    Got my R1 Enhanced used, supposedly the previous owner did not like it. Must have been barely shot, as one magazine did not have a mark on it, second almost new too. Not sure what the previous owner didn’t like- it has been accurate and reliable. My barometer of accurate is my success at breaking upright clay birds at 25 yds- rarely does the R1 miss.
    Hopefully, Remington will support their “competition” pistol with an accuracy guarantee?
