R51 General Discussion / Re: How Long Does the R51 Have to Live?

With the rebates in effect, Iím not seeing the R51s in stock as much as a couple of months ago, so I think they are selling.  Not in huge numbers, but the inventory is shrinking.
As for Remingtonís default, I donít think the company will dissolve but a bankruptcy restructuring is likely.  In my opinion, the RP9 would be dropped before the R51 would.  Hopefully thereís been enough invested in the R51 to justify keeping it in production.

Great review! Also nice to hear that the Hydra-shocks fed with no issues.

     You are probably right about the strikes.   If you get a good strike and the cartridge does not ignite  it is a bad load. No way it is the R51.
Freedom munitions are sold bulk in a store front in Houston, Tx.   Not too impressive.
The primers had normal looking dimples, so Iím pretty sure it was an ammo issue.  I havenít had that issue with any other brands.  I picked up a couple of boxes at the Freedom Munitions storefront mainly to test the feeding function of the Hornady XTP bullet.  The prices at the FM storefront are nothing special, but their price on the XTP rounds was ok.  I wouldnít trust the FM rounds for self defense though.

Tried Sig 124 grain V Crown the other day in the R51.  The front of the bullet is too big and it would not feed.

I ran a couple of boxes of Freedom Munitions 124 grain Hornady XTP through my R51 today.  Had no problems feeding or cycling.  There were 2 rounds that didnít fire even though the primer strike looked good. They fired on the second try, but I donít think the R51 was at fault.

Since they hired the Taurus exec, maybe Remington intends to compete long term in the budget gun segment of the market. That seems to fit Remington's current handgun product line.

My first thought about the ARX bullets was that they might be too light to cycle the slide. If that's not a problem then I'll give the ARX a try.

So Iím trying to find a reliable self defense round for my R51.  I ran 50 rounds of Remington HTP 147 grain through it today.  Had 2 out of the 50 hang on the feed ramp.  Not quite good enough to make the cut.
Has anyone found a good one?

My accuracy has been better than all my other 9mm guns. I attribute much of that to the short trigger travel.

I have used Tractiongrips on other pistols and they work well.

It sounds like an occasional failure to feed is common with the R51 when new.  I had to give the slide a bump to get it to return to battery a few times.  After about 200 rounds the problem has not recurred.

Welcome from a fellow Texan!  Feel free to share your experience, good or bad, with your R51.
