Remington 597

Saw a few at Dick's today. Comes with a scope $179 seemed like a good little setup. Just want it to plink around with in the backyard, and maybe teach the occasional possum a lesson.

Opinions? What I read online seems favorable, and the price is better than most on gunbroker.

Decent package deal if you never want to tinker with it. Decent gun but a flat platform. The rings and scope are worth $25.
The ruger 10/22 has more options for teh same money but no scope. Again, all depends what your end game is.

Here is a good sub-forum for that model:

I'd get a 10/22, and you would have no trouble reselling it if the time ever came.

Not a bad price. My buddy has a grey composite that we used for squirrel hunting. But I prefer my bolt action Marlin. With scope, I picked it up at a pawn shop for $80.

Thanks again,
Josh

I went up to buy a 10/22 from Dick's and was completely unimpressed with how cheap they were made and how poorly they felt in the hand. Maybe they're better once you throw some money at them but from what I saw I wouldn't buy one. I bought a Savage instead and love it!

10/22's have undergone several changes that have cheapened them up. Plastic trigger housings being the latest. It is a shame, but it still is the most customizable platform........ if that's what your looking for.

+1. Have not owned a new one in 20 years and went to check them out for my 13 year old. Wow have they crept into cheap import territory. Sad.

Happily he has decided that he wants a bolt gun, and I think a nice Czech made CZ will find its way into our safe. Or maybe a Canadian made Savage, they are nice as well.

I'd still take the Marlin 60.

I like this flavor of the 60 it's stainless steel and only weighs 3.25lbs.

well according to my dad,

"We all had Marlins growing up, we beat the shit out of em, and only cleaned them to make my dad shut up. Never gave us any problems."

Maybe if this thing with the boss doesn't work out I'll have to check out a Marlin, I wanted to look at a 10/22 but neither Dick's nor Gander had one in stock.

Dick's has a base model 10/22 for $199, sometimes you'll catch it on sale for $169-$189 range.

If you can find a Walmart that still carries weapons, they have the "All Weather" 10/22 that has the synthetic stock and stainless barrel. Though I think all metal parts on these are now painted rather than real Stainless.

If you keep an eye on Gun Broker, you can sometimes score a nice, older 10/22 with all metal trigger group for under $200. But a lot of guys are scooping them up since they too feel the newer ones aren't up to snuff. I lucked out in getting one of the last all metal 10/22 Target models with the polished parts.

As for the S&W 15-22 posted above...they've jumped up in price. Brianne picked hers up for $350, and at the time that was just a few bucks below the street price (we got it lightly used). I put about a dozen rounds through it before the extractor broke. I sent it in to S&W, and they sent it back with an updated bolt/extractor and a couple extra magazines for our trouble. So while I have mixed feelings for the product, their customer service was pretty damn good. I have to say though, these are going for $450-$500 now. The Magpul one looks nice, but they are closer to the $500 range.

I had nothing but problems with my 597, so it got traded for my 10-22. Not one problem out of the 10-22, and it actually is the stainless model...... yes real stainless.

The 597 had problems with feeding and extracting. I replaced the extractor, polised all the moving parts and still no dice. So off it went. I grew up with a 10-22 and should have kept that in mind for my first choice. My newest .22 is the GSG-5SD, and while it did have a few issues in the begining, it is absolutely my favorite .22. These will set you back around $500.00 though, and you need to do a few things to it but they are alot of fun.
