I'm just glad I bought a 2nd Gen, not knowing anything about the recall, etc. Again, lots of good info on this site. Good luck!

Yes, and Biden just forbade further imports of Russian ammo, just as we all imagined. Good to see some posts on here, it was kind of dead for a while.

I have the same 'wordy' affliction, and touch-type. Don't have the same cool cars, though! Thanks.

I have found it interesting, that the smaller pistols get, the more people want to add huge sights, extended magazines, etc., etc., thus making them bigger and more clunkier than ever! It's a trend across all mfgrs.  :-\

An auction in Lancaster County, PA, has coming up this weekend (9/18/21) gun auction, an original Model 51 and a current R51. One can go on line to PA Auction Center, and look at the photos. You can bid on line or "live" in person as the sale is taking place; they often have bidders on phones. Check 'em out even just to see what they sell for, you can see realized values after the sale when they post the results. The owners are Amish, it's in East Earl, PA.

Thanks for the tip!

There's no doubt that there is a Scout memorabilia site; you probably know that already! Or searching e-bay, bet you did that, too! Good luck with your search!

Nah. Just got into other busy stuff. Have the after-market trigger, don't know if I want to put it in or not. Tiny little spring in there threw me off. Thanks.

Thanks for this info! My R51 has been apart for months now, just put it aside for a while. Will have to refer to much information just to re-acquaint with it.

The 'new guys' probably want nothing to do with the R51! Just sayin'

Relating to high ammo costs; imagine you go to the range, and there's a chromed metal box on the bench,into which you must insert 2 quarters for EACH shot you
take! Fifty, sixty cents a shot. That puts the cost of ammo into perspective. A small
dealer near me just sold 100 rounds of 9mm for $80.00! That's 80 cents per shot, but this is a "panic" period, and much stuff is being bought by people just for "pro-
tection", not regular gun-nuts like us!

You are right; but this pistol ain't comin' back now or ever! I like mine, don't get me wrong, but it's a "tainted" thing at this point. The pistol world will move on from this; there's so many choices out there, or will be at some point. Heard on the radio that the president if mulling over "exec. orders" he can pronounce to address the "gun issue". We live in 'interesting times'!
