Remington 597 ?

Good mornin all!
This past year I won a Remington M597 .22 mag. Nothing fancy but free is always a good price!!

My question is has anyone out there shot a 597 and if so what do ya think about them?
I have always been a 1022 fan and I have not fired the 597 yet,(really nothing to hunt here with a .22 mag)

I did not want to shoot it if I am going to sell it.

If they are well liked I plan on keeping it. But if they are not well thought of, I would
like to take it down to the local gun shop and get something a little nicer!

Any opinions would be appreciated!!

THX!! Rob

Re: Remington 597 ?

Thanks for the reply!

All my buddys think I should sell it but I am thinking it would be a great little gun to teach my kids how to shoot?

The only thing is I would have prefered to teach them on something other than an auto.

Could make a good close range rabbit buster!

Thx! Rob

Re: Remington 597 ?

I bought one right after they came out. They are known to have a terrible trigger pull on them. I bought a "target hammer" from Canjar triggers for around $36.00. It takes about 10 minutes to replace the factory hammer, it's easy to do yourself. The target hammer will drop the trigger to 2-2 1/2 lbs. The hammer makes a new gun out of it. I was so disgusted with mine when I bought it that I was ready to get rid of it real quick. I called one of Remington's gunsmith and he recommended the Canjar. Look in to it if you are thinking of keeping the gun.

Thanks for the input! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

I was wondering about the trigger thing,it doesnt seem like the folks at Remington put much effort in this part of the gun. [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]
