do you have the circle 10 mags ? if they dont have a circle and a 10 somewhere on the magazine you probly have the gen 1 junk mags . Circle 10 mags are cheap enough on ebay and may solve your problem .

Well mag issues were my first thought. But it is also chambering a round cleanly but not firing. As if the bolt is cycling far enough to chamber but not enough to reset the firing pin. I have a 30 round and an 8 round mag.

My newer model 597 feeds well but when it gets dirty sometimes it will hold open even when there is one round left in the mag, but I've noticed it only happens with one of the mags. I think the older 597s are just plauged with issues.

The one we have has been a complete pain in the a$$. For the first few months it was great now its always fail to eject, fail to extract, and double feeds. I polished parts of the bolt and the guide rods and it got a little better now its usually just double feeds. But I think a new extractor might help me out too. Im with you, 10/22 would be a better choice but I will not give up on this gun!

I had a 597 that I bought many years ago. It never cycled properly from Day 1. It got sick of it quick and it sat in the gun safe for years.

I decided to give it another try with different mags, and all of the tweaks and polishing tricks. Still no joy. I traded it at a LGS for $100 (pretty much what I paid for it at Walmart) and got a Savage Mark II FV-SR. Now I can shoot with joy.
