The 1911 R1 Carry Commander combines style, comfort, and concealability into one perfect package that will fit every woman perfectly and safely. Let me tell you why you should choose the 1911 R1 Carry Commander for self-defense…

So you want a gun?

Choosing a gun for self-defense can be tough, but there are a few things to look for when deciding which gun will work best. First, what are you looking to use your gun for? Is it just going to be around your house or are you likely to carry it with you? If you plan on carrying it with you often, then I recommend the 1911 R1 Carry Commander. It’s very lightweight, small enough to fit in most pockets and has excellent handling due to its single stack magazine. It’s also easy to put in an ankle holster and has a surprisingly soft recoil since it only has a six round magazine.

What should I look for in a handgun?

When choosing a handgun, there are many factors to consider. With the large variety of firearms on the market, it can be difficult to narrow down what gun will suit your needs.
However, there are some features that any good self-defense firearm should have, and one option worth considering is the 1911 R1 Carry Commander.
The Remington R1 Carry Commander has everything you need in a handgun: reliability, accuracy, and deadly stopping power. This weapon features an 8 round magazine that’s capable of firing between 2-3 shots per second.
Additionally, you can also attach a threaded barrel to this weapon which allows you to attach certain accessories like suppressors or flashlights.
If you’re looking for a reliable and powerful self-defense pistol, look no further than the 1911 R1 Carry Commander.

How do I choose what caliber to use?

When it comes to ammunition, there are a lot of factors that you need to consider when choosing your caliber. With guns like the Remington R1 Carry Commander, available in .45 ACP and 9mm rounds, you’ll want to think about where you live and how much space your firearm will take up in your vehicle if you’re traveling.

For those who live in rural areas with plenty of space around them, they may find that they have more options with which to choose their ammunition based on what predators they might be facing.

However, most people don’t have this luxury and can only shoot at what’s within their city limits or neighborhood so those who prefer shooting something other than hollow point rounds might not be able to do so easily.

Should I get an all-metal or polymer frame?

One of the most difficult parts of buying a gun can be deciding whether you want one made out of metal or polymer. All guns function the same no matter what they’re made from, but there are benefits to each material that can help you decide which option is best for you.
For example, metal frames are durable and feel really good in your hand. They come with a more expensive price tag because of their sturdiness and beauty. But if you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, plastic might be better since it can break easier and still be affordable. So keep in mind your budget and use to figure out which frame will work best for you!

Does it make sense to have adjustable sights?

One of the main considerations when choosing a self-defense handgun is how it feels in your hand. We all have different sized hands and fingers so trying out multiple guns to find what feels most comfortable should be part of your search. I personally prefer a revolver but for those who want an automatic pistol, we recommend a 1911 gun.
The design of this type has remained largely unchanged over time and most models are chambered in 45 ACP (automatic Colt Pistol) which will give you more firepower in a single round than other caliber options.
What makes the 1911 R1 Carry Commanderperfect as a concealed carry weapon, is that you can shorten its 4 barrel to 3. For many people, this will make it easier to conceal because it takes up less space on their person.

What do I need to carry my handgun in?

When it comes to carrying your 1911 R1 Carry Commander handgun, you want to make sure you carry in a concealed way. There are many great options when it comes to choosing where and how to carry your firearm.

In most states, both men and women have the legal right to conceal and carry a weapon on their person with or without a permit. One thing to keep in mind before purchasing any type of bag or carrying device for your firearm is whether or not you need it to be completely hidden from sight or just hidden from easy view (if someone has already spotted it).

For example, most purses can hold a 1911 .45 but don’t do much as far as covering up the gun itself.

What should I look for in holsters/pouches/bags/cases, etc.?

It’s a fact that there are plenty of options out there, so it can be difficult to determine which one will work best. The most important factors you should consider when purchasing a carry case are size, shape, and weight.
Firstly, make sure you get a case that will suit your gun. For example, if you have an 1911 style firearm like the 1911 R1 Carry Commander you want something that suits it perfectly.
Secondly, figure out what’s most important to you in terms of size and weight. Keep in mind that larger cases tend to weigh more but offer more storage space whereas smaller cases tend to offer less room but weigh less.

Can’t I just pocket carry the 1911 R1 CARRY COMMANDER at all?

Unfortunately, many firearms are too bulky to be kept in a pocket, and can be uncomfortable when sitting down. This can make it difficult to access your firearm quickly in an emergency.

The thin profile of the 1911 R1 CARRY COMMANDERmakes it perfect for pocket carry. Plus, with a double stack magazine, you get twelve rounds of .45 ACP ammo–enough to handle any situation that might arise.

The 1911 R1 CARRY COMMANDER also offers an ambidextrous thumb safety, so both left and right handed shooters can operate the gun easily. And finally, no other handgun comes with more aftermarket parts available than the 1911.

Whether it’s new grips or sights, custom trigger jobs or even full frame kits—the sky’s the limit!

There are a lot of great reasons to choose the 1911 R1 CARRY COMMANDER as your new conceal carry gun. But, there are even more reasons why you shouldn’t. At 77 years old, Remington Arms has been making firearms since 1816. With over 200 years of experience building quality guns, you know they have this one covered.

What about accessories like lights, lasers, and sights?

When you’re in a high-stakes situation like self defense, everything you do has to be fast and precise. You don’t have time to fiddle with your weapon when you need it most, so why would you want to worry about complicated laser or light attachments?

The 1911 R1 Carry Commander comes standard with iron sights. With this gun, all you have to do is squeeze the trigger. In your hands, that’s enough power. And now, you can find the perfect fit for your budget.

A Remington R1 Carry Commander can also be customized by choosing either walnut grips or black rubber grips from our line of stock options. It also comes in a variety of barrel lengths including 4 (bbl), 5 (bbl), 6 (bbl) and 7 (bbl). So what are you waiting for?

Make the smart choice and get yourself and buy Remington R1 Carry Commander for an affordable price today!
What kind of ammo should I use?: Some people prefer to shoot hollow points, which expand on impact for greater stopping power.
Others may use full metal jacket rounds, which work well in adverse conditions such as windy days. We recommend keeping at least 3 types of ammo on hand: hollow points, FMJ rounds, and target rounds.

Which aftermarket parts are worth looking into?

Just about every part of a gun can be customized, from the sights to barrel and grips. Depending on your priorities and preferences, there are plenty of aftermarket parts worth looking into when you’re considering an upgrade.
Here are some aftermarket parts worth investing in for your 1911 R1 Carry:
-Sights -Some people have luck with upgrading their sights with little to no experience with guns. A particular sight you may want to try out is Ghost 3 Dot Tritium Rear & Fiber Optic Front Sight
-Magazines -Your magazines should match any upgrades that you’ve made on your gun, such as magwells or ported barrels. Some magazines worth considering include Rock Island Armory Standard Capacity Magazine For The Remington R1 Carry Commander Pistol 9mm Luger 17 Rounds and Trijicon 21 Magazine Base Pad Kit (Red) for Ruger MKII/III 22LR pistol .
If you purchase something other than a Magpul 10/30 magazine base pad kit, make sure that it has the same measurement of height as other magazine base pads because this will ensure compatibility with your Magpul magazine.
-Barrels -The barrels that come stock with the remington r1 carry commander pistols are not threaded which means they won’t fit most suppressors without modifications to get them threaded.
