Since the Remington R51 hit the market I have heard only negative or bad reviews on it. However I have never held or even seen the R51 up close. Not one of the gun nuts ( people ) I know have not had any first hand experience with the R51 9mm.
Has anyone here have any first hand knowledge on the R51??????? At $399.99 for the R51 it sounds like a good deal for a 9mm pistol but not for a metal paper weight.

:confused:

I saw one at a local sporting goods store and asked to look at it. Neither the sales clerk or I could get the slide back.

I was later told they sent it back to Remington.

I have not seen one since and like you have read all the negative press and have lost interest in one.

About 2 months ago I was talking to a guy who had one and he could only say good things about it, he had no problems with the R51. He even let me shoot a couple rounds. It was easy to aim and had a nice trigger.

I am still planning on getting myself the BT9cc sometime soon.

I fondled one at Academy Sports last week. Interesting firearm. The recoil spring encircles the barrel. Easy to rack the slide. Not sure that I like the grip safety. It is different for sure.

I'd wait a few more months for them to "fine tune" it into it's best version. Then if the gun is still having a few things ya don't like or bad reviews then it's just not the best firearm
Even glock releases a few pistols that suck at first then they modify them to perfection.

Well I still have my heart set on a BT9CC so it would take a lot to change my mind. My Bersa Thunder 380, Bersa Thunder 380CC and Bersa Thunder 22LR have really spoiled me. I have rented other 380's at my local range and none really impressed me.

Perfection? That's their claim anyway.....Just got my latest issue of Guns in the mail yesterday. The R51 is featured on the cover.
