Just ordered a 597 Magnum along with Tandemkross's 597 trigger kit (http://www.tandemkross.com/Remington-59 ... _p_75.html). Anybody installed one of these trigger kits yet?

As a follow up, I got this rifle sighted in a weekend or so ago, using Armscor 22 WMR ammo and a Simmons 22Mag 3-9x40 rimfire scope. What a combination. Shoots great and has been trouble free.

It's been awhile since your last visit...

Do you have any pictures of your new 597...?

It looks completely non-descript, but that stock is impervious to everything.

I like the looks of it. Rather sleek and has nice lines. Great to have one as I heard Remington has cancelled the 22 magnum version.

Had not heard that. I originally got one of the new Ruger American Rimfire 22 Mag's but just didn't light my fire. Since I had stocked up on 22 WMR, I needed to slide something into the gunsafe to replace that when I sold it. Only natural here....

I was fortunate enough to get a used 597M back in 2008, but did not shoot it often as I kept having FTF/FTE probs. I read that it was a magazine prob. I made sure I had the v3 ones and cleaned them thoroughly, but that did not help. Finally about three years ago, someone suggested I change out the extractor for one made by Volquartsen. Wasn't very expensive, changed it and now it works great. My Remmie was in very good condition when I bought it, so it still shoots great!

Recently found something else that helps with my #597...a "version" of black magazines that work better then the first three. They are made of plastic, but no big deal. Just wish someone made some larger capacity magazines for the Magnum rounds.
