I imagine that most of the gun community has heard of the Remington R51 by now. If not here’s the basics: it is a single-stack 9mm pistol based on a historic Remington pistol also called the R51. It has been updated with modern manufacturing and metallurgy, but remains very similar to the original gun.
One of the more surprising things I experienced at Media Day is going to the Remington shooting lanes to discover that the company chose to not bring the gun to the range with them. Asking about, I was not able to get a single answer on why that is. Different reps told me different things. But, all assured me the gun was in production and would be shipping soon.
Remington had several of the R51 guns on the show floor. Another writer told me he thought the trigger was gritty. The one I dry fired, however, had a nice trigger on it. I hope the production guns have the light, smooth trigger I experienced.
