That's pretty damn cool.

I'll have to check that mutha out when it's fully released.

Interesting, but I suspect the grip safety will be complained about to no end like on every other gun with one. Depending on quality and shootability, it will easily compete with the other single stack 9s out there.

I like it! The one thing I do not like is the capacity. 8 rounds in 9mm? Seriously? I know it's supposed to be a CCW, but in an age where we have compact 9mm's carrying 10 rounds (Kel-Tec, Glock, etc etc), I kind of expected a little more here.

Other than that, it's a nice looking gun.

To say I'm shocked would be an understatement. It will interesting to see how this plays out. One thing is for sure in the gun industry and that is capitalism is alive & well. Build what people want (or think they want) and they will throw money at you.

I love the original mod 51 and gotta say this new one has me intrigued.

It's close to the size of the Shield and XDS which are two of it's competitors that have the same flush fit 7rd. magazine capacity.

If it really has a straight back 1911 SA type trigger (in feel). It is going to be popular as long as it is reliable.

Kind of like a hk squeeze cocker but with a grip safety instead.

Hopefully, they offer the gun in a full size configuration; providing, of course, that it's successful. I wouldn't mind seeing a small rail on the front, with maybe a 4.5" barrel, and a 15-round capacity. But that's just me. I imagine it could be possible, while still keeping the weight in acceptable limits, as well as the price down.

This is definitely something interesting. I can't wait to see SHOT show reports on it.

Performance and reliability of the mechanical design is reported to be very good. The Remington M51 was one of the three "insurance" guns carried by General Patton. What I find interesting, if it weren't for a confluence of events, we might all be admiring our Model 53 (.45 version), instead of the beloved 1911's. Early testing gave the .45 prototype better reliability ratings than the 1911.

I'm definitely going to give the new gun a look, when one becomes available locally. At first glance, the designers could have reserved that slide swoosh for running shoes and dropped the frame serrations. The original appearance had an elegance that only required a subtle touch to update. (pics from online sources)

That is a good looking pistol! With a street price of $350 I might have to buy one

Looks pretty neat. It is a little larger in all dimensions than a Kahr PM9.

The back of that R-51 looks similar to a Vektor CP1.

Nice. I like Remington long guns and that looks close to perfect for a CCW gun. I'll be checking it out.

Looks to be almost the exact size of my Shield. Although I'm not a big fan of grip safeties I would be willing to try one of these if for no other reason than it's uniqueness. I just hope it's executed well.

With a quality barrel solidly mounted like that and a 1911ish trigger it should be plenty accurate and easy to shoot well.

Definitely more excited about this than the G42.


Very little muzzle rise in that video.

Different trigger.

Pederson was a gifted designer. His rifle was in direct competition with Garand after WWI. Google will reveal a lot of unique designs and ideas.

Looks like the gun Batman would carry if Batman were to carry a gun.

I'm betting street price will be more like $299 after the newness wears off---I'll have to reserve judgment on whether I like it or not till after I actually fondle one.

I am going to consider this. I like the lack of any manual safety and a SA trigger pull can definitely be cool as long as it is not too light.

The rounded profile will help with pocket carry also.

It's hard to say for sure without actually shooting one but it seems like you would get all the advantages of the HK P7 without the weight and without the heat buildup.

I always wished for an aluminum or polymer framed P7.
