    Finally had a chance to shoot mine. I was not very impressed with the accuracy – but then, it is hardly broken in yet. But for comparison, my Springfield full size shoots tight groups at 25 yards with just about any ammo and did so right out of the box. For the R1, all of the ball ammo was on paper, but with scatter at 10 yards. Hollow points of the same weight were hit or miss. If it does not tighten up soon, maybe I will look into getting a Wilson Combat barrel?? RM
