Yup, gotta put more beauty in the world...with all them Glucks around. :lol4: Looks like I may have to add one of those to the collection...if it's a true 70 series design.
Edit: Just read it has the 80 series crap on it...dammitt. Nice looking pistol though.

I like the clean lines on the new Remington.

Ironically, the one 1911 I've never owned has been the original-Colt. I've been made to understand you can overcome their new safety mechanism by simply installing a Series 70 firing pin, correct?

One of the nice things about the RIA is that it doesn't have all that new jazz on it. Seems that to get around the new trend toward added safeties, you have to look for semi-customs, so that makes the RIA a nice departure.

I used a New 80 series slide to build on a 70 series frame, and just used an 80 series pin and extractor...if ya have a 80 series pistol you have to use spacers after removing the parts in the frame. This wasn't the link i was looking for, but it will give you an idea where the spacers go...still looking for the link i had that offers the spacers.

This will give you a better look at what is involved...even though this on an external extractor pistol, you can see where the spacer needs to go in the frame.
