GONRA's shiny new R51 is really pleasant to shoot with  Winchester 9mm Luger 115 gn. FMJ  Q4172 Factory ammo.                                               MT's land around my feet.     Nice square notch easy to pickup sights!
Disassembly is "interesting".  Gotta verk on that....                                         79 year olde Finger Dexterity doesn't help....
Purchased this asa DELAYED BLOWBACK to add to my "Mechanism Collection".                                                                                                          Only other "delayed blowbacks" on hand are 2 .380 ACP Remington M51's from looong ago.                                                                                              These are beautiful firearms - shoot great!
Currently plan to only shoot Winchester 115 gn, FMJ factory ammo.                                                                                                        Scared to shoot my Prize Winning Handloads and void the warranty.
Am anxious to see what others think as tyme goes on.
R51's are gonna be a Big Success as loong as one keeps 'em CLEAN.                                                                                                     Can't get an unburned powder ball in those closely fitted parts! ..

GONRA, I get what you are saying about old fingers, Mine are 81 years young. But I still carry a 1911 as my main weapon. My R51 if it goes bang every time, will be my pocket gun.
BTW, have you tried the new Ruger ARX polycase ammo?

I only dry fire my 1911s. Just a hold over from the military. I have enough 9MM around
to go  out to the range and use it up. I picked up some of the new Winchester USA forged
9MM with steel casings and my LC9s loves it. Also my RIA 9MM. I intend to try it in my R51 when I pick it up.
I don't reload, so saving casings is no problem.

berettaprofessor,
Have you heard of any body trying the Ruger ARX Polycase ammo? Just curious, I use it in my
other carry weapons.
Thank you for your time.

I just bought my R51, have not picked it up yet from Champion Firearms in College Station,
Texas.
I read the firearm blog and I really wonder if that guy has an agenda. I have seen other reviews
and the R51 ran great.
