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.
We took the SCCY CPX-2 out for the first time today. We ran a ton of different brands and types of 9mm ammunition through the pistol without so much as a single hiccup. The gun ran everything we put in it, and with more than 150 rounds down the pipe, the first test was a success. The CPX2 comes with two Ten round magazines and both the pinky and flush fit mag plates. The trigger is a double action long 9 pound pull with a long reset, but it is very smooth and comfortable to shoot. The three dot sights are very easy to pickup and accurate out to at least 20 yards, which is as far as we took it on this trip. The rear sight is made of steel and adjustable for windage only. Field stripping the weapon is also very easy and straight forward just as one would expect it to be. We will be doing a lot more testing on the SCCY CPX-2 over the next few months so stay tuned for the full review of this fine little handgun.
