If you get an answer from Remington's customer noservice you are way ahead of those of us waiting on return of our R51's.Update: I have still not received my pistol back yet. All attempts to contact the repair center end with "Someone's working on it." No estimated completion time. I have contacted remington's customer service multiple times and I hear nothing back. I'm glad everyone else seems satisfied with their R1s, but this has been the worst experience buying a gun I've ever had. First I get a pistol that doesn't work, then I get absolutely horrible customer service. NEVER buying anything with remington on it ever again.
I would encourage anyone looking for a 9mm 1911 to look at Springfield Armory.
If you want a very expensive paper-weight go with remington.
Well, after many emails and many calls I finally got some progress to report. Remington is sending a new pistol and a couple extra mags. We'll see if this one functions any better. Hopefully I don't have to wait too much longer before I can actually hold the gun that I paid for in October...If you get an answer from Remington's customer noservice you are way ahead of those of us waiting on return of our R51's.
