Once you get the hang of disassembly and reassembly, itís easy and reliable.

Thanks guys. I actually feel comfortable enough th carry it again. It wonít shoot 9 mm rat shot, without jamming, but most semiautomatics wont, so I am happy

Foxhunter - glad you kept the R51 and took the time to fix the issues.  Scouts Owner is correct that the slide release was the culprit.  When reassembling, the catch must be under the little spring or it will lock back on every cycle.  Here is a video that shows the issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwUyxp0kNQg

There is a very small spring on the left hand of the slide that causes this problem. On reassembly it must be properly engaged to prevent  locking open. Several youtube vids on the subject..
Its the first thing I check after disassembly. .
R51 General Discussion / Locking back
« Last post by Foxhunter on January 05, 2021, 12:08:36 AM »
So when I was ready to throw my r51 in the lake, due to constant jamming due to rounds diving into the loading ramp, I found this site. I found instructions on how to trim the magazines and polished everything. I put the gun back together, but every time I fired it the slide stop would engage and lock it back. As a last resort, I disassembled and reassembled. It racked and shot perfectly. No more jamming. I am happy, but I still canít figure out what was making the slide stop engage. Anyone know what I did wrong?

General Discussion / Re: serial numbers again for R51G2 Smoke

Even though all manufacturing was moved to Huntsville in March of 2015, frames marked Charlotte were still being used up through December 2016 in Huntsville.  The first frames marked Huntsville start in January 2017.  All Smoke models are indeed made in Huntsville as they were introduced in September 2017.  Also, just because an R51 is marked Charlotte does not make it a G1.  G1s had a couple identifiers: R51 logo on the slide is in a different location and the sights do not have set screws.

I think that you are right that at the end of the production run they started using any and all extra parts to assemble guns and get them out the door.  I also think that your pistol could very well be the factory prototype model for the "Smoke" color variation.  This could explain the out of sequence serial number, blemish and used status.  Either way, it is going to be difficult to verify any information on the gun now.

No doubt at the end of production, Remingtons assembly line was probably very similar to Waltherís at the end of the War: use what parts you have left and get something functional out the door. It would be very interesting if your smoke model is indeed a factory prototype. The out of sequence serial number would suggest that as Remington might have pulled the frame from the line and set it aside for some reason. Thanks for posting!
