Default Remington 597?

So what do you think about this rifle? I heard the magazines have had some issues, has this been resolved? Accuracy? Trigger? I would keep it stock so no 1000 dollar upgrades!

Agree! Way more after market support with the 10/22.
I have had my remington 597 in 22lr for years. It's accurate and reliable. Never had any real issues with gun or mags unless really dirty. The trigger sucks!

10/22 will be your best bet, but if you want the Remington then go for it, it's a good rifle.

I have nothing at all against Remington, but the 597 is one of their weaker products. If you can cough up an extra C-Note get the 10/22. Much better track record. I speak from experience.

Ya the magazines cause some feeding issues. I don't have one but my brother does. He has one mag that always feeds great but 3 others dont. I do have an old Remington Nylon 66 which I love but it has a magazine tube in the butt. So for mag fed I'm another vote for the 10/22s as well.

I just bought one ,a heavy barrel. After a box of federal bulk and a couple hundred federal match not one jam. No fail to feeds....nothin. It will do one ragged hole at 30 yds. I was hittin pieces of broken clays at 100 yds consistently from a rest with a 3-9x32 scope. Out of the box it shoots way better than a ruger. After a couple hundred dollars the ruger may keep up. Get one , you wont be disappointed. I paid $199 for the bull barrel version.

Have you ever shot a 10/22 out of the box? Mine could bust clays 9 out of 10 shots as us. That's with a simple 4x scope. $275 all-in. Bam!

Default The 597

I would pick up and shoulder each and would include the Marlin 60. After that I will commend U on your choice of the Marlin 60.It holds 15,slimmer profile, the sights are excellent,more accurate out of the box, and the receiver is grooved for a scope. On top of all this the Marlin 60 is less expensive than the Ruger or Remington, not cheaper.I have a plethora of .22's and my My 60 is always my go to rifle.

Needless to say I am a Marlin fan, but seriously check them all out, YOU will be much happier in the long run!

PS might as well check out the Savage 64 also, they do sell them scope included.
