Does anyone know if Remington 1911 R1 mags will fit the Ruger SR1911 and vice versa?

Pretty much all 1911 mags are interchangeable.

It may be the base pad design. I just checked my factory R1 mags (black and stainless) and both inserted correctly into an SR1911 but they do not look like they are fully seated. Did not check feed function but slide lock-back worked fine. The base pads of the 2 mags (R1 vs SR1911) are definitely different.

Back when I had both guns I was having issues with the factory supplied Remington mags in the Remington gun. Tried a mag from our Ruger and it worked great in the Remington. Tried a Remington mag in the Ruger and nothing but problems. It was basically a matter of poor quality mags supplied with the Remington, though, not something specific to the gun, itself.

I have a Para Expert that came with 2 8-round mags, made by Mec Gar & I got to free mags via mail in rebate made by Check Mate & initially had trouble with the slide locking back after the last round, but after a few passes with a jewelry file, they are OK now.:cool:

Every Ruger mag for the 1911 works fine and even the after market ones do well. The Remington one just didn't ...

Country Gal hit it,, I think. My R1 mags had problems locking in place. I ordered some stainless 1911 mags off ebay, and they worked great. End of the hiccups. So I never used the factory mags again.

I have both and they both take whatever mags I have ready including Colt and a few aftermarket.
