Received mine in mail today after a SNAFU where my R51 threaded barrel and my R51 magazines both were routed by USPSA to another town before returning.

Got it into place in bushing & slide with minimal trouble then couldn’t get the slide to move back correctly to seat the slide stop pin. One smashed finger later and she’s together. Might have to try it out tonite.

Thank you Cam for the 13.5x1.

General Discussion / Finally got it out to the range
« Last post by ferrisfan on January 22, 2019, 10:46:55 AM »
I had broken in the magazines with some loading and unloading.  Bent the tab that holds the follower back a bit and took a flat file to the tab before heading out.  Also did a disassembly and lube first.  Took pictures of everything "as found" before any rounds through it.

100 rounds of S&B 124 gr.
50 rounds of Rem UMC 115 gr.
50 rounds of Browning 115 gr.

Zero jams.  One instance of magazine dropping after first round, clearly my fault since it never happened again.

On the first magazine ever, it did not go into battery by pulling the slide back from the slide stop position and letting go.  I just used the slide release lever after that.

Shot 4 mags of 7+1 just fine.  The mag took some coaxing but it definitely worked.

No steel case ammo because it is not allowed at this particular range.

Nice outing!  I'll shoot it again this week before I try taking it apart to clean it.  The only noticeable thing is lots of scratch marks on the spring bushing.  I suppose that is normal from any manufacturing burrs on the slide?

I'll be releasing a metal trigger soon, should help out a bit. Disassembly is easy, just need to drift out a couple of pins.

Just an FYI, I'm down to our last 5. Probably will be a little while before the next run, metal anti-wobble triggers are the next item to run  8)
I'll put aside a little money to save for it.  :)

I too am very interested in a new (not wobbly) trigger. If you’re taking requests... I think the skeletonized stock trigger looks wrong on this gun. The gun has a retro look, the stock trigger looks too modern.
If the trigger functions well I would want 3 (and maybe some good installation instructions)

Thanks

If you've never taken the trigger out, no worries, it's a piece of cake. The pivot pin is drifted out left to right (facing the read of the frame), and the action bar is a short roll pin. Takes about 2 min if you're being careful.

First version will be a basic, anodized aluminum non-adjustable, pricepoint around $40.

Planning an adjustable version after that, probably around $50.
