    I have a remington scoremaster .22 magazine fed bolt action rifle. It was my grandmothers as long as i can remember and i aquired it after she passed away in 2007. I was raised by my grandmother and remember shooting it as a kid. It is chambered to shoot .22 shorts and long rifle, and i have 2, 5 round magazines for it. Does anyone know the history of these rifles. It has proof marks on it but i cant find a serial number

    She used to tell me stories about her squirrel and rabbit hunting with her .22 rifle whenever she was a kid. I think this is the same rifle that she was referring to

    Great family gun there and looks to be in good shape.

    Remington's .22 bolt guns have always been good and even the *cheaper* models were accurate shooters.

    That would be a perfect gun for a youngster to learn on. ;)

    ps: Your 1st attachment in the OP brings us to a Taurus revolver.

    It's a Remington 511, built from 1939 to 1963.

    To determine the build date, value and the variant of the 511, provide me with the answers to the following:
    1. There is a two or three letter code stamped on the barrel at the receiver end. What is that code?
    2. Is the rear sight mounted on the receiver or the barrel?
    3. Is the barrel a smoothbore? (For .22 LR shot cartridges)
    4. Are there more photos showing detail? (sights, stampings etc.)

    It's on the left side of the barrel just in front of the receiver and will look something like this:

    My first rifle was a Remington 512 Sportmaster, that I still have, and all the Rem. 5-teen's are great shooting and reliable guns. While they are not extremely valuable, they have a lot of good memories associated with them.

    It almost looks like it could be DRR.. The bottom part of the letters didnt seem to imprint

    DRR works better than DFF. ;)

    I acquired a 514 Scoremaster a few months ago for $25. The previous owners said it wasnt accurate. The bolt was hard or impossible to open and close. The first thing I did was take the side mount scope off. The mounting screws were interfearing with the bolt. I made a rear sight to replace the missing origional. When I shot it the first time, I was extremely thrilled with the 1 inch group at 50 yds. To me, it is a tack driver that can definately out shoot me. At times I feel guilty aboue what I paid for it. They are great guns that preform well.

    Yep, my old Rem. 512 shoots nickle sized groups at 50 yards with Fed. 550 Bulk Box ammo despite being 69 years old. I will say I had to put a scope on it for the benefit of my old eyes, the irons got pretty hard to see. :cool:

    Yup, mine is not at all fussy what you put down the tube. When I got mine I got a baggy with several differant kinds of ammo. I could hear the dif but it didnt seem to have an affect on accuracy.
