POTD — Remington R51 Suppressed

There has been quite a bit of drama over the R51 the past year or so. It seems this new release by Remington hasn’t been functioning all that reliability. Well…looking at this photo I think I know what’s up. Apparently people aren’t getting the needed suppressors in the box!

(Ducking for cover)

Ok. Ok. I am kidding for those of you who don’t get the joke. I have never fired one or even held one! Pocket rockets aren’t my thing. But obviously my opinion is in the minority.

    Never shot one either. After the first roll out you would think that they would not release them again until every possible issue was sorted out, but I guess the accountants have to eat too right?! If they had been putting in suppressors in the box… nah, still would not have been interested.

    • Don’t really follow the design. Perhaps it’s not the same as the original from last century? That would explain all the problems?

      I know some designs work well with certain calibers but when you switch them to different pressures, overall lengths, etc. things change.

      Who knows.

        From everything that I heard, folks were really excited about the “return” of a great pistol, just in a 9mm format. From it’s release it was a real stinker, so bad that Remington recalled ALL the pistols! When they attempted to re-release it, it still had some of the lessor original problems, and they had somehow managed to create a few new ones by fixing the really bad ones that had forced it to be recalled. This is going to be known as an “Edsel” of the gun world for a very long time. It is really to bad that they rushed everything with it…

    Is there a threaded barrel option? or an aftermarket option?
