Default 513 t

I was wondering if anyone here had one of these? The one in the family shoots bug holes at 50yds, but we have never run into anyone else that has one to ask them about theirs.

Wow dicky! I haven't thought about that rifle in years. I bought one used, 1957 when I was a kid, with money I made haying for the neighbor.

Great rifle, Remington got everything just right on that one. At 50 yards a sparrow didn't have a chance. Mine was marked "US Property" and was a little heavy for a 10 year old, but It really made me look good on rabbits and squrrels, even took a few pheasants and ducks with it.

I'd hate to think how many miles I carried that thing. Lot of good memories were made with it.

Then while I was out of the country in the Army, my evil stepmother gave it and my Schwinn Racer to her paperboy. But thats a whole nother story! Ken

Good to hear a fellow fan of these rifles! They are wonderful to shoot. I will have to agree that they are a bit on the heavy side, especially for a .22 of all things.

By chance you wouldn't happen to remember what sights were on it would you? Ours has a very fine peep style that I think is made by Redfield but I can't remember right off hand...

Yep, sounds like the one I had. Mine had a hooded front sight and a peep sight on the rear with a VERY small hole. Super accurate set-up. I only used the old wax coated Winchester SuperX .22lr ammo in it.

Mine also had swivels and a M1 Garand sling on it when I bought it. I should try to find another one today, just for old-time sakes, but they are very pricey in good condition. Enjoy Yours!

I have one as well as a 511x. Both shoot great.

My 513T will shoot 1" or under at 100 yards and all will be touching at 50. Great shooters all them old remington.

ahh, nice tango! I have never seen the 511x. Is it a bolt gun as well?

I have never shot the 513 any further than 50 yds, guess I will have to stretch it legs a bit... Ours seems to favor the remington thunderbolt stuff.

All the 5xx series are bolt guns.

they go from 510 on up to the 521t

The x on the end of 511x just meant it had nicer sights on it. A 511P had peep sights. The 10 is a single shot the 11, 13, 21 are all mag fed.

The 513T was the unranked team member practice rifle when I was in college at MIZZOU. [GO MIZZOU!] It was really a great little rifle. It wouldn't shoot quite as good as the Win 52s, Rem 40X and the Martini we also had, but for the shooters trying to make the top 10 traveling team, it was more than adequate. 100-10x were possible on the 50 foot prone stage. They have very good value, so don't give it away. Keep it and shoot it alot! Tb

Don't you just hate that? Giving up one good gun for another? But I understand - been there done that....
