I have a new member of the family.  Yesterday I bought a Remington 597.  I’ve wanted a .22LR rifle for some time.  I was originally going to get a Ruger 10/22, but Sportsman’s Warehouse was selling the Remington 597 with scope for $219.

When the 597 first came out, it had a reputation for jamming.  Remington switched from plastic mags to metal and solved the problem. I’ve put ten rounds each of Remington Thunderbolt and CCI Stinger through it with no problems.  Talking to a couple other 597 owners and they say that it will eat any ammo you put through it.

In my hands, the 597 feels similar to my Remington 700.
