Another source for cheap magazines.
« on: June 06, 2018, 04:27:29 AM »
There's a fellow on Ebay selling R-51 mags for $9.99 including shipping.  He lists them as "used" but listing also says "More than 10 available".  I am not affiliated with the seller in any way but noticed the listing today.  I bought a couple.  Seller has 100% positive feedback.  I noticed the seller is in "Guntersville, Alabama", and Google says that's only 37 miles from Huntsville.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Remington-R51-9mm-Magazine/292587520181?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649


Ebay is also running a 20% off discount code today " PICKDADSGIFT " on Ebay purchases over $50, so I combined with some other stuff I had in my "watch list" and got the discount..but the code expires at 7PM pacific time today...6/6/18.

Received my R-51 magazine today.  I thought I'd ordered two, but apparently I wasn't paying attention and only ordered one.  It arrived in perfect shape, and though the seller lists them as "used", it looks like new to me.

Since I just pulled it out of the envelope, I haven't had a chance to try it yet.  I did notice a couple of subtle differences from the ones that came with my pistol.  This "new to me" magazine is marked "Remington", with the "R" on the floorplate, and I'll try to post a couple of pics to show the differences...maybe these are generation one mags?  I don't know.  The major difference is that the ones that came with my pistol have a pronounced "ridge" in the middle of the follower in the magazine, while the "new" to me one does not have that ridge. The follower is flat.  The only other difference is the floor plate on the ones that came with my pistol are thicker, while the one on the magazine I received is a bit thinner.  I do not know if any of this will affect function, but if it does, I'll certainly let everyone know.

Has anyone else seen these types of differences between R-51 magazines?

The one you just received (with flat follower and thin floor plate) is a gen 1 mag.

Thank you for confirming that.

Now I guess the next question would be....Am I going to have problems with it?   ;) ;D

I've only had experience with the two magazines that came with my generation 2 pistol, and they work flawlessly. 

I didn't have any trouble stuffing the whole 7 rounds into this new one, and the rounds fed through the pistol manually with no trouble. Guess I'll take it out to the range tomorrow and see what I've got before I order another one!

Be prepared to bend some metal. Let us know.

Seeleenickel,

I have noticed a difference in the ridge height in the follower on the new mag I got from Grab a Gun several weeks back. However, I didn't take the floor plate off and notice the plate thickness. I just looked at the spring. But like yours, mine functions flawlessly bone stock with no mods. So, for right now, I have two mags that came with the gun, (both had to be modded), then I got 2 freebies from Remington (had to mod them), then two more from Grab a Gun (both of which function fine out of the box). Grand total, 6 mags and only 2 didn't need anything. Just take it to the range and see what happens. If it manual cycles rounds with no hitches, you should be fine! Happy shooting!
