Welcome to the forum!  Iím also a lifelong Texan. I picked up reloading a few years ago and find it to be a very satisfying hobby.

Welcome to the forum!  We will help with any issues or questions. Just about all issues stem from the magazines.

The picture of the R51 on the Buds website is not correct. The picture shows a 2014 Gen1 model which were all recalled by Remington.  The Gen 2 will have removable grip panels and a skeletonized trigger.

Welcome fellow Texan!  The action on the R51 works very well.  Any issues that it may have are with the magazines. The most common issue is that some magazines do not perform well when loaded with 7 rounds plus one in the chamber.  That issue can be resolved, so let us know if you experience this or any others.

Congratulations on your R51 and welcome to the forum!  Let us know your first impressions when you take it to the range.

Ordered one yesterday. $29.95 is just too low to pass up.

The wear on the aluminum frame is not too bad. It gets some dings and sharp edges, but nothing that would indicate a replacement is needed at this point. It seems like the front rails get most of the wear.

R51 General Discussion / Replaced R51 recoil spring
« on: December 17, 2019, 09:53:17 AM »
I decided that it was time to replace the recoil spring after about 2,500 rounds.  I donít know if it was really necessary but decided to do it anyway.  Called Remington and ordered a few for $2.95 each. They showed up a week later.
Just wanted to share that getting the spring was an easy process.

I think the G10 grips sold by Remington are supposed to fill your hand more than the stock grips.
