Remington manufactured its first Model 1911 during World War I, introduced the 1911 R1 in 2012 and now is proud to introduce a new version of America’s favorite pistol design, the Remington Model 1911 R1 Ultralight Commander.

The R1 Ultralight Commander’s aluminum frame reduces the weight while matching performance of the standard 1911, bringing you a time tested classic, with a 20 percent weight reduction.

The Remington Model 1911 R1 Ultralight Commander features a type III hard coat anodized lightweight aluminum frame at 7½ ounces, adjustable trigger, PVD finished slide and aggressively checkered laminate grips.
