Congrats on your purchase and at a good price. I have been using handloads with Berry's 100 grain bullets and Tightgroup. I have also used Winchester Whitebox with no problems. I like the Handloads better since they don't beat the gun up so much. Enjoy!
Dave, I have two functional M51’s. A Type 1; and a Type 2. love both of them and have done a lot of research and history on them. If you have a question I may be able to help you. I stripped them down and removed the barrels, springs and breach blocks to give them a thorough cleaning. In my endeavors to find these and keep them in original condition I have acquired an extra magazine, breach bolt, and firing pin. I have also talked to many longtime gunsmiths that have CNC machines and milling equipment and it is possible to have reproduction parts made; however, you really have to be in love with the M-51 because the cost is very high. The milling for a breach bolt takes between 20-25 separate milling operations because of the tolerances required. Pedersen’s technology was and is still way head of current technology. If you want to contact me I can be reached at 719-235-1104.
