Greetings from NC/Formerly WA
« on: January 07, 2018, 05:25:32 AM »
I purchased a new R51 Grey yesterday online, so I haven't received it yet. I am really looking forward to it.

A little over a year ago I was at the range with my son and another shooter came up to us and asked if we would like to try shooting his gun, an R51. He explained about the 2014 version and the recall. He had just received his new one from Remington and was shooting it for the first time. He was so excited he couldn't help but share it with us. When I shot it, I loved it immediately, and shot maybe 30% more accurately. No joke. My son loved it too. I wanted to buy one, so I started doing a little research... wow, what a major bubble popper. Almost everything I read was bad. Real bad. So, of course I never bought one. It stayed in the back of my mind, though. Yesterday I saw it online for $290 from a retailer I trust. With the $100 rebate from Remington... well, I just couldn't resist. I am now waiting with crossed fingers. Both hands.

BTW: There were no problems with the R51 we used on that day, but it was a limited exposure.

Welcome aboard from Louisiana! You made a good move to buy an R51. Once you learn what its idiosyncrasies are, it works out to be a great little gun. You will find lots of good info on here to help you as you go along. Glad to have you here!

Welcome from Texas!  Take all the negative talk about the R51 with a grain of salt.  Some folks have problems with their mags, but many are still venting as a result of the 2014 recall.  Let us know how yours is working.
