The title says it all. We took the Remington R51 out for it’s first day on the range and it failed badly. From failures to fire to not going into battery, the slide would stick constantly and even the grips tried to fall off of this little horror story. We finally had to call it a day when the action seized closed and wouldn’t open for nothing. So, this will probably be taking a trip back to Remington and I will report back when that happens. But for now I would not only pass on the R51, I would run away from it.
