Default 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.

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.

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

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.
