@4 Ghost - I think she wants you to respond to her email.

@mr220v- when I examined the two slides side by side, I observed the opposite of what you are describing.  I was hoping it would be as easy as removing some material to make it function smoother.  It appears that the pocket in the slide that the hump of the breach block sits in has too much material already removed.  Some of the other internal lugs are chamfered in the Gen 1.  Again, too much material removed.  But I will look at it again to see if it can be fixed somehow.  I believe this is why the engineers came back with a completely new slide for the Gen 2.

Welcome Dan!  How long have you had your R51 and have you done any modifications to it- new pistol grips, new sights, CT laser, upgraded trigger, threaded barrel, any smithing?

I just picked up a pre-recall Gen 1 pretty cheap.  Hoping it will be a collector's item some day.  It has been interesting comparing the new with the old.  The Gen 2 slide action is so much smoother than the Gen 1.  I updated the differences earlier in this thread.

@hkp7fan Welcome to the forum!  There is not much new traffic but the forum has a wealth of information to search from.  So out of your three R51's did you pick up a two-tone smoke model?

I used to regularly check for updates on DangerCo's site but gave up after a while.  Can't wait for the new triggers!

That is a pretty informative response from the National Scouting Museum.  I laugh to myself when I think about how Remington would have answered a simple question like that.

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.

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.

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