Remington R51 Pistol -Re-engineered from the ground up and thoroughly tested to deliver ultimate reliability, the perfected R51
When the Remington R51 was re-released I was excited. An American company producing a pistol with a different action than the standard browning locking action. Call me a gun nerd, but that sort of stuff excites me.

Problem after problem showed up in YouTube videos. It seemed every YouTuber had their own unique problem. The results were more than disappointing.
