Recoil is soft , more like a 1911-9MM . I used some 124gr +P ammo to test it. Took it part to learn about it and fount it had been clean and the floating bolt was well lubed the rails not so much . Its well lubed now. I also found it close enough to a cw9 kahr in size it fits my other holster I have well enough for now. Need to get it to the range for a work out but plased right now.

Price was $357.28 LGS

Photo is my cw9 with the r51

Can you take a picture of the Kahr on top of the R51? I would like to see their profiles on top of the other.

Just got off the phone with Remington they still had no news. I ask when they would offer a refund he immediately said he could refund now. Emailed a copy of my receipt.

The redesigned Remington 51 is supposed to be available in October. Anyone that bought one can return it for a new pistol and some free extras for the trouble.

When/if they get the bugs worked out of the R51, it looks like it would make a very handy, very shootable CC weapon.

I was interested in it when I 1st saw it online, then after handling at an outdoor show in Jan., I took it off of my must-have list, it did not feel right in my hand. It felt like it would end up "biting" into the web of my hand with several mags shot during a range trip.

Like before, I will wait until others have tried it and reviewed it before getting one.

The Pedersen design is actually not bad, but Remington screwed this one up big time.
