I decided to see how the old Monkey Wards stuff patterned before moving on.
I did some reading, got information and motivation on the 597, and decided I needed to spend some time, money, and TLC/effort on it. Your gun is more reliable than my friends farm gun, which seemed to FTE more often. I see some negative posts and can only assume they’re from 1st or 2nd generation ammo clips. I recently purchased a 597, onto which I mounted a 3-9X scope, and while I haven’t had a chance to take it to the range, I have high hopes for a successful test. The friction between the two was so great, that I could carefully pull back and release the bolt, and it would hold itself open through friction! My recommendation would be a trigger shoe of some sort to smooth out the feel of the trigger, and Remington need to furnish the 597 with sling swivels fore and aft, or the importer needs to factor this in. As I think about the main reasons for this, semi-autos can be prone to cycling issues and sometimes produce more noise owing to the gases used to throw the bolt back and cycle the action. The trigger still works the same way. It won’t eject some of the weak, subsonic ammo on the market, but practically no other semi-auto .22 rifle or pistol will cycle that stuff either. It has been certainly for me and mine. Just today at the range I set 597 on the table and scope and mounts came off gun. (This is a reader gun review contest entry, click here for more details.). I’ve been very happy with my Remmy 597 for a few years now as well. 1. I own 10 different brands, including a 10/22. The 30-rounders aren’t as reliable but they function just as well as Ruger’s BX-25 does in a 10/22.
I do however, wish I’d have picked up a model 66 Nylon in my travels. closer attention when oiling these after I cleaning the gun, 5 stars for me in the accuracy department. Barrel length: 20in . I should have spent more time on the bolt. But who cares? Clean it, and reassemble. Visual inspection under magnifying glasses has not shown any hairline cracks or deformation to the rest of the parts. I got the version with a synthetic stock and scope because, frankly, my old eyes don’t do well with iron sights now.
I watched the action binding in the bolt, I backed them off, and the bolt snapped shut. This is more should have been. You can get custom barrels from Jarvis for $250.Get the “budget blaster” 597 to perform properly. Early magazines were made of plastic and caused a number of feeding problems when loaded with more than three to four rounds. Why does the Ruger crowd always seem to point out, that if someone states, that the Remington 597 (or Marlin, Mossberg, Savage etc) is more accurate out of the box, that with a few mods and after market parts, the Ruger 10/22 will out shoot the aforementioned rifle. years back, I wasn’t comfortable doing any work on a gun . I remember when I was trying to decide between the 597 and the 10/22. The main reason those jumped out at me is because those groups look a bit large for 25 and 50 yds.. You said you’ve shot better groups so it made me wonder if those may be partially to blame.
Just not as good of a buy as a 10/22 for $220 (or whatever they are going for now). gun at home, took the gun out again to the range. Sorry, but on takedown… hex wrenches??? And for the magazine, I’ve loaded and emptied it many times, but only tone will tell. Comments noted. I buy armscor, which is a phenomenal grade ammo for price and just as good as CCI to me. Another issue that I have experienced: infrequently the last round will not feed into the chamber, and the bolt will lock open with one round left in the magazine. Checking tension on action rods is very important. A neat recessed logo, model number and serial number highlighted with white lettering grace the far side of the ejection port, as the action tapers off nicely to the front where the barrel tenon slots in. You should not have to repair or redesign a brand new rifle. For the few years I have owned this rifle, I have always been impressed by the rifle’s accuracy. I too have a 597 and I had some of the problems that you described about the gun misfiring. The Remington 30 round magazine is, however, another story. Sadly, 597 was discontinued in 2019. Took the gun As he returned to get his bipod, the first bunny popped out at about 80 yards. the bolt will be too slow. I began the search for my first firearm a few years ago, and felt I should begin with a semi-automatic rifle chambered in 22lr. Only the Remington 597 had FTE problems and I sold it within a week. the thickness the mechanical parts were not moving as smoothly as they The gun’s “wield-ability” and accuracy was superb and I never once had any kind of failure — not to feed, not to eject, no FTFs. FINAL THOUGHTS Accuracy is good, but being totally unreliable doesn’t give any confidence to use it for hunting. Less so than through use, but it does nevertheless. actually see it move back and forth, but I could easily tell the difference As far as which brands of ammunition to use, I have run all brands of bulk ammo from bricks without issue, Remington subsonic ammunition, CCI high velocity, CCI hollow points, the tin of unknown brand shells in my grandfathers garage, and Winchester target loads, and all of them have functioned quite well.
And with a $200 at rifle I feel greedy wanting better performance. Admittedly I’m spoiled by my 10/22 that has a nicer .920″ barrel, some trigger work, and a couple of other goodies, but the 597 is just kind of “meh.”. It’s very accurate for coyotes and ground hogs at up to 100 yards, which is what I use it for (may be accurate to farther than 100 yards, but I don’t really shoot farther than that, so I can’t say). All in all, it’s not a challenge to clean or take apart as long as you have a set of Allen wrenches handy. a long story short, this process continued until (reluctant as I was) I I’ve tried 7 brands of ammo and none of it was the cheap bulk ammo. I’ve had to throughly clean debris from the bolt and receiver. You can argue creep all you want but for the typical user this just isn’t n issue. Glad you pointed this out.
I purchased the Volquartsen “Exact Edge extractor” & also their VQ “Target” hammer .. and a nice Nikon ProStaff 4-12x40mm scope. I bought my nephew a 597 a couple years back…package deal with a cheap-o scope, olive green synthetic stock. Unboxing the Remington 597 synthetic is never going to be a ground-breaking experience for any shooter that has used a good number firearms – it’ll be a highly familiar sight. The front I shot about 200 rounds, with one misfire. I don’t presume to have the Holy Grail in my gun safe, and to each his own, so I will not bash others for what they have purchased or what they are happy with. Ergonomics fire.
I inspected and cleaned the magazine as well. on, and don't let the spring take off.
It was definitely the AE. I went with the Marlin 60 for my first .22 (which was only 4 or so years ago). Required fields are marked *. Mine fails to eject about 10% of the time. Cleaned it, but left it mostly dry of oil, I’m a .22 rifle guy.
I never considered the Remington. Remington’s customer service was awesome — they inspected and reconditioned the gun and gave me a new magazine. Now, as far as semi’s goes, I have a Remington 550-1 which is post war and will out shoot Ruger, Marlin or Savage.. Cyclical deformation and return are much more damaging to springs. MSRP: $204.
Several boxes of cheap AE. Whoops! Literally 1 in 3 was a misfeed.
Maybe you have self-esteem issues. I’ve no idea where the extractor itself ended up. Reliability: * * * * some grease that was very thick. It’s a classy, very reliable .22 with a terrible trigger. ), this one will not be too much trouble to add into your routine. I’ve run various brands of ammo through it with no FTF or FTE until…. We can’t, because leaving magazines loaded DOES affect the spring.
Big Green may have slid into near-irrelevance but they did right by me. The second rabbit stood over its fallen pal.
I pulled a bad batch of ammo. For those that argue about inexpensive magazines with inferior allows, those will fail regardless of what you do, compress, cycle, store empty. Once again, compared to the 10/22 where the options are essentially limitless, this rifle barely has anything, but enough options are commercially available that you can use this weapon for a variety of purposes and it has enough configurations to keep most shooters satisfied. Not enough oil, and Mine functions very well and is, as you said, highly accurate. Only the Remington 597 had FTE problems and I sold it within a week. As far as accuracy, I routinely shoot cloverleafs with a cheap scope and standard velocity CCI at 50 yards.
I had a semi-auto and bolt-action .22LR and my 597 got dumped into my closet, sitting for a year. Maybe Marlington can use the model 795 mechanics in their next offering?? Now you can remove the bolt itself and thoroughly clean the receiver section of the rifle. So customization I would have put at 4 stars. -Brian 600 grit got it functioning. Stuart Wilson gets stuck into the Remington .597, a nifty .22 semi-auto bunny shooter from one of the world’s longest-serving continuous manufacturers.
Upon firing, it moved so fast that I couldn't After that I would expect good sales and feedback from this capable bunny/vermin rifle, not forgetting the various target disciplines in our small-bore target clubs.

From reading various articles… I have had great times with this gun and many raccoons have met their end from hot lead from this barrel. when Adam pulled the trigger. Love mine. Green lost it’s way with the intro of the 522 and followed up with this…. If the bolt still resists moving with the trigger group removed, check the guide rods. Compressive force not past the point of permanent deformation (standard loaded magazine) are just not noticeably damaging to the spring. accumulate, forming a sludge. Would not feed or extract reliably while using them.
I should point out that the only ammo I ever used was Federal 62 gr solids. A friend of mine bought one of these at Walmart a few years back. The original poster boy for POS. Nothing fancy, just fully functional.
The zeroing on paper was far from shabby also. A quick check of prices of Ruger vs. Remington at CTD shows the cost at $219 vs. $188 (the cheapest models with iron sights) in favor of the Remmie. Remington 597 Magnum - Problems with new rifle 1) All four magazines would not lock into the guide; rather, they would drop approx. 1/100 is pretty darn good.
