Welcome Rick!  I say the R51 is a buy with one caveat.  Anyone who has lost too much strength and dexterity in their hands might struggle with field stripping and reassembly.  However there is a member here who makes a tool to solve that issue.

Welcome Ronnie from another native Texan. The action on the R51 works perfectly.  Magazines could use more design work though.

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

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

Why buy a R-51 Pistol / Re: How many

Thatís correct. They are the same except for the manufacturing stamp. Itís still a good reason to get a 2nd one. Thatís how I can tell the two I have apart.

How to sign up - the rules / Re: r 51 videos

There is definitely a lot of groupthink on the video reviews.  It seems to be a bias against Remington too.  A Sig or Ruger that has major problems seems to get a pass but everyone wants to bash Remington.

When a company goes public, itís vulnerable to the wolves.

R51 General Discussion / Re: R51 Officially Discontinued
« on: May 08, 2019, 12:06:43 PM »
I sent Remington an email a few weeks ago expressing support for further development of the R51.  I received a prompt reply and the representative said that he liked the R51 for the same reasons but was unsure whether production would be continued or not.

The R1 Enhanced is a smart looking 1911.

Does the firing pin hole on the Peterson block look different on the two guns? Is one larger or have more rounded edges?

I completely agree, Swschu. 
I like to think that even if Remington discontinues production, they can always start producing the R51 again at a later date.  Iím thinking that a lot will depend on Remingtonís financial health over the next few years.  At Shot show this year, it seemed like Remington is focusing on their hunting rifles and shotguns rather than self defense products. I can certainly understand that strategy.  The hunting market is Remingtonís identity and if they lose that, then Remington as we know it will cease to exist.

Are the cratered primers failing to fire?  I have noticed that primers that have a cratered appearance after firing is not uncommon with many types of 9mm ammo. And it happens using a variety of different pistols. 
Unless the rounds are failing to eject, I just ignore it.
