Remington R51 Pistol SHOT Show 2014

As expected, the Remington R51 chambered in 9mm was a very popular pistol for SHOT Show, however we did manage to work our way in and check it out. It is easy to rack the slide but definitely does not feel smooth as you can feel the inner workings at play.

The trigger is very crisp with little travel. The grip safety is very easy to activate with little force needed. The decent sized grip fits large hands and feels very comfortable. 

R51 and R51 Crimson Trace Subcompact Pistol
The R51 Subcompact Pistol was available in a standard model as well as one equipped with a Crimson Trace Laser, which quickly activates with a press on the grip safety. The Remington representative did note that additional calibers are in consideration. The R51 was not available at Range Day for any shooting as the rep. noted they would prefer to explain the pistol during SHOT Show at their booth, but we can see a lot of potential for Remington's latest handgun addition.
