R51 General Discussion / New Member- First Impressions
« Last post by President Donald J. Trump on February 25, 2020, 03:45:47 PM »
    I just picked up my R-51.  First impressions: Very cool gun!  Love the lines and curves, fascinating action, good ergonomics, crisp trigger break. 
    Not sure why people seem to have so much trouble with field stripping the pistol. I found it quite simple(thirty seconds or less if you know how to properly disassemble.) Reassembly is easy if you make sure the spring is lined up with the hole in the front of the slide.  It is not as easy most other semi-autos of the day but it is not bad at all.
    The slide rack was gritty.  Upon disassembly I noticed that there were metal shavings in the action and some of the machined surfaces were rough, including the Pederson block.  I pulled out the Dremel tool, a buffing wheel, and some various grit, very fine compounds and went to polishing the surfaces of the pistols action, slide rails, bolt, barrel, and bushing.  I am reluctant to disassemble the frame and trigger components because of the serrated pins that are in the aluminum frame. I don't want them to become loose because of damage to the aluminum holes. It would have been nice to have the pins held in by clips but there is no reason to take it apart because I like the trigger and the grip safety as is.
     I lubricated all moving components in the slide very well while I break it in to prevent galling but I will use less oil in future cleanings. The slide feels very slick and easy now.  The trigger gets better and better as I dry fire. The backstrap safety felt cheap at first but no longer does after many manipulations.
      I have great expectations for this interesting little pistol.  Now that it has been worked over it is ready for the range.  I will report back and brief you on my first shooting impressions.
Thanks for the info on Crapier Then  Hurt. I didn't realize they did that.

This nice little pistol has enough things going on
with it, it certainly doesn't need to be rechambered
for anything. There's plenty of actual, originally
chambered guns out there. It's good that people
are thinking outside the box, I guess. IMHO.

Many of suspect the mags cause most of the feed problems with the R51.
It always seemed to me the single V groove down each side of the mag causes the rounds to bind.
If you look down the top of a loaded mag you'll see the individual rounds randomly twist either way until they bind against the V grooves.
A second groove or single flat section would keep the rounds aligned and feed easier... Joe

One other observation......the r51 has problems feeding.  Could this be because we're basically using a 45acp mag for 9mm?  The rm380 gets a nice spacer in the back of the mag to fit the 380.  Why doesn't the r51 get this?

Has anybody tried rechambering an r51 for 38super or 9x23.  I noticed the mags were long enough to accommodate the longer rounds.  It would only be a matter of reaming the chamber, and bending the top of the mag out.....for 9x23 anyway.  38 super has the wider rim.

The r51 mags also look like they accommodate wider rounds as well.  Long enough for 10mm.  Wide enough for 45acp.

 I love 2ndA and collect firearms. Here to support Remington in this seemingly difficult venture. I'd like to learn more about R51 that is currently being shipped from Bud's. I saw that I could get the R51 and pick the serial # from Bud's for $210, a Crossbreed Seconds Supertuck crimson trace holster for $40, and the Crimsontrace attachment for $37... couldn't help myself. :)  I love strange and interesting firearm designs and I am excited to try out the new pistol despite all of the negative press. I also don't mind if I have to do a little smithing to get her running smoothly. Let me know if any of you guys make aftermarket grips, triggers, etc as I may might be interested. Thanks for having me!
