“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.
