As we reported on Thursday, Big Green’s now shipping the R51 Part Deux to retailers around the country. That’s after first sending out the re-worked version to buyers who’d bought the original gun and returned them after the recall was issued two years ago. Here’s their official press release:
Huntsville, AL – Remington Arms Company, LLC, (“Remington”) is proud to announce today that the R51 has returned to the market. The new enhanced Model R51 is a concealed carry pistol based on the Pedersen design, heritage and memorable features of the original Remington Model 51.
Re-engineered from the ground up and extensively tested to deliver utmost reliability, the perfected R51 gets you on target faster and more intuitively than any other subcompact on the market. Add to that its dramatically reduced felt recoil and muzzle flip, and it’s exactly what you need to perform at your best when things are at their worst.
The R51 sub compact pistol features a lightweight aluminum frame with rounded edges for comfortable conceal carry, grip safety, low bore axis for reduced recoil/muzzle flip, concealed carry trigger (light/crisp/single action), light slide racking-force for ease of manipulation, ambidextrous magazine release, locking drift adjustable sights and optimized grip angle – making it extremely easy to point and shoot.
New enhancements on the Model R51 include superior slide performance with updated internals, precision-engineered extractor, locking snag-free sights, finely-tuned recoil spring, hard chromed barrel bushing, top-end single action trigger and two semi-flush 7 + 1 round magazine.
