R51 General Discussion / Fell in love again...
« on: March 25, 2018, 08:30:26 AM »
So, took the R51 to the range yesterday for the first time in a while... 100 rounds (handloads with a wide variety of brass)... Not a single blip! I had kinda forgotten how great this massively underrated pistol is! Accurate, reliable, and, dare I say, VERY good looking! What a great pistol!!!

I stopped using Full30 after watching a few of the videos posted by RoyalNonesuch. IMHO, that guy is truly dangerous! Does a lot of unsafe (to say the least!) things from making and firing homemade guns to (I just checked) making your own flamethrower. I asked that he be removed from the site, but that obviously hasn't happened. If YouTube keeps going the way it is, I may reconsider, but I REALLY wish they wouldn't post RoyalNonesuch's videos.

Just to add my 2 cents... I load Xtreme plated 115 gr bullets over 4.7 gr of W231 and a COAL of 1.15" and get about 1070 fps. Haven't had any malfunctions with this combo... I also use the same load in my other 9mms (Luger, Walther P1, and Kahr CM9).

One of my favorite LGS's recently dropped Big Green because of their pricing policies.


“LGS” ?

I think that's what I said...

I'm pretty sure it means removing the barrel from the pistol and dropping a round into it to make sure it seats to the correct depth. It makes a "plunk" sound... Nothing to do with my user name, btw...

I second the Ruger ARX - super accurate, low recoil, and devastating on soft targets. As I said in another thread, the only weird thing is the little triangular holes they leave in paper. I use the .380 version of ARX in my PPK and Sig P238 as well.


R51 General Discussion / Re: shooting low

At 50 feet, mine is right on with a "combat hold" - i.e. putting the front "dot" on top of (i.e. covering) the target. It kinda makes sense that it would shoot a little low at the "normal" 7 yards, which is where I assume you're shooting(?)

I just took a look at mine and I think you could file the front sight down and re-do the dot. In fact, you could probably file it down to a post and just paint it white.

I've never had the problem you're having (and mine is an NC frame, too), but I guess a lot of people do. Have you tried locking the slide back, inserting the mag, and chambering a round and then topping off the mag so you have 7+1 and then firing it? This is probably a better way to load it anyway...

Mines a Charlotte, too, and it has had over 500 rounds through it with very few failures - one or two in the last 400 rounds or so. Shot it with reloads on Saturday with no failures of any kind.

I use Ruger ARX and have had no problems, but then again, I have had very few problems anyway...

I use Ruger ARX ammo as my carry in both my R51 and Sig P238. It works great in both pistols with nary a bobble in either and is more accurate than any of my other ammo, although I don't shoot a lot of it 'cause it's kinda pricey and I handload. If you shoot paper, be prepared for some funny-looking holes, though! It makes little triangles instead of circles...

I just "plunk-checked" my reloads and they are perfect... You might have a lemon barrel(?) Not sure if it makes any difference, but I bought mine right after the Gen 2s came out and haven't had any of the problems I have seen people talk about on this forum (after about the first 100 rounds).
