Picked up the R51 gen2 for a drop over 300. Pain to field strip and haven't tried it out. Might make its way to my fishing tackle box or out in the garage.

I've been a big green R guy since I was a kid and so wanted to like these. The backstory is great but the Gen 1 disaster is hard to overcome. How is the trigger? Hope you have good luck with it and report back after some shooting.

Weren't the RP9s selling for really cheap with a rebate a while ago?

It seems okay. I'll let you know how it works as soon as i get time to try it out. Haven't told my HK's about her yet.

Over $300 bucks??!! You could have got a SD9VE for $250, and they actually work.

That's the big downside I've heard about them.

$300? Taurus PT111 G2s are $199 all day long and a far better gun than that Remington experiment.

I don'tknow much about the Remington, but I will agree that the PT111G2 is a great gun, especially for the money.

Take it from someone who owns an R51. It's a decent pistol but not perfect. I had to mill the front sight to correct a low POI (2-3" low @15 yards) and also machined a new trigger to rid the gun of the ugly, Fisher-Price loose plastic one that Remington dropped the ball on. What were they thinking putting a plastic trigger on an all metal pistolconfused. Mine now has over 1000 rounds through it and it really is a nice shooter.

Please let us know how it shoots.

Then Gen 2 is supposed to have fixed the issues with the Gen 1, but the write-ups on the Gen 1 in the gun press all seemed OK...

In this regard a lot of these gun rags are much like Motor Trend. They never tested a car they didn't like.

I don't doubt it...I've yet to read a negative review...

So, either they don't print negative reviews, or all the guns they test are pretty good.

My recent experience with new guns is that they're all pretty good...but either way, I have to relegate gun reviews to the category of "entertainment"...
