Default Remington 597

hey guys i just did my first review on one of my first firearm. This review isnt the finial product what so ever, its non edited and i know i forgot some stuff i wanted to mention. I was wondering if you guys could look at it and tell me what you like and what you don't like. let me know if i forgot anything that should really be in there as well. Link is to youtube where my video is at.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I thought it was a good video. Maybe in the next one you could let us see how it shoots.

Im very hesitant to make a shooting video for youtube, too many arm chair elitists to nick pick anything they can.

Good Review! I am going to look into an extractor for mine. I shoot the same gun. I like it and I have the same likes and dislikes as you do.

Right on tom, do the trigger hammer at the same time. It does make a huge difference when shooting the gun, especially when your shooting more then a hundred rounds in a single sitting.

I will do that. I also really want a wood stock on mine. I bought mine from a buddy for next to nothing it was like a year old. It has a camo stock so I have been looking around for the perfect stock.

The wood stocks can really take the rifle from looking from a toy, to a high end firearm. The only downsize that i noticed with my Boyd's stock was it added some weight. This wasn't a big deal for me because I shoot it from a bench rest, but if you take it hunting or doing some "run n gun" you might wanna think twice about it. Keep a eye out on Ebay for stocks, i got mine for 50 bucks and ill i had to do was re drill one bolt hole that did not line up correctly.

I will check it out!
I just shoot with my son. So weight is not an issue.
Thanks Surfgod247 for all the helpful info
