First Look: New Remington Guns & Ammunition for 2014

First Look: New Remington Guns & Ammunition for 2014

It appears 2014 is shaping up to be an exciting year for several Remington product lines.

Their new offerings include specialized extensions of their Versa Max and 870 shotgun platforms, as well as their 700- and 783-series of rifles. A handful of new R1 pistols also join their lineup of 1911s.

Remington's Ultimate Defense handgun ammunition will expand to include more calibers, and become split into two distinct performance categories — Full-Size Handgun and Compact Handgun. The Compact Handgun cartridges will be designed and loaded for optimal performance in popular concealed carry pistols.

Other new ammo includes Remington's Golden Saber Black Belt, which we expect will replace standard non-bonded Golden Saber ammo, once it reaches the consumer market in Q3 of 2014. Initial offerings for Black Belt include 124-grain 9mm Luger, 124-grain+P 9mm Luger, 165- and 180-grain .40 S&W, and 230-grain .45 ACP.

R51 Sub-Compact Pistol

New for 2014, the Remington R51 Sub-Compact pistol was designed as a modern version of Remington's original Model 51. Originally designed in 1915 by John Pedersen, the Model 51 was considered ahead of its time, and soon became one of Gen. George Patton's personal sidearms during WWII.

While designing the new R51 Sub-Compact, Remington aimed to modernize Pedersen's design to work with 9mm Luger and .40 S&W cartridges. They also wanted to maintain the personality, shooting characteristics and size of the original Model 51.

Enter the R51 Sub-Compact — a modern, concealable pistol with the ability to handle +P factory ammunition. The R51 uses a hammer-fired, Pedersen action with a locked breech and fixed 416 stainless steel barrel. It also features drift-adjustable sights and an aluminum frame with 25 lines-per-inch checkering on the front grip strap.

An ambidextrous magazine release allows left- and right-handed shooters to eject the flush-fitting, seven-round magazines — two of which come standard with the pistol.

Additional versions of the R51 Sub-Compact line will include one with a built-in Crimson Trace Laserguard, as well as another model with a threaded barrel for suppressor attachment.

The Remington R51 Sub-Compact will be available Feb. 1, 2014 at a price of $389.
