Heard that; very unfortunate, as it is a unique and good operating pistol, when it is used with good magazines. Well, Remington is having their fair share of problems lately; hope they don't go the way of the Do-Do Bird.

Well, that sucks.

Better stock up on parts and mags while you can.

Sorry to hear it. I picked one up last Fall and it works fine. Based on this info I just ordered two more magazines (probably won't need them - BUT).

Mine has been flawless. May pick up some spare magazines. Maybe a good time to pick up a spare R-51?

I was wondering if these qualify as good enough to lay one in even knowing that support will be dying. Thoughts?

They are excellent pistols. One is my full time carry, and I have a second stored away. They are not complicated pistols, so should be fairly easy to maintain and service, and magazines are fairly easy to come by, at least at the present time. JMO.

Mine is reliable enough to carry. If the R51 is discontinued, I wonder if it will be replaced by a compact version of the RP9.
