Hello R-51 Pistol forum membersAs you no doubt notice this forum looks different. I had to perform a major update due to some problems that were preventing the forum from loading. More >> http://r51pistol.com/index.php/topic,824.0.html

Quote from: Chokejug on October 28, 2017, 10:02:28 PMI "suppose"that my new R51, that just came yesterday has the "new ones"?Any way, they certainly have a super "non-intuitive" lip bend!It looks like there is a tiny lip bent up directly in line "to stop", even a round nosed bullet!And in fact did exactly that for me, maybe 8 or ten times out of 84 rounds fired yesterday!It looks to me like a Rube Goldgberg attempt to stop "nose diving"!If that is their "fix", to keeping the first two rounds in the magazine from doing so, it is sure a sorry attempt!Too early, and not enough info yet, to be making any modifications, but certainly a possibility.

If they were really new magazines, I would expect them to be in that plastic box packaging that is a PITA to get open. Bass Pro here has some available, but they are $35. Too high for my budget. Ironically, they have no more R51s though.
