    Remington Rimfire Rifle 597 LS HB for first rifle

    What are your comments on this gun? I like the price. I know Remington makes a good gun, but I'm not really finding any reviews on it.

    I should add that I want the .22 Magnum.

    I haven't kept up 22's in years but I've never heard anything good about Remington 22's other than the 552's. My favorite was the old Remington 550's.

    Now I always recommend the Ruger 10-22. It is hard to beat. Tons of options and aftermarket and it has proven itself.

    I was looking at the Ruger 10/22 Target too..Would you take that over Remington?

    I would prefer the 10/22 if you are willing to go with the .22LR. If you want the .22 Mag the Remington is a good choice. They seem to be about the only .22 Mag semi auto that works reasonably well, though it will probably be picky about ammo (like all .22 Mags).

    ====================================

    I'd bet I've recommended 40+ people to get 10-22's and not one has complained yet. I know a couple of people that have tried the Remingtons that weren't happy, weren't happy to the point that they dumped the guns at a Gun Show for a loss.

    I did find some reviews on the 10/22 and they were excellent. I'm convinced I'm going to go with one. The 2 that I like are are exclussive to out of state dealers. I'm going to have to jump through a few hoops to get one, but thats easy and ok....

    Thanks for you opnions. I appreciate them all.

    You'll find some very in depth reviews on the Remmy 597 and 10-22 at www.rimfirecentral.com.

    10/22, not even a question.

    How big of a difference in accuracy is a 37" to a 38.5? I know longer the barrel the more accurate it is. Is an inch and a half a big difference? All I want to to is target shoot and I have the idea that further the distance the more fun it would be. What distances am I looking at between the two for accuracy? There is a free 100yd range just down the road from me. At 100yds, will it matter?
