Remington R51 Facts and Specs / Re: A Brief History of the R51
« on: November 13, 2020, 12:45:03 AM »
Nothing official other than replies from Remington customer service.  But then again, Remington was never forthcoming on the R51 since the beginning.

Received a reply from Remington, no more R-51 production.

I'm guessing there was a glut of r51's and r51 accessories lying around earlier this year.  This current environment has probably allowed retailers to finally move these excess guns.  I was hoping there would be a final clearance of r51's at firesale prices, but I'm guessing that isn't going to happen.  They will be able to sell the remaining guns, and the new owners will probably announce it's discontinuation early next year.  I wonder if r51's are currently in production?

Remington discontinued the R51 in 2018 and all of the fire sales have already happened.  Accessories were always pretty limited and are mostly gone.  You can find some things here and there online.

Assuming you are right handed?

You mean like the S&W M&P Shield .40 or .45 which are both smaller than the R51?  Still, wishful thinking...

Welcome!  There is a lot of good information in this forum to get you going.  Aftermarket accessories are getting pretty slim since they quit making the gun in 2018.

The sale of Remington Outdoors has been approved by a bankruptcy court judge on September 29, 2020.  Remington will be broken up into 7 different entities:

o   Vista Outdoor Inc. (Federal Ammo, Bushnel) to purchase majority of assets- ammunition, accessories, brand and trademarks
o   Sturm Ruger & Co. Inc. to purchase Marlin firearms business
o   Roundhill Group LLC (Real Estate Investors) to purchase the non-Marlin firearms business including Ilion, NY plant and museum
o   Sierra Bullets LLC to purchase Barnes ammunition business
o   JJE Capital Holdings LLC (Palmetto State Armory) to purchase DPMS, H&R, Stormlake, AAC, and Parker brands
o   Franklin Armory Holdings LLC to purchase Bushmaster brand and related assets
o   Sportsman's Warehouse Inc. to purchase TAPCO brands

So it is possible that Roundhill could bring back the Gen3 R51 and perhaps even make the .40 and .45 versions once promised.  Here's to wishful thinking...

Very interesting.  I'll have to try different head positions next time I'm at the range, even though I wear my bifocals when shooting.

Welcome to the forum.  Are you an R51 owner or just a fan?  Do you have any experiences/wisdom to share?  Let us know.  There is a lot of useful information on the forum.

If anyone is interested, there is a very low serial number - 0000627R51 - on GunBroker right now.  The serial number indicates that it is an early Gen 1 "Testing & Evaluation" handgun.  Most likely one that was sent to a reviewer.  However, it has been updated to Gen 2 specs.

My wife took the smokey to the range.  She ran 50 rounds through it with no problems.  I also shot another 50 through it with no problems.  It does seem to shoot  low and to the left.  The laser guard is not sighted in so that will help on accuracy.  The rear sight can be adjusted for windage but not elevation.  May look at machining the front sight so the top is lower.

I know that Cameron is in the National Guard.  He may be busy doing COVID duty.

Kirk- I know that you know this, but for others that are reading this- this gun uses the "combat" sight picture and not the typical "center hold" sight picture.  And that is confirmed by Remington.  If you are shooting low on your target, this could be the cause.  Click on this to see the sight picture:
