If anyone is interested, there is a Gen 1 for sale on Gunbroker

A cool listing for sure. Itís kind of shocking to see one still left in the wild. Some collector needs to scoop it up.

I was always hoping for the updated version of the model 53 which was the .45 ACP version of the model 51.  Supposedly the Marines preferred it over the Colt 1911.  Who knows, it could still happen...  R53?

^^^^^^ This!!!!!

One other observation......the r51 has problems feeding.  Could this be because we're basically using a 45acp mag for 9mm?  The rm380 gets a nice spacer in the back of the mag to fit the 380.  Why doesn't the r51 get this?

Lookie lookie

Dug these old pics up from a thread I started a long time ago. 45 ACP fits like a glove. Go get you a 1911 mag and stick it up the mag well. Let me know how it fits. Iíve tried it! Lol

Just watched the video again and saw the serial number as H016688R51 so it should be an early 2017 Huntsville production.

Yeah, I saw it was a Huntsville gun. They got the Gen 2 guns working fine, his problem is magazine related Iím sure.

And as far as slide bite goes, you have to be intentionally riding up on it quite a ways to get slide bite. If you hold it correctly, it wonít happen. Thatís why I say it was intentional. Haters suck. I think that SootchOO and HRfunk gave quality, honest reviews of the gun.

Funny because TBF TV just posted a new video not too long ago bashing the R51 calling it a piece of junk. The guy who reviewed it, ďHopĒ I believe, was just trying to find things to blackball it with. He even whined about slide bite. Shouldnít be a problem if you hold the gun correctly. The R51 slide is high enough it wonít bite if you arenít riding up on it. He didnít even acknowledge the mag problems, but bashed the gun as a whole. Oh well, haters will be haters.

As an M1 Garand collector, the M1a is a fitting capstone needed for the collection. Alas, I donít want to have to shell out $1500 right now! Lol. It would be a perfect Zombie Apocalypse gun for sure. Maybe one day though.

Smoke color, Huntsville marked H025XXXR51.  Remington says June of 2018.

Interestingly enough, most all of the Smokies are Huntsville frames and have serials starting in the 25xxx block. I wonder if any Charlotte Smokies will surface, or if they are all Huntsville frames.

Was at the range today testing some new powders through the R51. Looks like I found a new favorite with the 120TC. 6.8 grains of AA#7 pushes these an average of 1079fps and are as accurate as can be.

Nice grouping there! Which bullets where you using for these shots?

I own two one has been at Remington for nine months - will it ever return.

Seriously? I would have already been on them wanting to know where it is, and when it will return.
