R51 General Discussion / Re: Remington name changed to Para?
« on: December 30, 2017, 03:17:21 AM »
Para is one of the brands owned by the Remington Outdoor Company.  Para Ordnance was a maker of 1911s that was bought by the Freedom Group (now known as  Remington Outdoor Company) a few years back.  So I don't see any issues here.  It is simply being shipped by a division of Remington.

Why buy a R-51 Pistol / Why I Bought an R51

I'm a retired engineering manager and have always been fascinated with ingenious mechanisms.  I like the way the Pedersen action works and have been interested in R51s since they first came out.  Recently Remington offered a $100 rebate.  The rebate, combined with my points at Cabela's, brought the price down to $100.  How could I not buy a cool gun for $100?!

I have a number of firearms.  I often carry a Taurus TCP in a pocket holster, but I wanted a carry gun with a harder hitting caliber.  Once broken-in I'm hoping that the R51 is reliable enough to be a carry gun.  Incidentally, my favorite handguns in my collection are a Remington R1, CZ 75BD, and a first gen S&W 66.

I bought an R51 a few days ago and I'm looking forward to shooting it.  My wife and I have a number of guns and we compete in Cowboy Action Shooting.
