R51 General Discussion / R51 barrels on ebay cheap
« on: December 20, 2017, 04:49:54 AM »
Noticed these a while ago on ebay:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-REMINGTON-R-51-FACTORY-STEEL-BARREL-9mm-LUGER-P-R51-GENUINE-OEM/351113481081?hash=item51bffe8b79:g:k2UAAOxy7vJTdi9J:sc:USPSFirstClass!30047!US!-1


I'm guessing these are leftovers from the gen1's.  Kind of an indication that the gen1's weren't turned into scrap, though I'm guessing a barrel with an unknown round count couldn't be legitimately sold in a new gun.

I wouldn't be surprised if triggers, mag catches, pins, magazine parts, etc.... from the gen1's made it into the gen2's.  I wouldn't think the slide or pederson block would make it as these items were the problem.  Probably not the frame either as the pederson block tended to dig two trenches across the top of the frame, though maybe this could be fixed somehow.

R51 General Discussion / Ordered up another r51

Got my second r51 on black Friday.  Guess this will be the third I've had to date.   I had one of the first gens.  Liked that one too.  Tweaked a few things to let it sortof work.  Ultimately sent it back though.

I see the unfavorable reviews and can't see how they come to their conclusions.  The gun is accurate, has much less muzzle flip, and is easy to shoot fast.  Very fun gun to shoot.

Hopefully they keep production going.  If they run the rebate again I'll probably get a third.
