Do you think anyone is going to go for this after the last debacle?

Why would anyone? Not with all the RELIABLE and WELL MADE "micro" competition out there. Remington's reputation has taken quite a beating the past few years and it seems the owners are no longer motivated to produce quality.

That trigger has a ton of pre-travel!

I wouldn't poopoo it before handling one, but my expectations aren't very high. At all.

...and speaking of Remington debacles, I don't understand why they didn't just set up to build the 51 the way it was originally designed. Build those with decent quality, and they could sell a lot of them. But they had to go and fix what weren't broke!

Fan boys. That's all I can figure. Some people just haven't accepted Big Green's fate.

Check out the price on this Ruger LCP $210. Ive heard the new Remmys are going to cost closer to a Sig 238

I've been a Remington fan my whole life but they are WAAAAAAAY late to the handgun party, and with all their problems I don't know that I would ever buy another Remington product.

It saddens me more than anything else in the gun world (other than gun control) as to the reputation Remington has these days. I've used Remington products most of my life. My shotguns are older Remington 1100 and 870 Wingmasters, one of my prized .22's is a 1965 Remington Nylon 66, my ONLY deer rifle - a 60's era .270 M700 BDL...I'd argue with anyone that there was a time when Remington made the best damn rifles and shotguns made (if anyone wanted to even take up that argument)...sadly that time has passed. But I'll still continue to use the old Remy's until I die and then they will be used by my sons and their sons. Hell even my camo cap and my camo hunting backpack are Remy marked smile

A bunch of naval gazing here guys. stir Try to cheer up. banana

I actually picked one up a couple weeks ago and have shot it and completely disassembled it. Not much to report except that it works as advertised. Mine fed Monarch brand and Hornaday XTP ammunition just fine and feeding was very smooth.




The things I like best are the excellent checkering, the traditional metal construction, the longer (from front to back grip), excellent mag release, and very good DAO trigger with double strike capability and no false reset.

They're readily available at Academy stores for around $350. I think they are a good value, especially if you're getting bored with plastic pistols.

Looks like a little Rorhbaugh R9. I could see buying one if that were the only gun I was going to own and I wanted more than just functionality, but I don't see what it offers that the LCP doesn't.

Remington bought the design and rights from Rohrbaugh, I believe. The last time they decided to design and manufacture a pistol, the whole thing went tits up for them.

Correct.

I shot it some more this morning. It's an accurate little rascal
