R51 General Discussion / Re: Holster
« on: January 12, 2019, 01:56:02 PM »
I found a place on Amazon with a holster for the R51.  From the Amazon photo it looked exactly like the R51 holster on the Remington website.  I ordered it and received it today.  It DOES look exactly like Remington's holster.  It is very well made, the fit is superb, and the retaining strap goes over the back of the slide NOT over the grip safety.  It's made by J&J Leather Sales out of Ocala, FL specifically for the R51.  The only differences are that instead of a Remington embossing on the front it is embossed with J&J and it's about $20 cheaper ($44.95 plus shipping).

Hello, All - Any suggestions for a good OWB holster with a thumb break?  I've got a couple of Makarov holsters which fit great BUT the thumb break strap goes over the grip safety.  When snapped the strap doesn't depress the grip safety but the thought of going over the grip safety gives me the heebie-jeebies.  I'd like to find one where the strap goes over the back of the slide.  Thanks in advance.

R51 General Discussion / Contact with Remington

Greetings All - I have had contact with Remington and, for what it's worth, wanted to share.  A as some background, I live about 15 miles from the Big Green Huntsville facility but I learned their e-mail address for queries by perusing this site night before last.  That is when I queried them.  My question was that I have an R-51 stamped Charlotte, NC, do I a Gen 1 or 2, where it was made, and date of manufacture.  I supplied the Serial # 00176XXR51 and got a response yesterday (pretty dadgum quick).  The reply was, "Your R51 is a GEN II manufactured in 2016 at the facility in Huntsville, AL.  There were no changes in the frame and those made in Charlotte were used in the Huntsville plant. Thank you for contacting Remington".  So, don't know if this is helpful or makes thing clear as mud but wanted to share.  Regards and out here.
