Default Rem 514

I was thinking of getting a new .22 for some plinking fun. Anyone have experience with this little .22? Is the Remington 514 a good rifle to shoot some cans and other targets for fun. Just looking for a fun little bolt twenty-two. Any input is welcomed.

Why not? I want to practice with something small, and then I can slowly work my way up to a more manly 700 or even the most manly of bolt action Rifles a Mosin Nagant.

A Remington model 514 was my very 1st firearm. They are great single shot rifles if you're not planning on mounting a scope. If you decide to mount a scope it'll either have to be drilled & tapped or grooves machined in the receiver. They are cock on closing, accept all .22 S/L/LR, had walnut stocks, and relatively trouble free. At most you might need an extractor or firing pin. Mine burnt up in the house fire in case you come across an extra on the cheap I'd be interested for nostalgia sake. What else do you need to know?

What is one fair shape worth? It has a narrow scope already mounted. Just don't want to pay too much.

I'd give a C note for it. They don't have much collector's value and if it has a scope on it it's already been modified. After all you can get .22s pretty cheap all day long.....Just sayin

Good, I will see if he will take less than the $175 he is asking.
