Remington Announces New R-51 Pistol

During the first part of December a group of firearm writers, including myself, were invited by Remington to the 2014 New Defense/Tactical Products Seminar held at the Gunsite Academy in Paulden, Arizona. To say I was excited to go would be an understatement!

As it turns out I would have been even more excited if I had known what was in store for us. Each day we would meet in a classroom and discuss products before heading to the various ranges for a day of shooting. This particular morning a presentation was on the screen and there was a pistol I’d never seen but looked somewhat familiar. The pistol turned out to be the new Remington Model 51 pistol in 9MM! (shipping in February)

The R-51 looked familiar because this new pistol is based on the John Pederson designed original model 51. For those not familiar with the model 51 there were 65,000 pistols made in .32 and .380 caliber between 1918 and 1927. Small numbers were made with existing parts into the 1930’s.
