I recommend buying one. It makes for a great carry gun. Just keep in mind that you may or may not have to do some tweaking to it to get it 100%. If you don't want to take the time to fiddle with it, I would advise not getting one. However, if want to take a chance on it, now is most certainly the time as prices seem to have gone down significantly from when some of us initially bought them. Me personally, I would buy up every last one if I had the money right now.

Flatearther beat me to it. I have been on a brief early summer hiatus. Welcome aboard Victor, glad you could find two of them! I expect prices to go down slightly further before they bottom out. Looks like we still may see some good deals for a little while to come.

So.....what's the gripe? Saying you wouldn't buy a gun because of ONE malfunction in 1000 rounds? In my opinion it shows what lack of experience you have in handling guns if you shy from one that produces results like that. 99% of all cases it is simply remove the mag, rack the slide, and re-insert and you are good to go. Very rarely do you have a fight ending malfunction, and very rarely is it the guns fault. If he really knew what the heck he was doing, it wouldn't be a problem for him.

Welcome aboard! 

Oops, I see your gun is a Charlotte frame - both of mine are Huntsville; hence the H in the Serial.  Still is yours a smokey?

He did say gray, so I am assuming that it is a smokey. So far all of the smokies that are out there are of Huntsville production.

Please do. I hope this is only temporary. I think that even after a terribly rocky start, the R51s popularity may actually be slowly on the rise. It would be a shame to kill it now.

I would have to see it done before I made a final judgement call, but my guess is the R51 has too small a grip surface area for something like that. The 1911 is perfect for those because it has such large grips. But I wouldn't mind seeing some trial grips made up. Maybe Rita Hayworth, Ginger Rogers or any of the Vargas girls. But the 1911 almost demands having those grips.

Say, that poor gun has see some humidity hasn't it? I haven't seen one look so bad before. Of course the grips look great!

I'm at 200, and mine still won't charge from a full mag and the slide closed.

Your follower legs need to be trimmed. I took about 1/16" off mine and that fixed the problem.

I have a lot of scratch marks on mine too. Normal from what I have found out. Ill post some pics of mine later if I can find them. Glad to hear your pistol is running like it should.
