I've submitted two Remington 1911 rebates over the last several years and it does take the maximum time denoted on the rebate form to receive the check. But I did ultimately receive the checks without a hitch and was very happy.
I bought my R1 Carry Commander 3 or 4 years ago when they had the $150 rebate during Thanksgiving week. Academy sports had decided to discontinue carrying them and marked them down to $499.88. I bought 4 of them and gave 1 to each of my sons for Christmas & kept one. As far as bang for the buck, one of the best guns I've ever purchased. In this picture, it has an STI hammer but I swapped that out and installed Ed Brown internals and a Wilson Combat Ultramatch trigger. It now has a crisp, 3lb trigger pull & is a fine shooting 1911.
