I have a CrossBreed for my R51CT, and it fits perfectly.

@1911SHOOTER  Thanks for the detailed description.  Looks like the result is less spring pressure on the rounds. 

I only had one nosedive out of a hundred or so, and it was Wolf steel cased ammo - the top one in a 7 round load.  I did, however, notice that the top hollow point in a 7 round load acted like it partially hung on its way out of the mag.  Less spring pressure on the rounds would certainly ease those problems.  I'll give it a try.

Thanks again.

Greetings from the Deep South.  Just purchased an R51 for CC to add several other full sized 9mm pistols on my collection which are not CC.

I put about 100 rounds of mixed brands through it and had only one nose dive in the magazine by a Wolf steel cased round.

The 100 rounds did leave an open sore on my thumb web.  I purchased a set of wood grips that are a bit thicker than stock; and, hopefully, that will make things better.  If not, I guess it will be shooting gloves.

Onward and upward

This was before shortening the followers on 2 mags, have one that is still stock.
Will find out Tuesday at range if follower shortening and rounding off, shortening follower stopis issue.

Could you provide specifics or a link on how to do this?  TIA
