Sounds promising. I hope they get this one right after the R51 mess. I was in the factory with the R51 early in it's phase, and kept my true feelings quiet to those around as I was, and still am, an "outsider" to them. History on the R51 whoops is out in the open, so that's that. The RM380 (Rohrbaugh 380 variant) truly looks as if they got it right. . . . . and I am so happy to see that for both sides. . . . . . My side and Remington's side. I wish them success with "our" little gun!  Most of the real work they purchased from Karl and I.   ;)

Looking good. It's amazing what dollars in your pocket can do for R&D. Once they are out for a while, I will be picking one up for myself. . . . . Just because of the lineage.

I think they got their idea for their RM 380 torture test from my August 2005 post. 250 rounds of UMC

Fired my R9S for the first time on Saturday.  Shot 250 rounds  of Remington UMC 115gr and 40 rounds of Speer Golddot 124gr without any failures.  The recoil was not as bad as I expected.  The only thing that did happen was toward the end when my hand was getting tired and my palms were a little sweaty, I didn't rack the slide back far enough because my hand slipped and the round got stuck with the slide open.  This happened twice and I attributed both times to not pulling the slide back far enough.  I don't consider this a design flaw, I consider it user error.  Overall I am very happy with the gun.

I'm hoping you can get magazines without the extension.

I know some people like those but I'm in the camp that I get a small gun for a reason and I don't want to increase its over-all size with a magazine extension.

Or maybe those come off?

I have to admit I haven't read or listened to all of the reviews.

Your first post to the Remington link shows the magazine without the extension; hopefully, it comes either way. I suspect that is the case.

I believe the RM380 comes standard with two magazines, one with and one without the extension.

I just called Remington who referred me to Para who said that the gun won't be shipping for a few months yet. Everywhere on the net it says late May/early June.

Greetings, RF members.

Just spoke with my LGS manager right in the figurative front yard of Remington's Huntsville Alabama facility and he said the same, a few months away, August or September.
