Remington RP45 is Now Available!

The much-anticipated RP45 is here!

Remington announced this week that the RP45 and RP45 Night Sight are now available for purchase nationwide!

A striker-fired, polymer-frame pistol, the RP45 is the “man-size” version (to use Clay’s words) of the company’s RP9.  “Man-size” because it’s the same gun only that it’s chambered in .45 ACP instead of 9mm.  We all know that 9mm is weak sauce.  LOL.

The full-size RP45 features a 4.5-inch barrel, a height of 5.56-inches, an overall length of 7.91-inches and one of the smallest grip circumferences in its class. Interchangeable backstraps (small, medium and large) ensure that the pistol will fit just about anyone’s paws.

With a 15+1 round capacity, the RP45 is a solid duty gun or home defense option. Purchasers will receive two double stack magazines.

The RP45 Night Sight comes with 3-dot tritium sights, for those that want the upgrade right from the factory.  Instead of having to mess with aftermarket sights.

The pistol sports a “smooth single action trigger with a crisp tactile reset.”

Features and Benefits:

• Two double stack magazines, one of the highest standard 45 Auto mag capacities
• Smallest full-size grip circumference, fits 95% of all shooters
• Ambidextrous Slide Release for improved control for left and right-handed shooters
• Smooth single action trigger with a crisp tactile reset
• 3 Dot tritium night sight (night sight model only)
• PVD coated stainless steel barrel for greater accuracy and durability
• Standard Picatinny rail
• Interchangeable back straps (Small, medium, and large)
• Optimized grip angle for reduced felt recoil and points instinctively
• Rear sight fighting surface
• Tactile loaded chamber indicator

MSRP for the RP45 is $418.  MSRP for the Night Sight version is $504.  I’ve seen several listed on GunsAmerica in the $320 to $390 range, depending on whether the user wants the tritium sights.

    It’ll be at CDNN for less than $300 by the end of summer. More junk from Remington…

    Remington entered a crowded market with no presence by them for many decades late in the game. The product positioning had to be difficult. What can they make at a price point where they can recoup the cost of new tooling and parts plus development and still make a profit, at least enough to justify the costs?
    Remington spent a lot to enter the pistol market at time it was already crowed with established players and other new players were already primarily pistol makers.
    That’s got to be tough.

    Will it work as well as the R51 did when it was released?

    • Scotty Gunn April 13, 2018, 6:22 pm

      Better, they will recall it only once, rather than having to buy them all back.

    Does the Ambi Slide Release actually work? It did not work worth a damn on the RP9: too flimsy and it bent/flexed but did not release the Slider when right side “Ambi Slide Release” was depressed.

      We’re getting one in for review. Stay tuned Will.

      I have a number of ambi slide release pistols and almost none of them work easily. I have an RP9 and it doesn’t work worth a darn either.
      As far as the rest, it runs like a champ, eating everything I have fed it with zero malfunctions. Works with 18 in the mag and one in the chamber too. Very accurate.
      It has a good but unusual trigger, reminding me more of an excellent AK trigger than a pistol. I find the grip a bit small and too smooth.
      It wouldn’t be my first choice but it is reliable and it will hit what it is aimed at.
      I look forward to the review.

    who is going to stand behind these products as remington works its way through bankruptcy?

    • Mike April 13, 2018, 9:03 am

      Hey jdmo, you don’t know how bankruptcy re-organization works? The company is honoring everything. Even the rebates it promised.
