I have two favorites for mine. For carrying Iwb with no undershirt, I use a N8 holster.  Otherwise I use an Aliengear 3.5.  I might get a Kydex holster from Cookís Holsters because itís available with leather belt loops in place of the belt clip.

Both of mine shoot to point of aim, fortunately.  Iíve given up on loading it to 7 + 1. Even with the mags that do not bind, itís still not 100% chambering the second round.  All the mags run 100% loaded 6+1, which is good why I can confidently carry it when loaded that way.

Mine has a similar alignment and is all original.  It hasnít resulted in any issues.

The slide stop lever should slip under the wire spring, unless the spring is bent and not sitting in the correct position.

Welcome and congratulations on your new R51.

Does the tighter pin make the mag release button hard to push?

If you want a more tacky grip, then you can try the stick on grips by Talon Grip.  They have two different grip surfaces- one is rough like sandpaper and the other a textured rubber material

I think Kirk had the same issue with cast truncated cone bullets a while back.  Maybe he will post a solution if he ever found one.
In other forums, it seems truncated cone 9mm loads often have this issue though.

Well, mine only walks out the right side.  I can stick a piece from a Talon grip (or any tape) over the pin hole.

If you can field strip and reassemble a 1911, then you will have no trouble with the R51.
