R51 General Discussion / Re: Visual differences between 1st & 2nd Gen?
« Last post by sebvox on April 06, 2020, 03:17:08 PM »

If you look at the R51 at the top of the forum page with the silencer on it, it is a Gen1. You can tell by the placement of the R51 logo. Gen2s have it closer to the ejection port. Other than that, there are really no external differences that can be noticed. However, all the new Gen2s are made in Huntsville, AL instead of Charlotte, NC. The early Gen2s utilized Charlotte frames. I started a thread a long time ago trying to determine by serial numbers when Gen2 production started. Problem is, there is really no definite point that can be determined by serial numbers when they started making them as they took usable Gen 1 frames and rebuilt Gen 2 pistols around them when they first started back.

The gun at the top of the forum page appears to be a pre-production prototype as it does not have the QR code on it.  It is similar to the ones brought out at the 2014 SHOT Show.  The pistols with the R51 near the serrations of the slide probably never made it to the consumer.  I have also noticed that early prototypes have a solid body trigger and silver torx screws on the grips.  They also appear to be smaller than T10.

Yes bought one of those for a spare at that price a while back. Some others here did also.
put one on my black gun a year or so ago. Got a Smokie but don't want to put a laser on it.

Never noticed it.  Mine is 2.5 on a Huntsville model. 
Hopefully someone will be able to shed light. 

R51 General Discussion / Back Strap Safety
« Last post by sebvox on April 05, 2020, 09:45:27 AM »
I was inspecting my pistol and noticed that there are the numbers "2.2" stamped on the inside bottom of the back strap safety.  See the attached photo.  Does everyone else have these same numbers?  Does anyone know what it means?  Just curious.

Crimson Trace lasers for the R51 are currently $29.99 on CDNNsports

Smoke color, Huntsville marked H025XXXR51.  Remington says June of 2018.

You are correct.  My statement says "Gen 2's were refurbished... in Huntsville, AL".  So the leftover Charlotte parts were sent to Huntsville for Gen 2 assembly. 
R51 General Discussion / Returned

After 8 months Remington sent my pistol back with an extra magazine.  They had to cut the slide off because breech block was hung up in it.  Wished I had asked for the old parts to be sent back.  I'm still not happy about how the breech block is working on the aluminum frame but we will see how it goes. Works well, occasional second round hangs up in magazine forward indent.
General Discussion / Gun sales

Well the NRA is stating that there were 2 1/2 million gun sales in March 2020 which is an all time record. Gun stores report many sales are first time buyers. I wonder how many of the remaining inventory of R-51s sold?
