R51

Post by Dave »

What's the news on the new R51? Last I heard Remington recalled them. Has anyone heard anything about restarting production? Or have they just scraped the whole idea?

I returned my R51 last October in the recall. They were supposed to send me one of the new series in a few months. I called in late January to find out what was going on. They said production was being shifted to Arkansas and it would be April-June for production guns to be available. The offered a 1911R1 in place of the R51, but I opted to wait since I already have a 1911R1.

Here is what Remington replied when I inquired September 8th.

We appreciate your patience as we continue our efforts to re-launch the R51. Currently we don’t have a timeframe for the re-introduction but our Huntsville R&D center is working to have it back on the market as soon as possible.



Thank you,

Remington Consumer Service
