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
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!
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
