R51 General Discussion / Re: Original R51 (1920's version)

GONRA  has 2 Model 51 .380's.  Great shooters.
As far as I know, these Remngton Model 51's and the new R51's
are the ONLY  commercial DELAYED BLOWBACK ACTION pistols,
so all of them are neat collector items.

R51 General Discussion / Re: Extractor Spring???

GONRA remembers that the 35mm Oerlikon high speed antiaircraft cannon
used/uses a huge "hard rubber appearing" extractor spring.

lklawson  sez:
  "In some ways, it kind of reminds me of my CZ52. 
   I have to use a tool to take out the barrel in that"
GONRA sez - Czechs want you to use the lip on base of the CZ52 mag.
Sticks in there to "unlock the rollers" for relatively easy barrel removal.

Picky Picky GONRA reminds ya'll that its "Pedersen".   "e" not "o".

As ya'll no, he designed all sorts of crazy stuff.

For example, most of you probably have the "Pedersen Device".
(Don't we wish!)

Do hava   ".276 Vickers Pedersen" 10 shot semiauto rifle +
6 (try to find even ONE of these!) enbloc clips.

(Shoots great - BUT REMEMBER LUBRICATED ammo cases!
Pedersen shoulda invented the "fluted chamber " to avoid this!
Oh Well.....)

GONRA's never tried the Ruger ARX ammo.
Not too interested In wierd boolits unless they are tracers or bangers.

GONRA wonders - were you shootin' Factory Ammo?  Or ???

GONRA's shiny new R51 is really pleasant to shoot with  Winchester 9mm Luger 115 gn. FMJ  Q4172 Factory ammo.                                               MT's land around my feet.     Nice square notch easy to pickup sights!
Disassembly is "interesting".  Gotta verk on that....                                         79 year olde Finger Dexterity doesn't help....
Purchased this asa DELAYED BLOWBACK to add to my "Mechanism Collection".                                                                                                          Only other "delayed blowbacks" on hand are 2 .380 ACP Remington M51's from looong ago.                                                                                              These are beautiful firearms - shoot great!
Currently plan to only shoot Winchester 115 gn, FMJ factory ammo.                                                                                                        Scared to shoot my Prize Winning Handloads and void the warranty.
Am anxious to see what others think as tyme goes on.
R51's are gonna be a Big Success as loong as one keeps 'em CLEAN.                                                                                                     Can't get an unburned powder ball in those closely fitted parts! ..
