Remington R51 Subcompact Pistol 2016

Remington’s R51 pistol has officially returned to the market!

The company announced in July that its new enhanced Model R51 — based on the Pedersen design, heritage and memorable features of the original Remington Model 51 — had been reengineered from the ground up.

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.

The Remington R51 is available chambered in 9mm Luger +P with an MSRP of $448. In addition, the Model R51CT features a Crimson Trace laser sight with an MSRP of $648.
