Remington R51

One of SHOT Show 2014's hottest new products, the Remington R51 is Big Green's official entry into the subcompact concealed carry market.

The Model R51 is a combination of features chosen specifically to make it extremely easy to point and shoot. Its grip angle has been optimized for rapid target acquisition. The low bore axis design boosts this effect while also aids in offering up to 25 percent less muzzle rise at the shot for faster, more accurate follow-ups. For comfortable carry, it features a lightweight aluminum frame with rounded edges.

The Model R51 subcompact is chambered in 9mm Luger +P, and will ship with an MSRP of $420. A variant featuring a Crimson Trace Laser Guard will be available for $609.

Get a closer look at the R51 with the video embedded below.

I see a lot of caliber wars going on here. Why the 9mm instead of the .40, you ask? 1) Cheaper ammunition, 2) Less pressure so your handgun will last longer, 3) Less recoil / more controllable / better accuracy, 4) NATO round, 5) It has been around longer than anyone that is posting on this site. I get so tired of the whole caliber war. If you want a .40 than have it. Most don't want anything to do with it. With today's technology, it is less about caliber and more about ballistics. Today's ammunition is more advanced, more powerful and preforms better than ever imagined. If I need anything bigger than a 9mm, I'll grab my 45. However, let us not forget a handgun is nothing more than a weapon to fight your way to a better weapon...AKA: A shotgun or rifle.

Gun owners are, in general, opinionated. People either love or hate Glocks and it will probably be that way with this gun. This is not a me-too entry into the compact pistol market; it's a revolutionary in design. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I like the looks better than a Glock.

9mm? What about a .40 caliber? That Have a tad more stopping power don't you think?

Can we get off the 9MM and back to the 45ACP please? Twice the surface area and twice the knock down power. It is and attractive weapon yes but I want to make sure who I defend myself against stays down.

Ok everybody, let's sit back a bit and let the many make use if this fine pistol. While we observ if any recalls like the other fine manufacturers sent out due to design and parts failure. There will be more put out there for sale of course. The more the the consumers demands this the more the manufacturer would choke the availability! Which in turn jacks up the price by many increments through a short time. Keep watching, sit back and don't jump the gun.

Looks like a nice pistol. I would love to see Remington come up with a .22 Mag conceal carry pistol as well.

I'm intrigued, but how does this compare to my S&W638? Does the 51 have more punch with its length barrel? How bout size? Is a .40 coming out of the same size?

Remington, the company that sold out the citizens of New York State and invested $20 million more cash into NY after the anti gun's made most guns illegal.

The video on the Remington website is much better than the SHOT Show video. It discusses the design and shows quite a bit of shooting.

It looks like it was made to give the Ruger LC9 a run, because it looks very similar.

Put my name on the waiting list for one as soon as I can get it. Had the LC9 but like Remington guns and this should be a great one for IWB carrying.

The orange tags signify the firing pin/striker has been removed for safe handling. Typical at large shows.

I'm sure he's a crackerjack engineer; but this was not a 'best foot forward' marketing move by Remington. As far as the looks of the gun; as if they're trying a little too hard to get product placement in a 'Firefly' episode... All that aside, I'll give one a try.

It is a Remington, it isn't plastic, and the sale price is going to make these things extremely popular. Many great reviews on this pistol already and it will be available retail next month. I am going to get one for sure.

What's up with Remington. Some videos of the new R51 slide are stamped 'Remington, Charlotte, NC'. Others just say 'Remington'. They have been located in Madison, NC for years - a long way from Charlotte. What's up? Are they moving?
