From Remington's Facebook page:

To commemorate the 100th Anniversary of WWI, we teamed up with Turnbull Manufacturing Co.
to reintroduce a historically accurate Remington-UMC 1911. This 1911 package will only be available
for a limited time and only 1000 produced.

In looks, sure. But there are plenty of supermodels that probably can't cook a decent meal or iron my shirts.

Forged frame and slide?

Real steel parts?

Based on the customer service my brother experienced with Remington . It will lock up and fail at 5 rounds and take 3 months to fix.  Or like the bolt rifles from the custom shop with a 1 year delivery time

According to a flyer posted on Turnbull's FB page, all parts are "machined out of carbon steel."

I can't make out the MSRP besides the first digit (2), so seems it'll be two-thousand and something dollars.

Because they learned from the ACR debacle?

It might be because Turnbull is one of the few who can still do the older finishing processes, thanks to the EPA.

Aside from the finishing matter, Turnbull has been dealing with restoration of M1911 and M1911A1 pistols and producing their own period correct clone, neither of which Remington is in the business of doing. I suspect these are really Turnbull Heritage Edition pistols with Remington-UMC markings.

You have to be right, it makes more sense than anything else.

current M1911 Turnbulls sell at Cabellas for $1700 +/-
seems reasonable that the UMC rollmarks and charcoal blue add roughly $1000




NOT

Because they lack anyone with the skill to make a presentation grade firearm?  Because they know people who know craftsmanship and what it's worth will pay for the Turnbull name?  Because they wanted to make REALLY nice gun?

So they are basically just loaning the Remington trademark to Turnbull?

I guess you could look at it that way, but I'd imagine it's more a matter of Remington commissioning them to build 1,000 pistols to Remington's spec for Remington to sell. Kinda like Colt's "Competition" line of AR's.

Interesting that they have a lanyard in there, but the magazines don't appear to have the necessary loops to hook onto.

It has a loop on the mainspring housing.  

I may be wrong but I don't think all WWI era mags had a loop.
Link Posted: 1/28/2014 3:08:20 PM EDT
ARRRRR!!!!!!

Why can't they make them in a quantity where a guy could actually FIND one?

Damn. I'd love to have one.

Colt hit a home run with their WW1 re-pro.

I just hope we don't have to wait until 2041 to see another good M1911A1 repro.

Um, the primary purpose of the lanyard is to retain the pistol

Early versions of the 1911 had the lanyard loops on the magazines.  

From what I have read they changed mid-war to a loop on the mainspring housing.

They all had lanyard loops on the mainsping housing. Colt quit putting the lanyard loop on magazine around 1916. To my knowledge, Remington-UMC never made a mag with a lanyard loop.
