Springfield Lighweight Executive

On a couple other threads there was discussion on round butt ultras and I mentioned my love of the ultra platform and my wish for a Kimber round butt even if it meant one less round.
Then I ran across this Remington almost Ultra, a 3.5 inch, and it has a very sexy round butt. I think itís something I might be interested in.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this or better yet own one?

Nice find Skip, I never knew Remington made a round butt. At 3.5" it falls between an Ultra and a Pro.

I'm with Chuck, I had no clue Remington made a round butt, short barrel.

Looks good to me, never owned a Remmi. Looks like it could be the best of both worlds compromise. I assume that's a full size frame?

If so then the Super Carry Ultra Plus would do the same job with a half inch shorter barrel. I don't know the Remington price point. The SCU+ is $$, it took awhile but I finally found a good deal on a used SCU+.

Yeah, it’s sort of a compromise between an Ultra and Pro. Few reviews I read all are positive except for a lot of trigger creep which is easily fixed. Think I’ll try to get to handle one.
Sure wish Kimber would make a round butt ultra.

Skip, shop Gunbroker for a Super Carry Ultra+. You'll end up with a gun like the Remington with a 1/2" shorter barrel.

I think it looks nice. I read several positive reviews on Remington 1911s.


I found this on gun deals. It says shipping is $9.95.

Decent deal on the Remington. If he shops around, gets lucky, adds couple hundred might find a used SCU+.
Just which ever he wants to try.

Be careful what you offer. I may just pop up there for lunch and shooting one day. Youíre less than 3 hours away for me.
