That's good to hear. Is your R-51 the $215 one from Buds?
Are the grip panels held with removable screws or rivets?

I picked up one from buds last week, its from AL, and has screws.

Must be a crap-shoot ordering from buds what one you get.

Have you found any CNC plans for the grips?

No have not looked. Figured I'd use the existing plastic plates as a pattern. That's what I did for my Ruger SP101. These in the picture are made from cedar wood.

Looks good!

I bought one of those starter wood CNC machines, and will try to make a set of checkered R-51 grips...... since big green stopped selling 51 accessories.   >:(
