Remington has reentered the handgun business with the new 1911 R1, manufactured under the ERPC brand. The company last made 1911s during World War I. This new model is a 1911A1 variant with some outstanding modern upgrades. Remington says this 1911 is just the first model in an extensive line. By the end of this year, it plans to offer a stainless-steel model. Other models under consideration include a Commander-style 1911, 1911-style pistols chambered for calibers other than .45 auto, and perhaps a centennial model for 2011.
