My brother had one of those lss 257 roys; didn't shoot well until he re-stocked it as the stock was warped. When he got her going, he dumped one of the biggest mule deer bucks I've even seen come out of the badlands at over 500 yards while using a fencepost for a rest. He's not one to settle on one toy for long, so it's gone already.

Contact Remington and ask them the same questions...

They have always been helpful to me, last summer I bought a bag of 300 RUM brass that had unfinished extractor grooves in all the pieces, I emailed them and they said send us "ONE"
pc to inspect, I did and about a week later they sent me a check for $72.00, I was floored but satisfied...

They also freely admitted that it was unfinished brass that got packaged prematurely !

contact Remington
How is it y'all still don't know the difference between CALIBER and CARTRIDGE ??

"In guns, particularly firearms, caliber or calibre is the approximate internal diameter of the barrel, or the diameter of the projectile it fires."

"Fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity"

It is one of the Tactical series rifles, not a Milspec. The 5R Mispecs are non catalogue rifles that are all stainless, with an HS Precision stock that is black with green webbing, and a Wundhammer style tactical grip. I understand the Milspecs are overruns of the M-24 rifles produced for the military and supplied in limited numbers.

+1 on call Remington, have serial # handy when you do.
It may well have been to the custom shop, and if so, who knows what all was done to the rifle.

I see quite a few sights selling them or similar but no one has commented on how they shoot, balance, likes/dislikes. I just wnjoy reading peoples opinions. Just wanting to read up on it and see how folks like it but I have no idea what to look under. Thanks for all the replies. I think I'll call rem and ask um.

Looks like a shooter. Feed it a steady diet of heavy bergers and you'll be in love.
