Default Remington 510

Couple Of Questions,
First and foremost, Barrels,
I would like to get 2 barrels manufactured, one of the normal length, and one of 16.5 inch length, and I would like to know if ya'll know where i ought to go get some.
Secondly, I am curious if i can drop either the 511 Detachable magazine( with all of the right parts such as mag latch, guide plate etc)[ Preferred mode of loading] or the tube feeding system into it.
And third, when i get the barrels, what rate of twist should i get, and how many grooves?

You are trying to put a dress on a slop hog. Sure you can do it. By the time you are don converting your 510 to a 511 you are going to have $85 in to a stock, $300 in the barrels with machine work and $250 in parts and mags. That is $635 into a $150 gun.

Barrels for 2 sould be over $300 just to get then made and machined. The 510 is a good shooter and by doing all this you are not going to make it shoot much better. All your going to do is spend money on something that doesn't need it.

You would be better off buying a Remington 511 or 512 is you want a mag fed or tube fed rifle. If you are looking at a Remington 512 I would say look at a Mossberg 46B(b) or 146. These are tube fed and mine has an adjustable trigger. They are a better shooting rifle and cost about the same.

If you want a gun that you can do all that to then please get a Ruger 10/twentypuke. You can do what ever you want to them and never reduce their value.

Just some thought from a Remmy and mossberg rimfire lover.

TO really answer your questions.

With all the right parts yes you can convert it to a 511.

Barrels I would go with Shilen or Kreiger thats just me. There are tons out there.

You are going to get either a 1 in 16 or a 1 in 20 twist the 20 twist would be for shorts and you would need your barrel chambered for them. 16 twist is std for all other 22 rim fire rounds. 4 groove is going to be just about the only think you can get, maybe a 6 groove.

Ha. We have an "introductions" section near the top of the forums. We have a whole bunch of wallflowers waiting to befriend the new guy in hopes that someone will play with them. However let me be the first to welcome you to our little community.

Default Remington Model 510 "Targetmaster"

I am new to the forum and I need some expert advice on a Remington Model 510 "Targetmaster" with a date code of June 1947 (PSS)
I was given this rifle by a good friend who is moving. The rifle is in two parts, the barrel and metal assemblies and the stock. I think the stock does not belong with the rifle and the trigger guard is long gone.
If someone is interested, I would like to e-mail pics and have an expert view the pics and confirm my suspicions and tell me what I need to make it complete again.

No, it does not. I can e-mail you a pic if you will share with me your e-mail address.
Plus, were the original stock plain. This one is not smooth, kind of looks like a Glenfield stock, with carved patterns in the wood.
Plus, wasn't the 510 just a single shot, no magazine?

That explains why the fit between the metal barrel and mechanisms and the stock is not real good.
I would suspect the original stock was somehow broken at or around the trigger guard area and the original trigger guard was lost in the process.
I think that is all it needs, plus a rear sight.
I have tried to attach some digital pics for you to see.
