Remington announced today that they’re shipping the “re-engineered from the ground up” R51 to dealers. They began shipping the redesigned guns three to four weeks ago to buyers who’d returned their pistols to Big Green when the original model was recalled two years ago.
So what’s changed? Remington’s re-worked the ejector, the extractor, and disconnector. They’ve also changed the finish on the action spring bushing along with other more minor tweaks.
They tell us that this time the design has been tested, re-tested, and tested again. Those are some of the new R51s above that I saw in production when I was in Huntsville a few months ago.
MSRP for the single stack 7+1 concealed carry gun: $448. We have one on the way now. Look for a complete review of the R51 redux soon.
