There is a Loctite for cylindrical interfaces that may work but it takes 500 degrees to free the part once this stuff is cured.

Now that's more along the lines of what we need right there! Don't want it working out again period!

That front lip was causing me issues.  I bent it forward a bit, and suddenly wolf was reliable.....although it might have been keyholing.  It was still decently accurate.

Hope you find a way to like the gun.  If nothing else, it will make good material for many more videos.

There is going to be another chapter with the R51 coming soon. It may yet redeem itself!

so far my Huntsville hasn't had a wandering pin, but round count only >500.  as an aside, if i do have the issue, i'm tempted to put it back in with red loctite and see if that keeps it in place.  and if i never have the problem, so much the better.  until more R51s get over the 1000 rd. number this issue will be hard to judge as a design oversight or an anomaly.
good luck with the repair from Remington.

Red loctite will not help. There is a Loctite for cylindrical interfaces that may work but it takes 500 degrees to free the part once this stuff is cured.

Hi Guys,
A while back I posted that I was ordering my second R-51...a grey one!  Got it from Grab-a-gun.  Finally got out to the range last Saturday.  Took the two mags from my 1st 51 and of course the two from the new one.  On the eighth round I had a fail to eject with the slide moving back into battery.  Slide was jammed and would not open it initially.  Continued to work it back and forth the quarter inch or less that it would move.  Then finally it opened.  I continued my session to the tune of 278 rounds without further issue.  Only one of my original mags had the follower legs shortened.  So bottom line I am very pleased with both of these guns after hearing many stories of failures.  I have been very fortunate.  Both are very accurate and a pleasure to shoot.  The only thing I did after bringing it home was to clean/lube and mirror polish the feed ramp, and a ton of dry firing.  Oh yes,  the first 28 rounds were factory, the remaining 250 were my reloads.  Also, I think it was Blackie who said it was designed to, I think he called it "military load".
Insert mag with slide already back.  I operated this way again without issue.  I do like this pistol for the reasons the writers in the previous posts have said.  Can't believe I'm thinking of another one for one or more of my kids or son-in-laws!
I also can't wait for Engineers trigger and about ready to order one of his barrels.

Well It finally started raining here and the ban's lifted so I got to the range last Friday with the new R1. Just like the 9mm this 45 is a sweet shooter, and very accurate. I only had two boxes of ball ammo with me and it ate every last one along with 14 rounds of American Gunner hollow-points without issue. First shots shown in the first two pictures. Third picture was several mags later. None less than 10 yards.

I am having the issue and I'm around the 1,000 round mark.  BUT, I don't know if I have a Huntsville model or not - Remington has my pistol!  I could find nothing on the box that indicates where it was made.  I THINK I remember seeing Huntsville on the slide or frame. When I get it back, I'll let y'all know.

Is this problem also happening with Huntsville guns?

I have 420 rounds through my Huntsville, and nothing yet. Of course, when I work up to the 1,000 round mark, it may happen. It sounds like an inevitable problem to me. I hope I'm wrong!
