Title: New R51 owner here. Longtime gun collector from Kentucky.
Post by: jujonte on September 18, 2019, 04:34:56 AM
Just joined and looking forward to seeing how others like their R51. Since I just picked this up first impression is it is a solid platform that shoots great. Reassembly has been a learning experience. Hello to all and thanks for having me.

I love mine.  Shoots great, comfortable, aims easy, and has a trigger that teaches lessons to striker-fired guns.

But it's picky about ammo (has a very short Leade) and the mags aren't "drop free."

Peace favor your sword,
Kirk

"Get the tool" discussed in another thread here - that makes assembly/disassembly a breeze, instead of an almost impossible thumb-busting chore!

Welcome aboard! Had mine for about two years now and love it! Definitely going to add another here someday. Glad to have you with us!
