Yes, I'm always right at the cusp! I just obtained a turret mill that will make it a MUCH easier job. Looking to start making chips on them next week, just trying to get the next batch of triggers up as folks are beating down my door for Silver and Black triggers!

Agreed scouts... My R51 has been less than reliable, but I know many have had no unusual problems... and yes the take down "difficulty" seems exaggerated.
Definitely a few drama queens out there - Joe

My R51 shoots flawlessly and I am more precise with it than any other of my pistols....I carry it. Takedown and reassembly is simple.

How to sign up - the rules / r 51 videos
« Last post by scouts owner on Today at 03:01:18 AM »
I watched several youtube reviews of the pistol yesterday. Uniformly negative with only a couple exceptions. Even the two that spoke well of the guns function felt obliged to say they could not recommend it as their "carry:"gun". Group think in action is the only explanation. The fear of losing street cred with the reviewing community keeps the gun from being favorably reviewed.
As the owner of two 51s, both second gen one Charlottesville and one Huntsville, my hands on experience has been very positive. The Charlottesville model needed a couple magazine tweaks and the Huntsville unit only needed a cleaning to perform as expected.
The mystery is that the reviewers seemed to expect flawless operation  out of the box. For a group who consider themselves to be gun authorities that is a peculiar position to take. Mastering a set of skills needed to be a credible sage includes understanding the machine and being able to make the small changes to achieve the desired results. The fact that almost all of them complained about the tear down and reassembly  highlights the mind set. If you only want to disassemble 1911's only review 1911's.
Bottom line; .1.  Reviews by the over matched will never become positive. 2. Anything new or challenging meets that criteria. 3. Over weight, bearded, rednecks in t shirts are not the best source of gun reviews.
BTW..... I am an overweight bearded redneck who is wearing a t shirt but I was smarter than the gun. Needed to get this off my chest.

I'd be interested in one of the threaded barrel sets.

I'm a relatively new R51 owner and just discovered this forum.  I'm looking forward to connecting with fellow R51 owners.

Thanks.
