    This is an outstanding gun and well worth the price. VERY tight tolerances, nice trigger even for a series 80. I frankly have 70 and 80 and don’t notice the difference. 500 rounds without a problem of FTF or FTE. Match barrel and busing. Match trigger, No abidextrous safety to chew up your shirts.

    You can’t go wrong with this gun either the regular R1 or Enhanced. I would howerver dump the fiber optic sight as I did for a night sight.
