Remington Model 600
 
I inherited a Model 600 Remington and was just wanting to know some info on it.

I know they only made them for a few years in the 60's and they were meant to be a guide rifle.. It is chambered .222.

Anyone have any experiences with this rifle? How much is it worth?


Thanks

I have one in .308- it WILL leave marks on you.

Look on the SIDE of the trigger for a letter stamped there. There is a safety recall on these- if no letter, call Remington with the serial number- under some conditions, rifle may fire when safety is released.

Made 64-67, yours is around $500-$800.

I have no stamp. Thanks for the reply.

Anybody else have any input?

Light handy rifles. Good idea that did not catch on. A friend had one in .308 anbd it was the most god awful shooting POS short of a Raven .25 Auto pistol. He could not hit the broad side of a barn, from inside the barn.

IIRC, they had rear locking lugs (6?). If yours shoots well, hang on to it. Reportedly they got a few right.

Before I get flamed, I am a Remington rifle fan, just not a 600 fan.

The concept was revisited with the model 7. They seem to have figured it out by then. They work.

Robo- 2 lugs at front of bolt- click HERE: 600 (*)

Is the front blade type site on the 600 the same as the Nylon 66? It looks the same.

c3shooter 07-05-2011 01:20 PM

Similar, not the same. The 600 takes part # 85940A, the Nylon 66 takes 82670C

I have one in 35 Remington that is supposed to be somewhat rare due so few in that caliber being made. Very handy size while not a tack driver, it is fairly acurrate at about 2 MOA. It wears a 2.5 Weaver old style with post/crosshair. Fast handling little brush gun. Never hear of any recall on their safeties that are similar in design to the old 1917 and 1914 Enfields. I know there has been some talk of the Remington 700 model's safety, but other than comments, I don't think there is a recall on them. It was the military and still is used as a sniper rifle

OOrah- there is a recall on the 600, or I would not have posted. I just got mine BACK from Remington, they having completed the recall.
