Shipping is a GO.
Item ordered on 5/28/17 (holiday weekend) and shipped on 6/6/17. All emails received as indicated on website.
Packaging is a GO.
Item received in UPS box. The box was not damaged and all content and paperwork was secured. The Remington 1911 came in a Remington green and black cardboard foam lined retail box. Weapon was placed in a plastic "paper" protector and each magazine in a plastic bag. All items have a cut out in the foam lining or the box to prevent movement or contact with other items in the box.
Item condition is a GO.
Weapon was oiled for protection inside and out. Finish was free of visual defects. Weapon and all components free from defects. No rust, no corrosion, no scratches noted, any fingerprints on oiled surface appeared to be from FFL handling upon receipt.
Function is a GO.
Weapon was fired straight from the box with no cleaning. Both magazines function flawlessly in the weapon. Weapon had zero malfunctions with 230 grain round nose. Slide lock, magazines and safety work in all aspects of cycling as they should.
The factory set adjustable (elevation only) rear sight was 6 inches high and two inches right from point of aim at 8 yards, elevation was adjusted and new group (no rest used)was a two inch spread and two inches right of POA. Manual states not to use "plus p or +p rounds".
Build quality at this price point $622 is a GO.
Outside diameter of stainless Match Barrel is .581 inches. Inside Diameter of barrel bushing is .584 inches. No barrel wrench is needed to disassemble/assemble my firearm. Barrel lock up is very positive with no movement while pressing down on breech while locked into battery. Barrel link is firm and does not flop around while barrel is removed fits nice with slide stop
Slide and frame has almost zero tool markings, the ones I could barely see were very minimal. Some rocking movement left to right, right to left on frame fit. Same as my Sig Sauer RCS commander, Tisas 5 inch, ATI Citadel 3 inch. Whereas my Kimber Grand Raptor Two and Colt custom 1991A1 have zero play in slide to frame fit. Frame fit is flush with slide at rear hammer area.
Trigger is adjustable for take up and from factory there is about 1/16 inch before break and no over travel. I do not have a trigger pull gauge.
Safety is extended and easy to operate, yet still firm and has a nice audible click and feel.
Grips have a very aggressive checkering and look great with black hex head grip screws. Lower left side screw loosened just enough to make a clicking sound upon firing first 15 rounds. Grips are cut for ambi safety although no ambi safety is installed.
Magazines drop free when released and load with a positive click. The bumper pads are marked with the Remington "R" .45 cal and sides are marked with 2-8 numbered holes. Magazine have a plastic, solid construction follower and a matt black finish.
