My old pal Dick Williams asked me what I'd add to the gun, and I said, "Nothing." The trigger's good; the high vis sights are not as perfect as Novaks, Heine's or XS, but they're perfectly serviceable. The short trigger felt just fine to my finger. I stood in place on the line at 7 yards and put 80 rounds (with a couple of called fliers outside the main group) in a great big ole jagged hole. I could have kept pouring 230-grain rounds into that hole all day long, no big deal.
The gun looked good, handled good, shot good. I told Linda Powell at Remington that I'd give her my credit card number next week for my own R1...a great addition to the collection! I think the Remington R1 is a home run.
