When a good friend told me he had bought his wife the Glock 42, I told him he had "gone over to the dark side".  She let me shoot it and I must admit it has a good feel, is accurate and performed flawlessly.

    Hi Cargaritaville,
    My RM380's trigger is almost as good as my R9s. Another RM380 that I held at my dealer's had a rough trigger. There seems to be a big difference from gun to gun. I suppose a gunsmith could fix it.

    I tried  two guns,  weeks apart but one seemed to have a lighter pull.
       Would that be spring or fit / finish ? ? ?

Don't get me wrong, the R-380 is a wonderful gun of its own right...

However, when Remington came out with a .380 ACP after all that time, it felt like an admission of defeat to me.  That could not have been their goal.

You just can't mass produce a Ferrari on a Ford assembly line...

Also agree. . . . . In working with them in 2014 in their R&D department for that short time during the transfer, head of R&D mentioned they wanted to introduce the RM380 first and then reintroduce their R51 with considerable updating in the quality. After that, they had planned on bringing out the R9 but not after they felt comfortable with their updated design of the pistol. On a side note. . . . Karl and I did finally receive our RM380 pistols from Remington and in our opinions they actually did a nice job on them. They shoot well and after a box of ammo was put through them, the trigger was not too bad at all for what it is. We feel they did a good job making the R9 Series Pistol for the price point they are at.
