If you look in the back of a random Crown Vic police cruiser, chances are you’ll find a beat-up Remington 870 shotgun riding rear (rear riding shotgun?) After a 90 some-odd-year hiatus, the stalwart arms maker is getting back into the 1911 market. John M. Browning designed the original 1911—a single-action, semi-automatic, magazine-fed, recoil-operated handgun chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge—to take out the Kaiser. The new Remington version is going after the mid-to-low end 1911 market, squaring up against the Springfield Armory GI and Taurus 1911. The Remington 1911 R1 will be unveiled at the 139th National Rifle Association Annual Meetings in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Brett Solomon got his first taste of the magazine world covering car electronics for CarSound & Performance Magazine. He landed the job by being noticed for designing high-end car audio systems. Which was fine by him because there was no way he was going to pass the third level of calculus toward an electrical engineering degree at University of Delaware. Not with those DuPont scholars around campus, he’ll take Journalism over Engineering, thank you very much. He has since written for a number of publications (think in-flight journalism) that lack the chutzpah of Robert Farago, and having all of those milquetoast reviews pent up in his system now allows his pen to spit fire. We’ll, he is just not that mean but happy to tell the truth…and the truth is most firearms are fun!
