Week in Review:

Ryan -

  • Wrote an article over at the Firearms Insider about the new Remington R51 and where it came from. Here is the link for the article, be sure to go check it out along with all the other great content over at the Firearms Insider!
  • Been pretty busy with show stuff and preparing to help out the guys who are in Las Vegas this coming week for SHOT Show 2014! Jake and the rest of the team have a really good game plan for covering as much as absolutely possible while out there.  Each team of two has a high definition video camera to capture as much video of the new products that are going to be introduced.  Please visit www.shotshow2014.com for all the coverage by the Firearms Radio Network!
  • A friend of mine got a deal on a shrouded hammer .38 Special revolver. A close friend had the firearm and just wanted to get rid of it, as they weren’t really a gun person.  They let it go for $50.  It is a Taurus 851 with an alloy frame and a titanium cylinder. It has a shrouded hammer, which I don’t particularly care for, but otherwise looks to be a great little .38, especially for $50. It’s his first gun, so welcome to the world of being a gun owner Jeffery.

Week in Review:

Ryan-

  • Picked up a nice Triple-K holster and some .451” roundballs for the .44 1851 Pietta Colt Navy at Cabela’s today! Finally I can get some shooting in, unless the temperature continues to stay below zero as it has been all week.
  • Saw some really cool handguns and rifles at the Cabelas gun gallery in Scarbourough, ME during our trip.  I got to handle a beautiful Remington Model 8 (I don’t know why I really like that rifle, but I do.) and also looked at some beautiful Colt and S&W revolvers that they had for sale.  Most were in somewhat obsolete or hard-to-find calibers such as .32 S&W or .38 S&W. There were a few vintage Steyr pistols and some odd looking Olympic target pistols chambered in .22 Short.  It is interesting to see what sorts of grips they put on some of those competition target pistols.
  • I am REALLY excited about the new Remington R-51 semi-automatic 9mm pistol.  I think the gun is really pretty revolutionary as it takes an old design concept that hasn’t been used in a very long time and revamps it for today’s marketplace.  The pistol uses a locking system designed by John Pederson and used by the Remington Model 51 pistol that was produced between 1918 and 1927 and was chambered in .32 ACP or .380 ACP.  The locking system allows for a fixed barrel like in a blowback pistol, but using a large, service size caliber that often just isn’t feasible in a blowback locking system.  I have fired the old Remington Model 51 and it is a very VERY fine handgun, and I cannot wait to see what Remington has done to update the design. Now if I could just convince Colt to make the Model 1903 Pocket Hammerless again……
