R51 General Discussion / Re: New R51 performance (video link)
« on: June 29, 2018, 08:39:53 AM »
I posted this on the youtube vid comment section, but I'll mention it here as well... You need to use a "combat center hold" when shooting the R51. This means that you cover your desired point of impact with the dot on the front sight. Nice review, btw! I've shot hundreds of rounds through mine with only a handful of problems (and those were early on).

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
« on: November 26, 2017, 01:09:39 PM »
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...
