I don't know if I've mentioned it here or not, I did a search and didn't find anything I'd posted, so if I have, bear with me. I bought a used Gen 2, Remington R51 a few weeks ago. I knew the gun had a checkered past, but I have a soft spot in my head for unloved guns. Bad: Got it home and found one of the magazines was a "gen 1" type, and was basically worthless. Tossed it, sent an email to Remington and got two new magazines in the mail a few days later. Good: I like the gun. It feels great in my hand, and I like the way it looks. I don't say that about many semi's. I've fired about two hundred rounds through it in the last couple of weeks with no problems. Not the first one. It does shoot a little low at 7-10 yards, if I use my standard 6 o'clock hold. Moving the POA up to cover the X on the B-27 resulted in a big hole where the X-ring had been. Not a really extensive test, but it's looking good. Oh bad:, it is a bear to take down and reassemble. Hopefully it will get better with use. We all like pictures.
