Welcome aboard and thanks for the report back! Glad you had no issues overall with it except with the 7+1. After having put several hundred through mine, I have had no problems with 7+1. It is a very natural feeling gun for sure. Field strip is not so natural lol! Your probably not going to be all warm and fuzzy feeling after that experience! But it really is a great gun. I'm glad I have the one I got.

Welcome aboard! Had mine for about two years now and love it! Definitely going to add another here someday. Glad to have you with us!

Why buy a R-51 Pistol / Re: Continued Sales?
« on: September 14, 2019, 02:59:48 AM »
I don't know what Remington could do to bring public trust in the R51 back.  Well, maybe "bringing trust back" is the wrong term, as it wasn't trusted from nearly the get go.  "Establish trust" might be a more accurate term.  I agree with others, it's likely dead.  I see Remington is offering "try before you buy" on their website, and lists of gunshops with ranges where one can test fire the R51 first to help along the decision making process.  It's a shame Remington screwed this up so badly early on.

Well, at least they didn't try to cover up the whole debacle when they released them to the public. Of their own will, issued a recall and furthermore, tried to work with each individual customer to make them happy. That's more than what Glock did when they had the little-known botched release of the Glock 26 if I remember correctly. That gun was jamming so bad on 9mm it wasn't funny. Truth was, the problem also lay in the magazines. However, there was an active cover up on Glock's part to hide the issue from the General Public because after all, Glock is infallible right? At least Remington openly admitted they screwed up. Heck Glock didn't offer to replace anyone's gun with a more reliable one  like Remington did with the 1911 R1. But shame on Remington though for not having the gun ready for prime time in the first place. That SHOULD have been squared away before production ever started. I am glad to see that some people are waking up to the fact that they are great little guns and are not deserving of the bad rap they have gotten over the past few years. Oh well, guess it's too late to resume production again. Who knows.

Oh, and P.S. to this as well. Whenever a Glock jams, nobody, I mean NOBODY hates on Glock and calls them ugly names. But when a longstanding American company screws up, the rabid comments and out right hatred comes out with no hesitation. Unbelievable.

“Stop sending up them negative waves Moriarty! Think that they will be there, and they will be baby.”

I wish they were coming back.....but this should be a lesson forevermore on why to never release a product unless it is ready for prime time.

Welcome! The answer to whether you should get one is a definite yes! You won’t regret it!

Grabagun worked well for me. They probably don’t anymore, but they used to have them for 14 bucks. But that is where all of mine came from, and I have no complaints.

Although I'm not one to normally quote the man, in this case Adolf Hitler's quotation is apropos: "I'd rather have 3 teeth pulled than to go through that again!".

He probably suspects that Fegelein designed the pistol to make his life miserable! 😂😂

Despite the reassembly issue, the R51 is still my favorite pistol. Shame Remington discontinued them.

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.
