Picked up this one this past week. Came out of the estate of Jim Clark, Jr. Has a four digit serial number made in 1919. It is in excellent condition to be over 100 years old and still shoots like a champ (only shot 25 rounds of Federal .380 ball ammo through it; too expensive nowadays). It might have at one time belonged to Texas Ranger Robert "Bob" Goss, who was the partner of Lone Wolf Gonzales, back in the 1930's; will have to do some more research on that. Also got a Colt Officers Model .32 caliber 6" target revolver made in 1939 that belonged to Jim Clark, Sr.

I'm sure it's more reliable then Remington's modern version of the 51, Kind of better looking too.
The 51s are great little autos.

I just verified this past week that it did indeed belong to Texas Ranger Robert (Bob) Goss. I was very excited about finding this out and it makes a great gun even better.
