Other Guns - talk about them here / Re: R1 $75 Cash Rebate
« on: May 11, 2019, 03:30:14 AM »
Grab-a-Gun has the enhanced 9mm for $559. This is my favorite 9mm and to get one for under 5 large after rebate I'd recommend jumping on it if you're interested. I'm hoping GaG drops the price of the 45 enhanced before the end of the rebate so I am forced to buy one also. :'(

I had the opposite problem with mine when it was new, dead trigger. It would travel all the way to the rear but wouldn't catch the sear. Turned out to be a very hokey disconnector design. The trigger bar hangs on each side of the disconnector and mine was bent incorrectly so the bar was slipping past the sear. I opted to fix it myself instead of sending it in and has been trouble free for well over 1000k rounds.

Here's the reply from Remington when I asked them about producing the R9. It's no wonder they have been sucking hind-tit in the handgun arena. They should start reading and try to understand what the gun community wants, and smaller compact 9's is where it's at.

"Good afternoon sir,

Thank you for visiting Remington Country! We certainly appreciate you taking the time to write in with your question. At this time Remington has no plans to produce the Rohrbaugh R9. We appreciate your interest in our products. Thank you and have a great day."

What they need to do is to start producing the R9, like they did the RM380. Rohrbaugh already did the hard work on a great design. I bet they'd sell more than all their handguns combined.

I found 220 for smokes today 03-06-2019 with 10.95 shipping. Not bad!

Yep, from LockedLoaded

My thought is that if Remington redesigned the magazines, then that would take care of 99.9% of any existing issues with the R51.

This would definitely be a viable fix for all the issues we've been hearing about with the R51. Remington should have contracted their magazine production to whoever produces mags for S&W.

Welcome. I believe a lot of the bad press with the R51, and much of the Remington offerings for that matter, are from people who have never touched one. I'll admit my 51 hasn't been 100%, but other than one magazine's occasional glitch, it's been damn close. I also have a RM380, two R1 1911s and an 870 from Remington which all have been outstanding.

Welcome from Arizona. I agree with the field-stripping non-issue. I actually enjoy tinkering with the R51 and find most other pistols boring by comparison.

General Discussion / Re: 9MM Hand Load for the R-51
« on: December 16, 2018, 06:32:32 AM »
I haven't been reloading very long but found 4.7gn of HP38 slinging a 115gn coated round nose bullet works good in all my 9s and is very accurate. I've compared the primers and brass to Hornady 124gn +P through my R51 and didn't see any notable differences. I just picked up some Longshot for my 10mm loads and want to compare it to the HP38 in 9mm as well. It's supposed to give a higher velocity at a significantly lower pressure.
