Remington Steps Up on R-51

From Gear Scout:

Remington Arms Company put out a statement today that addresses issues with theRemington R51 pistol. The company acknowledges performance issues and explains that the problems customers may have experienced resulted from the process of transitioning the pistol from prototype into mass production. 
“These problems have been identified and solutions are being implemented,” reads the press release, “with an expected production restart in October.” 
Remington says anyone who purchased an R51 may return it and receive a new R51 pistol, along with two additional magazines and a custom Pelican case, by calling Remington at (800) 243-9700.

Good for Remington! Way to step up and make things right. Keep it up.

Sing this to the Waylon Jennings tune "Are you sure Hank Williams did this-a way?": Are you sure John Browning did it this-a way?

How about just giving the purchasers of the unsafe guns their money back?

Nice to see Remington stepping up and being up front about the whole R51 debacle. It does open them up to lawsuits, but the offer to replace all the current units may protect them in the long run.

I hate to say it, but for years Remington has been quick to promise - and glacially slow to perform. If they did at all.

Right now, this is just another promise.

as long as Remington does the right thing and leaves my state ( the peoples republic of NY)completely, as Beretta is doing in Delaware, I say, good show.

BTW, speaking of good shows, "After Armageddon" is on H2 right now. H2....that is Hitler Channel 2. though I see more coverage of Schicklgruber on the Military, now the American Heroes Channel, these days
