Combining legendary 1911 performance with a new lightweight design, the Remington 1911 R1 Ultralight is a great option for today’s shooters. America’s all-time favorite .45-caliber pistol, it has been re-engineered with significantly less weight than ever before.

Originally manufactured by Remington during World War I and relaunched in 2012, this year’s breakthrough 1911 R1 Ultralight Commander delivers the high reliability and performance you expect from a 1911, while shedding a difference-making 7.5 oz. from a standard steel frame.

The Remington R1 1911 Ultralight Commander features a 4¼" barrel along with a lightweight frame
that reduces overall weight compared to a steel-framed gun by 30 percent.

The pistol comes standard with an 8+1 capacity in .45 Auto as well as an
adjustable rear sight mated up to a fiber optic front sight.

Chambered in .45 Auto, the Ultralight Commander weighs just 31 oz. when empty, a remarkable 30 percent weight-reduction. It features a match-grade 4¼” stainless steel barrel and a powerful 8+1 magazine capacity, an adjustable trigger system, a checkered laminate grip and PVD slide, adjustable rear sights and fiber optic front sight.

The Remington R1 1911 Ultralight Executive sports a short 3½" bull barrel and night sights.

For maximum 1911 performance and minimal ounces — plus the added advantage of greater visibility in low light conditions — the Model 1911 R1 Ultralight Executive is optimized for performance with night sights, a 3½” bull barrel and G10 laminate grips. It has a 7+1 capacity in .45 Auto and features a rounded heel/mainspring housing for ease of CCW carry.
