Gunblastdotcom: Look for a full review on the new Remington R51 later, after I can get one
in here to Gunblast.com World Headquarters for a few days. Shooting several
of these at Gunsite was a lot of fun, but there was no means to do any
meaningful accuracy testing while i was there.
IamBaal: I need your help and anybody can please answer my question. There is a new
pistol that is supposedly coming out and I seen the video on YT I just do
not remember the name. It is coming out in 9mm and the show comparisons
between their pistol and other pistols showing the muzzle rise after
shooting. It is coming out in polymer and steel this year I believe? It is
supposed to be better than Glock specifically and I wanted to buy it.
fattywithafirearm: I have an original Remington model 51 made in 1919. I want this new gun so
Sam Man: I hate to be the oddball but man do I think that gun is ugly. Looks like it
shoots well, but ugly.
Andrew Moursund: Remington is looking to innovate the 9MM market by looking backward for
I'm still mad at the Freedom Group for what they did to AAC's founder, but
this still has me pretty excited.
Tactical Tightwad: Like the new opening, Jeff!
jlen82: Jeff size wise is this Similar to an LC9?
paininthe10: Who does your music? You have the best intro and end of video music of all
the channels I sub too. Love the music and the videos, keep up the great
cole mickelson: What the hell Remington? Who really thinks that thing is going to sell.
WhiskeyRiverRifleman: grip safety's are crap.
Ryan Peck: No price set yet?
Calvin Ledford: This is ridiculous! The September issue of Guns has a cover story on the
R51! The guns seem to have quietly been pulled from the market (try to
find one on gun broker), it has been more than 100 days since the first
guns started going back and no fix or even update from Remington. At this
point the issues with the R51 are well known. I find it completely
irresponsible for gun mags to continue to provide positive reviews based on
"eval guns" when the production version has so many issues.
Jake Lonergan: Almost certainly the ugliest gun on the market. What problem did they think
they were solving?
pete5668: I know it has a grip safety, but does it have a thumb safety too? I didn't
see the left side of the gun at all in the vid.
Ken Rhodes: Where is it made?
rcbif101: Does the slide ride on aluminum or steel rails?
guns4funcajanajustin: Good stuff Jeff!
Scott Smith: That was almost a complete lie from the remington guy, these are terrible
to shoot, hard on the web of your hand, and are fairly unreliable. Add to
that they are stupid difficult to re-assemble properly, and you have a very
expensive mistake. And yes, I have shot them, no I don't hate remington,
but this gun is pretty bad. There are things they could do to fix it, but
if they didn't during testing I doubt they would now with it being so new.
Trigger Happy Guns: Here's hoping Remington is nothing like Ruger in the roll out of their new
pistols. If Ruger says mid-February, they mean for only <1% of their
dealers and the rest get them in 9-18 months.
NewJerseyMilitia: Is it accurate and up to what distance?
oneeyedpatriot: That is a fine looking gun! Thanks for yet another fine review!
suburban sentinel: Sounds like a tough sell. Remy's QC has gone downhill (thank you Freedom
Group) so they will have to prove themselves in a market crowded with
BEN TWOONEZERO: Do you think they will do a R53.
Guns & Gears: Very interesting gun, not many Remington pistols out there.
72darkf: HNY, Jeff
TruckingShooter: Very pretty looking, it's nice to have something old yet new again that
isn't another piece of fantastic plastic... I like it.
Imur Huckleberry: It seems as though 2014 will be an great year for a lot of these new
handgun releases- the glock 42, rem's r51 and several other's... man, I
have to start saving some $$ for all these new toy's!
E.W.E. Hughes Jr: I like it. Remington seems to be differentiating themselves from some of
the other firearms manufacturers with this pistol. I like the full-length
grip and the size. We have plenty of micro-9mm pistols on the market; it's
nice that single-stack 9mm for those that may want to take a path less
iknowmy3table: I just looked into how the action worked, I'm very impressed, not only does
it have a low bore axis but it has a a fixed barrel, that's right a good
9mm pistol with a fixed barrel. using the same action in a larger frame gun
you could add as big of a muzzle brake or any muzzle accessory without
affecting the reliability it could be the ultimate competition pistol
Jay Jack: Oh that thing looks so sexy!
Dave Marotto: It's just my opinion. Calm down.
kefefs: Well this was unexpected. I might have to break my "no Cerberus" rule for
Sic Semper Gumby: Came for the overview, stayed for the music
WaltD1911: Looks like a cool gun Jeff and I'll wait for your review. Great channel and
enjoy your vids! Happy New Year to all!
SGT SAM: Way cool gun. Great look!
Calvin Ledford: Hard to believe another week has come and gone and still nothing from
Remington - a fix or even an update. Rumor had it that there would be
resolution sometime in June. Being that it is already the 19th, if they
announced something today, I think it would be a stretch to think that all
people with RMA guns would for certain have theirs back by the end of the
month when considering business days, shipping time etc. Given other
rumors as to plants being closed and manufacturing relocated to AL, I can
see this stretching out even longer. More concerning, I have extremely low
confidence that when considering a large scale manufacturing move, new
equipment, new staff, new plant etc. that this is even truly going even
going to get resolved this go around. Further, most of the rumors about
fixes seem to have related to replacing slides, redesigned breach blocks
and internal tweaks, I have yet to hear about barrels being replaced to
address chamber issues.
Dave Marotto: I won't buy it. Looks cheap and ugly.
jlen82: Great price too! I may have to purchase one
Matt Kenney: Nice 2 Have You Here In AZ...Bit Chilly Up There This Time Of Year...
Ken ibn Anak: Hmm, how is the size of it compared to the original 380 variant? Will a
holster for the new one fit the older ones? Is there any parts
Michael Smith: Looks like a good little piece,too bad it can't be had in .40 S&W
73Corbin: looks a little big for a 7+1 9mm.. if i am going to carry something that
large it will be a glock 19/23
Larry Ransom: Who is performing the background music (Battle Cry of Freedom). I sure
hopes it's the Southern Version of that song!
Daniel Moore: it looks like the bastard son of a xds and a walther
Moonfood78: Will they make night sights???
Michael McGee: Notice they have no MSRP yet, any clue as to ballpark cost Jeff? Mike
Christopher Meyerhofer: You said to go to www.crimsontrace.com to find the laser grips. I couldn't
find it. They don't have it under their "New to 2014" section.
lsw w: What are the overall dimensions and weight?
kenneth NELSON: I'm thinking this might be a perfect gun for the wife.
TrinityGadgetry: I didn't see an R51 being shot.
And why is Gunsites' trademark a Reichsadler?
