Clearance starting at:
An innovative and functional, all metal, conceal and carry pistol packed with years of Remington know-how, the R51 Sub-Compact Pistol makes a great choice for concealed carry. Based on the proven Model 51 design, this small pistol features the delayed blowback or "hesitation-locked" action originally developed by John Pedersen for the Model 51. This unique action reduces recoil and makes the gun safe for use with +P ammunition. The R51's optimized grip angle and low bore axis further reduce the recoil you feel and reduces muzzle lift for more accurate follow-up shots. Compact, but durable, this gun combines a slim aluminum alloy frame with thin polymer grip panels with a stainless steel slide and 3.4" barrel for a solid feel in your hands. This easy-shooting sub-compact also features a flared and lowered ejection port for better case ejection, ambidextrous magazine release, positive grip safety, and consistent CCW trigger system. Comes with 2 flush 7+1 magazines.

My first experience with the R51 was terrible. I fired 20 rounds and 4 would not eject properly. I field stripped it, lubed the slide and have not had a problem since. Low recoil and accurate!

I was skeptical about this pistol once I had it ordered because a slew of videos online said this pistol was a flop. Well after getting it home I test fired it. I fired regular rounds of 115 grain 9mm, and some +P rounds and this pistol is amazing! The recoil is practically non existent. It kicks less than a .380! I now carry this as my conceal carry weapon. I have shot it several times since first firing it, it performs without error. I have had vast experience with many different pistol platforms. This is by far the best I've had so far.

My R51 was sent back to Remington on 3/20/14, Three days after I purchased it. Only fired three (3) rounds thru it. Slide kept locking back after each shot. Got a Repair number from Remington after calling for three weeks. Then every time I called Customer Service said they had no information on my pistol. Finally I got someone to tell me it was "on the Bench" When asked what that meant he stated that it was on a Gunsmiths work bench, but he did not know how many other items were ahead of my repair. after a number of e-mails to Remington Customer Service and demanding either a repair status or a refund they informed me that there was a Breach Block Problem with the R51 and that none were being repaired or manufactured until the designers figured out the Problem. Requested a Refund, Faxed all the information required by Remington on 06/08/14.... Checked on 06/09/14 that they received same, which they confirmed. Told I would get check in about a week, Still Waiting...

This gun does not work. Think of an issue you may encounter with a handgun. This pistol does it all. FTF, FTE, stovepipe. Mag gets stuck. Slide is very difficult to rack. But do not fear. This gun is backed by Remington...what a joke! I called on April 30th for repair and return instructions. The clerk said do not send back until we send you a return package. SIX weeks later, after four phone calls, I received a white envelope to ship the gun back. Really?! Today is June 19th. They cannot tell me when or if the gun is being repaired. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PISTOL TO ANYONE!!!!
