Victor from Texas
« on: June 14, 2019, 04:52:56 AM »
Hi All,

I am very happy to find this group.  I have done very little shooting over the last 40 years, but am now getting back into it.  I found out about the R51 from an instructor at Marksman range, and bought one from Bud's really cheap and loved it.  I began looking into buying a Crimson Trace sight for it, and discovered I could buy another R51, with the  Crimson Trace already installed, for not too much more than buying the Crimson Trace Alone.  Now I own 2 R51s and am very pleased with them

Welcome Victor... The R51 has apparently been discontinued so glad you found two at a good price... Joe

Yes, I checked the 2019 Remington catalog, and did not see the R51, so I called Remington and they confirmed that it was discontinued to me over the phone.  Do you know if anyone offers an "armorer's kit" that contains the parets of an R51 that are likely to wear out?

I don't know of any parts sources but expect others may chime in... Good luck!

Welcome to the forum Victor!  Several of us here own more than one R51 also.

I emailed Remington about replacement recoil springs and the reply said Remington would sell them to me.  Maybe other parts are available too.

Flatearther beat me to it. I have been on a brief early summer hiatus. Welcome aboard Victor, glad you could find two of them! I expect prices to go down slightly further before they bottom out. Looks like we still may see some good deals for a little while to come.
