Today we take you along with us for our first trip to the range with the newly released Glock 43 single stack 9mm. The Glock 43 is a gun a lot of us have been waiting years for, especially since the release of pistols like the M&P Shield and the XDs. On our way to the range we stopped and picked up a few different varieties of 9mm ammo for the test. The little 43 ran like a top as far as reliability goes, didn’t have one single malfunction all day. We even got last round hold open on every magazine. The weapon is a little snappy on recoil, but that is to be expected given the size and weight of the handgun. Continue Reading

So it would appear that Remington has quietly pulled the R51 compact CCW 9mm pistol off of their website. We have also noticed that there are no Remington R51’s at any of the local shops around us. Does this mean that Remington is pulling the plug on this little handgun? Who knows? But, we have had more than one experience with the R51 and none of them were good.
So Where’s our gun you ask? Where’s our Remington R51 to be specific? Well that’s a hard question to answer because we don’t know really, we assume it’s safe at Remington getting repaired but after over 1oo days who can be sure. We have called them and received no answers on why it’s taking so long other then to tell us it’s being fixed. Not only do we not have a pistol but we are out our money. We will continue to do update videos till we receive either the weapon back in working order, or our purchase cost back. and to be perfectly honest I’d rather have the money. Stay tuned to TacticalExistence for more updates.
