E-RPC unveiled its newest addition to the popular Remington Model 1911 R1 family at the 2012 NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in St. Louis, MO. Configured for practical competition or personal protection, the Remington Model 1911 R1 Enhanced Threaded Barrel is the next evolution of the Model 1911 R1 product line.
The accuracy and reliability that have made the 1911 an American icon since its debut are still present. The new Model 1911 R1 Enhanced Threaded Barrel adds features that make it an ideal choice for shooters who prefer the benefits of signature reduction devices (also known as sound suppressors/moderators, or simply, silencers). The pistol, obviously chambered in .45 ACP, features a taller two-dot sight system that allows the shooter to gain the perfect sight picture with a suppressor installed. Other features include a match grade stainless steel threaded barrel; black anodized aluminum match grade trigger; and custom enhanced checkered grips.
According to the Company's Vice President of Firearms Product Management and New Product Implementation John Trull, the popularity of silencers is soaring, and shooters are looking to enhance their experience with their firearm suppressed, hence the decision to offer a threaded version of the 1911 R1.
Advanced Armament Corp., LLC (“AAC”) is an industry-leading supplier of signature noise reduction and flash reduction devices and offers the TiRant45 and TiRant45S models for the 1911 R1 Enhanced Threaded Barrel.
In the USA, the Model 1911 R1 Enhanced Threaded Barrel is already available with a suggested retail price slightly above 1000 dollars. The weapon sports enhanced Black/Pewter Laminate grips, and the Stainless Steel, Match Grade barrel is shipped with a thread protector installed.
It is shipped in a custom carrying case with two, eight-round magazines.
