Remington Announces New R-51 Pistol
Remington Announces New R-51 Pistol

Over at, Phil White was invited by Remington to the 2014 New Defense/Tactical Products Seminar and got his hands on the new Remington Model 51 pistol in 9MM!

The R-51 uses the Pederson action but that’s where we depart from the original. As you can see from the photos the entire pistol has been streamlined and dehorned. There’s not one sharp edge anywhere on this pistol. The magazine release is ambidextrous. There is the usual internal drop safety. The primary safety is the grip safety. As you draw the pistol you can feel as well as hear the grip safety click and disengage. Once the grip safety is depressed you’re ready to fire. The R-51 has an internal hammer you would term this a single action.

A good deal of time was also spent on getting the grip circumference and angle as close to perfect as they could manage. They did a good job because the grip not only feels good but it’s a natural pointer. When you draw and bring the pistol on target the sights are pretty much lined up. The shooters hand also sits very high and much closer to the bore axis reducing felt recoil.

I'm surprised they let them make stuff like that behind the iron curtain.
Ammunition, it's the new lead bullion. Buy it cheap and stack it deep.

I have to at least dry fire it before I "pull the trigger" on one. Big Grin

If the LC9 had a shorter trigger pull, then I would have easily picked one up. For that price, it's not too bad. I'll keep this one on the back burner. I'm not fully impressed.....yet.

I wouldn't buy a new Remington ever again in my life. The ultimate anti-gun gun company.

Smith & Wesson was the devil incarnate for a short while.

Can't recall Remington's transgression.
Remington Outdoor Company has been consolidating all of it's manufacturing in it's Ilion, NY plant over the last few years. The consolidation is being funded by a loans and tax breaks given by the state of NY. The hippocracy comes in because ROC owns Marlin and Bushmaster who makes guns that are illegal to sell in the state of NY while all the time spending millions investing in the NY plant, hiring NY residents and paying taxes back to the state of NY.

ROC is owned by another company which has been actively shopping them for years with no takers. There's hope another owner might materialize and make some changes but 200 years in one place is a lot of momentum along with all that expensive infrastructure and a skilled workforce.

Then again, it's just a 2 hour ride down NY8 and yer in Susquehana county PA. Just sayin.
