    I'm not familiar with that model...who markets it, or is it something you cobbled together from parts ?!

    I asked my LGS to put one on order for me yesterday. Had one about a year ago but sold it when I needed some quick cash.

    Nice oldbrass...if I were going to buy another 1911 any time soon, I would look real hard at the R1.

    As stated earlier, I've all but give up on handguns (except for my Ruger Mk.II) because of vision problems. Here is a Llama that I sold about 3 years ago. I've owned 3 in my lifetime. 2 were excellent pistols and the other one shot well but had feed problems with everything except CCI Blazers.

    I had 2 Llamas years ago, one in 45 and the other in 38super. The 38 was a fine gun, and I carried it as my trail gun, the 45 was very iffy but fun to shoot. I traded them for a SAA clone and a Win 94. Been wanting another 1911 ever since.

    I've always wanted a 1911.

    My Grandmother had one she was passing down to me, but then she sold her inventory and forgot to take it out.

    I tried calling the guy to see if I could get it back but he never answered.

    It is certainly a gun design where there are lots of options from inexpensive to gold plated. I'm afraid my 1911 wants will be serviced like my AR wants. I've wanted an AR since I joined the AF, but I have no need for one. Every time I'm near pulling the trigger I divert the money towards something else I want more. I cheated and bought my Hi Point to get the 45 thrill in a cheap package. Since trading off my 30-06 bolt gun I've been in need of a long range rifle. I was considering a 223 varmint gun, but again 223 got trumped. I bought a Yugo Mauser project I'm going to rebarrel in 243 for that purpose. The ballistics of the 243 are flat shooting awesome, and it's legal to hunt deer with in most places, so 223 looses again.

    made by a company called Metro Arms in the Philipines. very well made pistol. i looked at this pistol at my LGS for about 4-6 months before i bought it. i checked it out by the reviews and info i picked up off the internet, and got a really good deal on it, so i decided to take a chance. i haven't regretted it yet. shoots very nice and accurate. when i stripped it down, the first time, i looked it over very carefully, and found it to be machined very well. it is definately one to check out if looking for a 1911 type pistol. i enjoy mine a lot.

    +1 on a .243, its a great little deer-getter. Can`t hunt with a .223 in WA state either. law sais 24 caliber or better

    Nice R1 preacher, I really like mine..one thing I didn`t like was the excess trigger creep, I took it to the local smith and had it converted to a 70 series trigger. only cost $25. The parts are interchangable with the colt. made a big difference
