New to me Remington 51.

Post by AMraider » Sat Feb 16, 2019 3:38 pm

I just picked this up from a gunshow. I love the way it fits in my hand. The serial # dates it 1920 Type 1 but the barrel is stamped 380 cal and the frame is stamped with Remington Trade Mark like a type 2. Did I buy a parts put together gun? It looks clean and as long as it shoots ok I'm good with it. Pretty rare to find one of theses locally around here.

AMraider :

Looks good, would need to inspect it for factory stamps / markings, it is possible it has had a diff barrel installed in it or the frame has been switched out.

If it shoots straight and functions as intended, no jamming.. and if not into it too deep, funds wise. NICE !!

Where is this located that they don't come up for sale often ??

I made a range trip the other day and even with it's Triple K magazine it functioned just fine. Very fun to shoot and easy to point. I have not seen many of theses here in Iowa. I traded a mauser for this one and couldn't be happier. More range trips with this for sure.
