    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?

    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.
