Gerry, just tried out the T&E sample you sent me. All I can say is: NICE  ;D

I wasn't expecting it to make a big difference, BUT IT DOES. I'll be doing a write up this week, and I'll post it here with pics.

Good. Job.

I have made 5 more sets of tools for the standard barrel pistol, and they are available for purchase.  PM me if you would like a set.  Thanks.

This is far and away the best accessory for the R51 ever!
Quickest field strip and reassembly Ive ever done.

The quality of Gerry's disassembly tool is amazing. His instructions are complete, and he has been very helpful with advise. Don't hesitate to buy his "invention". Remington should make it standard issue with the R51, especially for those of us with small, older hands.

The disassembly tools are a must have for all R-51 owners!  This is particularly true if you opt to go with a threaded barrel.

Or, you might enjoy wasting time, pinched fingers, gnarled fingernails, bruised palms and fingers, and the sound of reverberating profanity in your pistol disassembly and cleaning area.

Gerry sent me a set for T&E, and I wanted to share my review with the group.

Bottom-line up-front: I love this tool. It's well made, makes this pistol MUCH easier to dis/assemble, and saves your thumb from the feed ramp.

This is for the threaded-barrel version of the tool set that Gerry makes. It's a two-piece set, milled and turned out of 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum and polished tool-steel pins. The machining is quite well done, and every edge is deburred.


To use it, lock the pistol slide back with the slide lock, and thread the round piece onto the barrel until it's flush with the muzzle. I gave Gerry the added barrel length, and it's spot on.



Release the slide catch, and ease the slide forward until it's against the round spacer. You'll see the little humped key of the catch in the window of the slide. You can pop that out to remove the slide.



The square thumb pusher slips over the feed ramp, then fits nice and tightly onto the barrel. It will rotate down, and hold on pretty well.



SO MUCH EASIER to push the barrel forward, and keep control of it as you rotate it up to get the bushing to catch on the slide. Unthread the round spacer from the barrel, and drop out the breechblock.



The pusher helps to pull the barrel out from the slide. This is a little tricker for the longer threaded barrel, but having the pusher to wiggle with helped a lot. There's a video out there of one of the Remington company guys slipping it apart like a 1911, but I'm far from that level of mastery. This made a big difference, and produces less wear on the threads.



After cleaning or whatever, everything goes back in reverse order. I was able to slip my barrel back into the barrel bushing, which was still being held in the slide by the spring. Again, the pusher is VERY handy for getting the barrel back in. I know a lot of older guys can struggle with fine motor tasks; I can't help but thinking this is a must-have accessibility tool for anyone with lessened hand strength or dexterity.

All in all, this was a great idea, and I'm really happy Gerry is helping out the R51 community with his tools. I would highly recommend them, and just learned to like my R51 a little more ;D

Thanks for the write-up.  One thing is a little confusing, "This is for the threaded-barrel Gerry makes......"  Just to be clear, I do not make threaded barrels.  I made this particular tool to fit the barrels you make, and am happy to supply a tool to those who buy your threaded barrels to ease the frustration of field stripping the R51.  Again, thanks for the write-up; just wanted to be clear.  ;)

Opp, sorry, was supposed to be "This is for the threaded-barrel version Gerry makes".

I'll fix that in the review...
