From what I've read on this and other boards, a 597 that works, is pretty good, but there are a lot of anecdotes of failures. Quality control?
Freedom Group has not gained a reputation for outstanding quality control.

I'm sure a majority of 597's are fine. A "common problem" could still affect a minority of rifles.

Still, I remember researching 22 autos last year and everything pointed at "just get a 10/22 already". Really can't go wrong with them and no major price difference in my area compared to the 597.

Sorry to hear about your trouble and I'm glad you daughter is okay.

I had an older 597 from around 2000. The thing never worked right no matter what I did even taking advice from over at RFC. I traded it in last year for $100 and got a nice reliable bolt action Savage Mark II FV-SR.

I still have such a hard time trying to figure out how rem went so far down hill , more people have emailed me stories and all about these guns in particular and it blows my mind , i grew shooting mostly rems for rifles or mainly bolt guns and never heard of or saw anything bad back then and now just the stories ive read about just these ones alone blows my mind you would think a company getting that much bad press would do something to fix their name , i know i would if it was my business , again though i do want to send a thank you out to everyone who has asked about my daughter , for a group of people that ive never met you guys are the best , ive seen too man threads that have turned into pissing matches and have gotten to the point i usually dont even bother with forums anymore but i must say everyone who has weighed in on this post has changed my mind alot thank you to all of you
