As long as you do not pull the trigger.

Same goes for Glcok and many other hammerless guns.

Too old school am I. Just don't like a gun without a hammer I can see.

Since this gun is probably classified as a "pocket pistol", being hammerless is probably a plus. Although I think the "snagging on the lining" is pretty much Hollyweird myth. It would be a gun I would be confident to fire while still in my pocket of my field jacket.

Always worried of this happening without a safety. (Link is what I think of)

Considering that the MSRP is a hair under $400, should be expect this pistol to be available a hair under $300?

They just announced a pricing bump on one of the Shot Show videos.

They said around $420ish MSRP now.

R-51 Shot Show Report

The New Remington (restyled/remanufactured) R-51 is a pretty good looking and feeling weapon! I have held (but not shot its predecessor) and I have to say they did a good job on the styling and the engineering of this remake of the old 1920’s classic handgun.

Remington has produced the R-51 in 9mm caliber for the Shot Show launch…with a .40 caliber promised soon...as the next lineage model of the R-51, assuming a successful initial launch…?

The R-51 launch success fact will be proved out in just be a matter of time, judging from the view of the Remington Booth – as it was a in a tither - with thousands of folks jamming in and clambering about to handle the show models of the R-51.

They even had a free tee shirt give away to promote the launch of this impressive handgun...which caused even more crowds to sign up for the usual drawing to register for the free R51...and then get the free R51 tee shirt! The booth planned on a limited 500 tee shirts per day, and they ran out of the promo tee shirts by 11AM each day.

Of course I did get a free tee shirt along with the chance to handle the highly publicized new Remington 51 model.

I'd say I was over hyped in my own expectations for the R-51's well storied introduction, and I was very anxious to hold it. So perhaps that might explain my slight disappointment in the narrow feel of the grip for my own hand, and the overall size of the weapon being a bit larger in length, as it differed a bit from my expectations, which was - the size and fit of the Walther PPK....but on the whole, it felt and looked pretty good.

The price was quoted in the low $400's for the base model, and their other introduction R-51 SKU contained a custom Crimson Trace laser, priced in the mid to high $500's.

So in the end I did order one…of course the real proof will be in the final firing tests…yet to come.

Remington R-51 shipping is promised in mid-February, although remember that that promise was from the Remington sales and marketing folks...which maybe be more hyperbole than fact…although a local distributor took my FFL's order promptly.

So the waiting game begins, to determine if the Pederson genius is replicated in this remake and if the blowback design actually delivers the accuracy of the Walther PPK/s.

I'll post an amateur photo of the R-51 from the Shot Show in a bit...

I wonder why it was not available on the Media day.

Here's a photo of the R-51 with the Crimson Trace built in laser and a sweet ADV suppressor from the 2014 Shot Show
