The Remington Arms Company announced a new 1911-style pistol chambered in 10mm. The new R1 10mm Hunter Long Slide is a single action handgun designed for accuracy and power.
It seems that the R51 will hang around Remington’s neck, much like the albatross around the Ancient Mariner’s. Whether the gun community will shrieve Remington of this perceived sin remains to be seen. The latest word from the customer service department at Remington is: Currently we don’t have a timeframe for the re-introduction [of the R51 […]
(Ed. note: For the latest information on the R51, read my most recent update here.) I spoke with a Remington representative at the 2015 NRA show about the status of the R51 pistol. There has been a wide range of speculation about the gun ever since it was recalled in 2014. At that time, fixed […]
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.

Had enough of the zombies? Not yet, I guess, considering The Walking Dead seems to be one of the most popular shows on TV. Fortunately, Remington introduced the Versa Max Zombie shotgun to help quench the thirst for zombie-related gun gear. The Versa Max is Remington’s newest autoloading shotgun, and in the past couple of […]
In 2012, Magpul announced a line of shotgun accessories, and one year later Remington announced an 870 Express Tactical shotgun with those fixtures as standard features. The new Remington 870 uses a Magnum SGA buttstock and a MOR fore-end. The Remington 870 shotgun is extremely popular for self-defense and police work. I’d venture to say […]
Remington HyperSonic rifle ammunition promises to “supercharge” centerfire rifle cartridges and deliver up to 200 fps more velocity from standard pressure loads. Remington states the rounds will deliver “laser-flat trajectories” and more energy on target for better performance. The nine new loads cover seven of the most popular hunting cartridges, both short and long action […]
2013…2014…2015… What’s old is new again. Remington will show the new Golden Saber Black Belt ammunition at the 2015 SHOT Show. If you think you’ve heard of this information before, you would be correct. They also announced the ammo at the 2014 show…and at the 2013 show. I don’t think this ammo ever made it […]
