Remington 51 Grip Detail
On the left is a prototype--note there is no magazine safety lever and no metal plate on the back of the grip. (We believe the grip is a production plastic piece that is missing
the metal plate and rivets--note that it has indents rather than overhangs.) The original design was for the grip to be held on by dovetail grooves in the plastic. Pedersen actually patented this grip retention
method. On the right is a production gun--you can clearly see the magazine safety lever and the metal plate on back of the grip. These grips never fall off and rarely crack or break.
