Summary: The description, specs, photos, pricing and user ratings for the Remington R51 pistol.
The Remington R51 semiauto pistol is built on an aluminum alloy frame and chambered in 9mm. Remington says it’s a modern take on its Model 51 pistol, which was designed in 1915 by John Pedersen.
Other features include:
- A hammer-fired Pedersen action with a locked breech;
- smooth, rounded edges to ease drawing the gun from concealment;
- a steel slide with a matte-black finish and rear serrations;
- a nitride finish on the frame;
- a positive grip safety (i.e., it clicks when you engage it);
- interchangeable grips to accomadate varying hand sizes;
- two flush, seven round magazines;
- 25 LPI checkering on the front strap;
- an undercut trigger guard to allow a high handhold;
- an ambidextrous magazine release;
- a long but relatively light trigger pull (reportedly around 6 lbs.);
- drift-adjustable sights front and rear; and
- a lowered and flared ejection port.
Remington says the pistol can handle 9mm +P ammunition. You can get it with a Crimson Trace laser sight, and a threaded barrel.
The company says the R51 will be available in the first quarter of 2014.
