I'm at 200, and mine still won't charge from a full mag and the slide closed.

Your follower legs need to be trimmed. I took about 1/16" off mine and that fixed the problem.

I have a lot of scratch marks on mine too. Normal from what I have found out. Ill post some pics of mine later if I can find them. Glad to hear your pistol is running like it should.

Update.  We're at 135 rounds and the piece is definitely getting more reliable. Still experimenting with different ammo...

Glad to hear! I am at almost 400 rounds, and zero malfunctions myself! This little pistol in my opinion (other than Remington's remake of the 1911)  is perhaps the best remade pistol of the 21st Century.

Well, i guess its time to start waiting for the big liquidation clearance.  When I start seeing these going for $100-150, ill buy a ton of them.

Im guessing when there is an official announcement that it's being discontinued, this will confirm everyone's bias that these were junk.  I would imagine thats when the firesale will start.

Personally, id ditch every other handgun i own in favor of these.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Dito. My strategy exactly.

I am hoping for prices to dip to $150 or so before I buy again. Especially since they are now no longer a production pistol.

Been away for a week, but all I can say is that I am impressed! May have to spring for one next pay check!

I would love one. $30 range would be perfectly doable.

Thank you for your affirmation. I would be a terrible shame to see this extremely capable and well-made firearm fall from favor simply due to inept reviewers and users.

Well, I literally just got back from the range a few minutes ago and saw your post. I just ran about 28 rounds through it (mixed FMJ and Federal Hydra-Shok) and not the first hiccup. Funny how the haters (trashing a respected American company) came out of the woodwork for the R51 but the whole debacle with the Glock (Austrian) 42 was just gently smoothed over as an "oops" moment and shoved under the rug. I think the R51 is  maybe starting to slowly get some positive attention in the gun world. Or at least I hope so.

Welcome aboard! Glad to have you with us! I wholeheartedly agree with your opinions on the little pistol. It continues to be maligned by haters who just want to hate. I carry mine with confidence as well. As much confidence as I would carry my 1911.

Welcome! Glad to have you with us! Kudos to you for giving the little pistol a chance. So many folk just trash it and do not give it a second thought. Glad you are enjoying it!

You guys are making me want to buy another now! Can't turn one down at these prices!

Remington is still showing the pistol in their catalog. I haven't heard any industry news reporting that they have or are going to quit making them anytime soon. I am hoping that they will start to gain a little bit more of a following and hopefully be successful.
