Other Guns - talk about them here / Re: 1911 R1-S

Well It finally started raining here and the ban's lifted so I got to the range last Friday with the new R1. Just like the 9mm this 45 is a sweet shooter, and very accurate. I only had two boxes of ball ammo with me and it ate every last one along with 14 rounds of American Gunner hollow-points without issue. First shots shown in the first two pictures. Third picture was several mags later. None less than 10 yards.

This is very discouraging. I don't blame you at all Pat for wanting to off that gun now. However, it might be a good idea to keep sending these back on Remington's dime just to get the point across that there's a definite problem that needs a viable fix.

I like it, pretty cool 8). How many rounds does the mag hold? I didn't know GSG made something like that. Not knowing much, or anything really, about the WWII rifle, I looked it up and came across this article. Talk about an ignorant woman. The least she could have done was to talk to a gun store to know what she had. A collector would have gladly taken it out of circulation for her.

Welcome from Arizona

I purchased the set and only installed the front sight, which was much better for me.  Conman37 has posted a picture of his modification on the remingtonowners.com website.  It looks like it was a lot of work, but he did a great job.
Over 800 rounds and no complaints,

The Trijicon front sight is .171" tall, and the rear is .232". Stock R51 sights are .180", front and rear. Using both front, and rear, Trijicon sights might send the POI to the moon

Welcome aboard Rat. I too did a few years in the USAF, retired in 2014.

I think it would be useful to document the changes between the Gen 1 and Gen 2 guns. Thanks!

I remember seeing something about all the changes, either on youtube or another website. I just can't remember where.

Glad you got the pin and can get back out with your R51. Last time I had mine apart, I couldn't believe the gunk that was built up in the FP channel. That was around the 900 round mark so It wouldn't have been too much longer before problems started. I think I'll only go about 500 rounds from now on before it gets a thorough cleaning.

I've been in TT a few times and they really don't keep much in stock. They have a showcase with a pretty good selection but that's where it stops. As for being a bit "shady", I can see that. There's only two stores, one by me and the other down in Phoenix and they can't even keep track of their own internet sale prices. I bought two pistols from them and, both times they tried to charge more until I asked them to check their website. They acted surprised when they saw the pricing compared to the in-store price sheet. Kind of felt like going to car dealership.

Welcome from Arizona. The Achilles heel of the R51 seems to be the magazines which is a shame because Remington had to have known this during testing. Hopefully we'll see some good mags being made by some reputable companies soon. The 1911s also seem to be plagued with mag issues but thankfully there's plenty of better choices available for them.

Welcome aboard Cary. We've got the same privilege out here in Arizona, plenty of forest service land to use as a shooting range. I also have a Shield 9 but it doesn't get carried much anymore since I got the Shield 45. Both have been absolutely perfect, but the 45 is a much nicer shooter and more accurate than the 9. Now my favorite 9mm is my new R1 Enhanced.

Here's to hoping they don't screw it up this time!
