Remington’s 1911 R1 Limited Double Stack handguns are headed to dealer’s shelves, the company announced via press release Wednesday.

The 1911 R1 Limited Double Stack features a 5-inch ramped, match-grade barrel on a stainless steel frame. Boasting wide rear and front cocking serrations, the pistol seeks to give shooters a more positive grip for tackling finicky field conditions.

Equipped with LPA fully adjustable match sights, the 1911 touts a fiber optic front sight Remington says is designed for faster target acquisition. An extended beavertail grip safety and VZ G10 grips aim to improve grip and hold while an adjustable skelentonized trigger promises a clean, crisp break between 3.5 and 5-pounds.

Available in three models, the 1911 R1 Limited Double Stack comes chambered in the shooter’s choice of 9mm, .40 S&W or .45 ACP.

Remington said the pistol series is available now through dealers and distributors nationwide. The 1911 ships with two stainless steel magazines and is priced at $1,399.
