Guns Remington R51 to be replaced with improved R51 Recoil Staff July 25, 2014 Join the Conversation Remington Arms Company LLC has advised they are replacing the R51 subcompact pistol with an updated version. Says Remington, “Earlier this year, we launched the innovative R51 subcompact pistol to critical acclaim. During testing, numerous experts found the pistol to function flawlessly. In fact, they found it to have lower felt recoil, lower muzzle rise and better accuracy and concealability than other products in its class. However, after initial commercial sales, our loyal customers notified us that some R51 pistols had performance issues. We immediately ceased production to re-test the product. While we determined the pistols were safe, certain units did not meet Remington’s performance criteria. The performance problems resulted from complications during our transition from prototype to mass production. These problems have been identified and solutions are being implemented, with an expected production restart in October.” If you purchased one of the earlier editions of the R51 you can return it and receive a new one, along with 2 additional magazines and a custom Pelican case. To do so call Remington at (800) 243-9700. The new R51 will be of the same exceptional quality as our test pistols, which performed flawlessly.
