I like it. If it's as reliable as they say I'd definitely buy one.

Find me a gun rag that wouldn't give a glowing review of even the biggest piece of $#!+ that fell apart in their hands...

I take these press releases with a grain of salt. Only a few years of real world testing and use will give me the information I need to justify the purchase of any completely new product like this.

I don't understand the action. Can anybody point me to one of those animated videos showing how it works?

Hmmm. OK. The ejection looks kind of normal I guess. Not too radical anyway.

The writeups make them seem totally weird.

they should of rebranded the yugo 9mm tok as a remington and sold thousands for the same price as this piece of modern art.

I bought an original Remington Model 51 and traded it. Kicking myself now, but I will probably buy one of the new ones if a site like TTAG gives it a good reliability report.

So the R51 has been on the market for a few months now...its looking like Remington might have another recall on their hands.







Of course there are plenty of glowing gun rag reviews, but in the quick search I did on the R51, it revealed quite a few more problem videos than praise.

I expected a stinker with this one, hoped it would not be. That company could screw up making a hammer.

I don't like the sculptured swept line on the side of the slide...would rather it was smooth from front to back with the serrations cut into the rear for grabbing the slide.  Other than that, I think its a pretty neat design...hope they get their problems corrected.

Agreed.  I'm all for more competition in the compact 9mm market but this ain't it.

MAC is one of my go-to reviewers for just this reason.  Hell part of me despises Nutnfancy but I'd love to see him do a review on this as of the current production...that would be a hoot

I can't stand nutnfancy but Tim (Mac) always has an honest review. He writes for shooting times ( think that's right) now and is supposed to start with shotgun news soon, the editor there is a friend of his and is in some videos he does.
