Title: Ronnie from Texas
Post by: Ronv69 on June 04, 2019, 05:18:19 AM
I am 68.7 years old, Patron member of the NRA, and I own a R51. I am a part time gunsmith and I want to understand the issues that afflict this pistol. I have been shooting for 57 years, reloading for 40 years and gunsmithing for 37 years.
My friends call Ronnie. And I am a native of Texas.

Really not too many issues.

Of the top of my head, and in no particular order:


Peace favor your sword,

Welcome Ronnie from another native Texan. The action on the R51 works perfectly.  Magazines could use more design work though.
