Agreed.

Never mind that it looks atrocious, and literally everybody has already built a striker-fired polymer framed pistol.

At least the R1 (?) had cool lines. There's not many good-looking double-action steel autos except for Beretta, and good-looking is sort of a stretch for a 92. Maybe I need to hunt down a CZ to handle in person. I've got nothing against polymer, exactly, (got plenty of Glocks since they do go bang) but I do like steel.

15+1 45ACP sounds good for open carry/night stand gun.

I went to a launch event with Remington a year ago with this and I jokingly called it the "Remington American Pistol"...looks just like the Ruger...they sent me one and for now my recommendation would be to veer off...many function problems (failure to feed, failure to extract, failure to fully go in battery) with hundreds of rounds on multiple brands of ammo. Maybe it's because I got a first run gun, but I'm sending it back...

My Rp9 was sent off to Msp for the next roster meeting by my good friends at United Guns in Rockville.

Rp9 is a winner....not a turd.

I finally got my Rp9 to the range today. I put about 300 rounds through it with cheap steel case Tula ammo. The accuracy was above average. My range buddy was also impressed with how well it shot. The down side is the cheap quality of the magazines. The one malfunction I had was magazine related, a nose dive. I also think the slide is very heavy but some may prefer it. Thumbs up.

In case you have someone to send them to, PSA has the magazines for these in stock, $14.99 each. http://palmettostatearmory.com/remin...-rt17743f.html The magazines also fit my 9mm RIA double-stack 1911.

after watching the review above and without seeing any other reports...I dont see why this gun gets so much hate. It has looks to me and if its going for 250 bucks, thats not too bad of a deal. Seemed to function well in the video as well too. Just my opinion

Big R has a terrible track record with new design handguns. Ymmv. If you got a good one, great. I wouldn't trust it in the long run. It doesn't break any new ground. Actually seems stale and devoid of anything interesting. Low price is the only thing. And ,IMO, says nothing good.
