Does anyone ccw a Remington R51? How does the pistol handle? Thank you for your replies.
Aren't all of these in a landfill with the E.T. Atari games by now?
JUNK JUNK JUNK......did I mention they are junk
I surely hope you don’t carry one good sir...
Another gem from freedom group
I know one person on the forum carries one. I have one for fun at the range. Mine has never failed. I think there are better options for CCW.
Exactly my thoughts on the R51...lol
That thing is junk
I really like the look of the pistol.... but everything I’ve heard has been negative. I suggest you avoid it.
I think they probably DO have it straightened out now but it will never overcome all the negativity surrounding it.
I have no faith in anything Remington does these days.
It is not a pistol for the beginning shooter. I finally got mine to work, but it took extensive break-in. It’s fun to shoot, but I don’t trust mine for concealed carry.
Might be something to buy as a collector piece someday....
I had one, never ever handled let alone owned a gun so nastily hard to disassemble/reassemble.
You need work hardened hands, lots of strength and workarounds to get it done.
Sold it to my local gunshop who used it as a door prize in some event. The "winner" of the event didn't get a winner of a gun.
Move on to better semi autos, there are lots of choices. Don
I had one, and it worked like a champ. I don't think it ever malfunctioned. I didn't shoot any worse with it that I do with anything else. It felt great in my hand. (Mine was one of the ones made after "the fix.")
But as a couple of people have said it was the worst thing I have ever tried to take apart and put back together. Not really complicated, just HARD. I guess I'm an old man with girly hands now, but man that thing was a beast. I was surprised my hands never bled. If there was a "trick" to it, I sure never figured it out in spite of reading the book over and over, and watching a half dozen video's.
I considered just using a can of Gunscrubber to clean it, and never taking it apart again, after I managed to get it back together, but some other bright, shiny thing caught my eye and I traded it back to the dealer I'd bought it from for only a small loss.
I wouldn’t own anything mfg’d by Remington in the last 10-15 years.
I sooo had high hopes for
This gun.. the look and feel are good... but if it’s unreliable... not
Just going by the reports I would sooner buy a Keltec or SCCY. And I like the R51 and really wanted it to be a success, but...
I see a lone one sitting in a shop every now and then. I wouldn’t take the gamble on it, even at the low price point.
