Last year before and during Shot Show in Vegas all the rage was the Remington R51. After all the troubles owners had and a recall today you rarely hear anything about the pistol. I have to admit I was quite excited when it was first announced, but it turns out to be longer than first reported and that gave it the first black eye. Then it had problems and was recalled and was almost down for the count. I happened to see one pop into Slickguns for a nanosecond, but now the post has gone MIA. Word from Shot 2015 is Remington has figured everything out and the gun is now ready to roll. I guess time will tell if this firearm is destined to be forgotten or can rebound and live up to the original buzz. My guess is it will slide into obscurity…
