So I assume we all know the story. For those who don't... Amid a great deal of anticipation the R51 9mm pistol was released early last year and proved to be an absolute disaster. The pistol was plagued with problems such as the occasional tendency to fire out of battery, a horrifically gritty action, parts breakages, and even reports of pistols leaving the factory improperly assembled and missing parts (and many, many other problems). Long story short, it seems they got far more wrong than right. Remington responded with the promise of replacing R51's with working examples (which would be returned with extra mags and a Pelican case) or a voucher for a Remington 1911-variant. Unsurprisingly, Remington's initial forecast of beginning production on the new, improved R51's in the fall of 2014 proved too optimistic. From what I've read, production on the new R51's is supposed to begin this summer, meaning the people who opted to send in their R51's for replacements in many cases have been waiting for well over year. This leads to a question... would anyone here give such a pistol another chance? If the design is not inherently flawed, then it's possible to execute it properly but I am wondering what folks' thoughts are on giving another chance to a pistol that failed on such a colossal level?
