Default Remington 5mm magnum?

Anyone know about these? I hear that they were a failed attempt but I recently picked one up. I gotta get some ammo for it. Just trying to get some general info and maybe the value of it?

They make new ammo now for it (was discontinued for many years).
here's some-

guns were made in the early '70's only.

Mdl 592? Checked the closed auctions over on Gunbroker- $350-$450, depending on condition (one NIB for a LOT more than that) One hot assed little rimfire cartridge- 372 ft lbs, hotter than .22 mag or .17 HMR. Nothing wrong with the rifle, it just never caught on. They made about 52,000 of the 591/ 592 rifles. Aguilla is making ammo for them now. Before Aguilla resumed production, ammo was about $55 for a box of 50, but it is a lot cheaper now.

Yeah, its a model 592m. I picked it up for roughly 50$ if i remember right? someone obviously didn't know what they had. I know that a few people make the ammo, I just gotta order it. The gun is in really nice shape, no rust or anything which is good.

You should have at least taken him dancing and a few drinks.
