I got an email from Remington. They are having a sale on gun parts and holsters at 25% off.
I would provide the link but I am at work and their "censors" won't let me access the site to get the address...but I can get on here...Haha.  ;D

Go figure  8)

I love censorship!  ::) Thanks for the heads up. I may get another magazine.

exactly what mine were - pinched in the front of the lips, causes the bullet to pivot and nosedive.  Almost like someone read the specification backwards.

Good work on the pics.

The R51 appeared in the catalog during the recall too, but was never produced during the year the catalogue covered.

Here's what I got on mine. One mag has been problematic, causing the last live round stovepipe issue. The other has never given me any trouble.

Two different operations...
Vise was used to slightly increase the width of the mag body.
Pliers used to adjust front of feed lips out until they are parallel... Joe

*Edited to add pics*
Bench vice is not a precision tool  :) so your experience may vary... Protect mag body. I used aluminum in jaws.
Pressure from vice should cause sides to bulge out. Measure several places across body and adjust as required.

Used tooth of pliers to hook lip and leverage out... About .005-.010 per side as required.

Remington is going through chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings right now. They will continue production of all guns from what I understand. They released their 2018 catalog and the R51 is prominently featured, even the Smoke frame version is highlighted. I think the R51 will be with us for the foreseeable future. Well, at least for the next year or so. But I don't think anyone can guarantee that right now.
