Manufacturer’s Description

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.
