I handled one last night. I was going to buy one before that. You would think Remington would have introduced a pistol that was a bit more polished. I was really put off. The extremely gritty, cheap trigger and the loud "clicky" grip safety were bad enough, but the fact that it feels like there's coarse sand paper between the slide and frame was the deal breaker for me. Even if it cost a little more, I think Remington should have put a little more work into this. The gun feels very unfinished and rushed. The original 51 from 100+ years ago was a very well built pistol. This gun is an insult to the name, in my opinion. What a piece of junk. To think some people actually spent over $700 for the first couple on Gunbroker makes me cringe.
