It looks like the b@stard child of the model51(referenced in that article) and a Ruger SR series pistol

Nobody ever called a Glock pretty... and this Remington is made here in the good ole' U.S.A.

Did anyone mention it's not a polymer frame?  Shocked 

I would buy one...   thumbs up

Here's more on this pistol from Jeff and Boge Quinn of Gunblast(dot)com.

I like the lower riding barrel in something more powerful than a .380 but I agree it is homely.

Looks like a jiminez crossed with something off the jetsons to me.. uglier than a box of glocks imho.

LOL, I actually like it myself and with a MSRP of $389 I might just be putting this on my short list for this year. Would really like a .40 version but I could use another 9mm.

Can't Remington just make an effort to bring the quality back on the Marlin guns rather than trying to further their foray into the handgun world with this thing. Nevertheless, if street prices approaches the $300 mark I might have to add another 9mm to the stable.

Looks great to me and I really like all steel guns. Would like a higher magazine capacity like 9 or 10 but with the slim profile I can live with it.

i like the idea, the execution is a mess though with all the wavy cutouts and design elements. i might be a fan if they kept the og lines and angles... i won't be a betta tester but in 5 or so years if they are worth a dang, i might pick one up

With the reports i have heard on remington and other freedom group companies quality issues and horrible customer service, i would be much more likely to buy a keltec.. they are far from high quality but they at least have good customer service.

A man can dream, can't he?

So what we have here is an all steel, internal hammered, single stack, single action pistol with a grip safety that looks like the illegitimate child of a PX4 and a PPK. Who is the market for this product? The traditionalists won't like the rounded edges and Star Trek type lines and the modernists won't care for the material. On the upside, Remington, with all of their issues, beat Glock to the punch on a single stack carry piece.
