The sale of Remington Outdoors has been approved by a bankruptcy court judge on September 29, 2020.  Remington will be broken up into 7 different entities:

o   Vista Outdoor Inc. to purchase majority of assets- ammunition, accessories, brand and trademarks
o   Sturm Ruger & Co. Inc. to purchase Marlin firearms business
o   Roundhill Group LLC to purchase the non-Marlin firearms business including Ilion, NY plant and museum
o   Sierra Bullets LLC to purchase Barnes ammunition business
o   JJE Capital Holdings LLC to purchase DPMS, H&R, Stormlake, AAC, and Parker brands
o   Franklin Armory Holdings LLC to purchase Bushmaster brand and related assets
o   Sportsman's Warehouse Inc. to purchase TAPCO brands

So it is possible that Roundhill could bring back the R51 as a Gen3 model and make the .40 and .45 versions once promised.  Here's to wishful thinking...

Very interesting.  I'll have to try different head positions next time I'm at the range, even though I wear my bifocals when shooting.

Welcome to the forum.  Are you an R51 owner or just a fan?  Do you have any experiences/wisdom to share?  Let us know.  There is a lot of useful information on the forum.

If anyone is interested, there is a very low serial number - 0000627R51 - on GunBroker right now. https://www.gunbroker.com/item/877007976  The serial number indicates that it is an early Gen 1 "Testing & Evaluation" handgun.  Most likely one that was sent to a reviewer.  However, it has been updated to Gen 2 specs.

My wife took the smokey to the range.  She ran 50 rounds through it with no problems.  I also shot another 50 through it with no problems.  It does seem to shoot  low and to the left.  The laser guard is not sighted in so that will help on accuracy.  The rear sight can be adjusted for windage but not elevation.  May look at machining the front sight so the top is lower.

I know that Cameron is in the National Guard.  He may be busy doing COVID duty.

Kirk- I know that you know this, but for others that are reading this- this gun uses the "combat" sight picture and not the typical "center hold" sight picture.  And that is confirmed by Remington.  If you are shooting low on your target, this could be the cause.  Click on this to see the sight picture: https://i1.wp.com/reddotshooters.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Combat-Sight-Picture-1.png?resize=624%2C218&ssl=1

The deal is at classic firearms.  R51 plus 3 magazines at $249.  The price keeps creeping up from $229 to $239 and now $249.
