Remington—whose parent company just emerged from bankruptcy—has teamed up with Travis Tomasie on a new 1911 called the 1911 R1 Tomasie Custom. The hook is that the gun is an exact reproduction of the gun Tomasie uses in competitive shooting matches.
Available in .40 S&W with a five-inch ramped, match-grade bull barrel, the 1911 R1 Tomasie Custom features an oversized magwell; match grade adjustable trigger; lightened skeletonized hammer; fiber optic front sight and fully adjustable LPA target rear sight; PVD coating; and machined G10 VZ operator grips.
“Working together with Remington engineers, we’ve developed a double stack 1911 that meets my demanding specifications, and is built with pride in Huntsville, Alabama. Utilizing premium components, this pistol offers the consumer extraordinary accuracy, reliability, and shootability,” said Team Remington captain and World and National Shooting Champion Tomasie.
“The R1 Tomasie Custom is chambered in .40 S&W to meet Major Power Factor scoring, under the rules of the USPSA (United States Practical Shooting Association) and IPSC (International Practical Shooting Federation). I personally inspect and test every single R1 1911 Tomasie Custom.”
Tipping the scales at 41 ounces empty and measuring 8.5 inches in OAL, the 1911 R1 Tomasie Custom is available now at a MSRP of $1,650.
