I realize by posting this inquiry I am opening Pandora's Box but here goes. What are your thoughts about, other than the fact it is butt ugly, the Remington R-51 pistol?

It's the biggest subcompact I've ever seen.

I am very interested in shooting one myself. I like the fact that its a metal pistol, single action trigger, and has no sharp corners.

I will agree, its too big to be a subcompact, and it is kinda ugly.

I want to handle one first before I make a final judgment. Concept is cool though. I like the fact that it is an all metal gun.

I agree. I was just wondering what others thought about it.

Ugly, too big....
I would rather have a Makarov pistol.

I want to hold it before I condemn it. The original Remington Model 51 had the reputation of being one of the most natural pointing pistols ever made. If that holds true for the R51 a lot of other sins can be forgiven.

While the Remington R51 isn't the most attractive pistol, It is still better looking than modern FN pistols.

I want to shoot one. The low bore axis should be a plus.

Agree to disagree on this one.

I think it looks a lot like a Makarov. That doesnt change the fact that I would like to shoot it.
