserved the nice 7+1 capacity, but rounded off the frame and mainspring housing, since those are the components most likely to cause printing. Then, they eliminated the manual thumb safety for a much smoother draw.
But it isn't all about subtraction. The R1 UltraLight Executive also features a handful of upgrades. First and foremost, it comes equipped with a 3.5" match-grade barrel to help you squeeze out a little extra distance. Additionally, it features a trigger that can be adjusted for pull weight (3.5-5 lbs.). And last but not least, it comes standard with tritium night sights for low-light targeting. The result is one of the most carry-friendly 1911s available today.
