Have you tried contacting the National Scouting Museum at Philmont?  They have an extensive research library.  I would also try going to a local trade-o-ree.  It's mostly patches but some guys have rare stuff like what you are looking for.

What's it apart for?  Are you planning on making some mods?

Roundhill LLC has the RemArms website up and running but it looks like they don't update it.  Under handguns it shows the R-1911 but no mention of the R51 even under Support>Firearm History.

There is a Gen 1 R51 for sale on Gunbroker, serial number 0009191R51.  That is a high serial number for Gen 1, right when they issued the recall.

The parent company of Palmetto State Armory is JJE Capital Holdings LLC who purchased DPMS, H&R, Storm Lake, AAC, and Parker brands.  The parent company of Federal Ammunition is Vista Outdoors who purchased Remington ammunition.  The Roundhill Group purchased the Remington Firearms business (except Marlin) and is currently producing the model 870 shotgun in Ilion, NY.

Here is a video from the re-opened Remington Lonoke ammunition plant.

Did you ever sell the two-tone from last year?

The Remington plant in Ilion, NY reopened in early April with 45 employees returning to work.  200 will return by the end of the month (April 2021).  They are going to start production with the model 870 shotgun.  Question - Are unionized employees bad for Remington?

Glad to help.  The gun itself does not need any work, except periodic maintenance.  The only modification you need to make is to the magazines.  So no need to worry about modifying the gun.  First make sure that you have the revised Gen 2 magazines, which I'm sure you have.  Here is the video to fix the magazines, he demonstrates exactly what you are describing.  By the way, where (what general location) did you purchase the gun and have you asked them where they got it from?  Just curious how far away from Huntsville it traveled.

Ain't gonna happen; these guns are "dead", and too small for such ctgs. There's plenty of small semi-autos on the market in those calibers...

Yes, for now the gun is dead.  Vista Outdoor came and took all the manufacturing equipment out of the Huntsville plant.  So it would be hard to start production back up.  Maybe at their next 100 year celebration they'll bring it back.  However, I disagree on the "too small for such cartridges."  Remington themselves announced that it was part of the plan to have other calibers in the R51.  And yes there are plenty of conceal carry pistols out there in .45 ACP, .40 S&W, and even in 9mm Luger.  Some even smaller than the R51.  Heck, the R51 with all its issues and bad reviews still sold out at every gun store.  Just curious about what the folks in the Ilion, NY plant are doing.  They supposedly went back to work at the beginning of March.  Did Ilion get rid of their equipment to make 1911s when the Huntsville plant opened?  Hope not.

I'm not sure if they were ever actually produced but the 2014 Remington catalog showed them as an accessory option.  The barrels were also shown at all the shows at the Remington booth, so they existed in some limited form.

@Gorillaman- after some further research on the out-of-sequence serial number on your pistol, I have found something very interesting.  In the 2018 Remington catalog, where the Smoke made it's first debut, they have, what I believe, is your R51 photographed in the catalog.  I think we can say that you have the prototype Smoke model R51.  That, my friend, is a collector piece!

Yeah that seems fair.  And it looks like a legit Storm Lake barrel with the "9mm Luger +P" markings.  The ones Cameron offered did not have those markings.

Hopefully Roundhill will do something with the R51 in the future now that the users have figured out how to make the gun function properly...  Still hoping for the R52 (.40 S&W) and the R53 (.45 ACP).
