Hardware: Remington 1911 R1 10mm Hunter Long Slide

The R1 10mm Hunter Long Slide is a good choice for hunting smaller big game. It’s also a great gun for those who work outdoors and carry a handgun. This is a gun that can handle without compromise a wide range of issues: injured livestock, pest control, hunting opportunities or personal defense.
