    anyone have experience with it? how is the accuracy at 100 / 200 yards?
    looking to have a dedicated smallbore silhoutte and compition rifle, presently using a savage MKII, getting -1.75" groups at 100, -7" at 200.

    how does the model 5 compare to a cz 452 / 453 and mkii?

    Might try asking over at Rimfire central.com as well in the remmy section. There are a bunch of owners over there.

    All I can say is that it is an import from some old eastern European country.

    If you want a comp ready rimfire from remington you need to look at the 40x rimfire or the 547 these are going to give you the best bang for your buck in a comp ready rimfire.

    i'd like to get a 40X, just don't have the funds or forecasted future funds to get my hands on one. have cabela points to use up, plus an extra mailer for 20.00 off for a purchase over 120.00. i just called my "local" cabelas (about 1.5 hours away), the guy said i can use both the points and the 20.00 off toward the rifle.


    with tax and registration, should be about $175.00. although i love my mkii, i think i hit the accuracy wall and can't get much more out of it. i was saving up for a cz, but when i seen this remington, it caught my eye for a dedicated silhoutte set up. can't seem to find anyone that has good grouping #'s past 50 yards though.

    trying to get on rf central, but my log on info is messed up.

    biggest thing is i don't mind passing this up and going with the cz for the extra $, but if the model 5 is close, i'll take a trip on saturday to get it. just not convinced yet, so if you guys have any other opinions, reviews, or experience with it i'd appreciate it.

    i don't want to have a "should've bought a cz" moment.....
