After some setbacks with its initial 2014 launch, the re-engineered Remington R51 pistol is set to hit dealers' shelves August 12, 2016. Look for the complete American Rifleman evaluation of the pistol in coming months, but in the meantime, here's what Remington says the new concealed-carry gun, which is based on the Pedersen design of the original Model 51, will offer:

  

Updated features include a precision-built fast-reset polymer trigger, a more aggressive and durable extractor design, enhanced recoil spring and a host of other features, such as: 
  • Less muzzle rise and reduced felt recoil
  • Light slide-racking force
  • Optimized grip angle and slim aluminum frame
  • 9 mm +P match-grade 3.4” barrel
  • Light, smooth and crisp trigger
  • Two semi-flush 7+1 magazines
