The R51 subcompact pistol features a lightweight aluminum frame with rounded edges for comfortable concealed carry and grip safety. The low bore axis makes for reduced recoil/muzzle flip.
Other features include a concealed carry trigger (light/crisp/single action), light slide racking-force for ease of manipulation, ambidextrous magazine release, locking drift adjustable sights and optimized grip angle – making it extremely easy to point and shoot.
New enhancements on the Model R51 include superior slide performance with updated internals, precision-engineered extractor, locking snag-free sights, finely-tuned recoil spring, hard chromed barrel bushing, top-end single action trigger and two semi-flush 7 + 1 round magazine.
