The Remington® Model 597™ Rimfire Semi-Auto Rifle is a great choice for plinking, small game hunting, or firearms training. The model 597 features a super reliable bolt guidance system that uses twin tool-steel guide rails, and a unique positive locking, permanently rigid barrel attachment clamp. A cross bolt safety and a last shot ''hold open'' bolt provide safe handling. A nickel-plated sear and hammer contribute to the crisp, smooth trigger pull that enhances accurate shooting. The Remington Model 597 Rimfire Semi-Auto Rifle comes with front and rear open sights, and is drilled and tapped for Weaver scope bases (not included). Comes with one 10-round detachable magazine.
Best Clip Fed .22LR
I own this rifle and a Ruger 10/22. The 597 is the better rifle - hands down. I'll give you several reasons why:
* Last round bolt hold-open - more useful than you think.
* Adult sized stock with 14" pull.
* Superior ramp sights to the 10-22's Buckhorns
* Sights are adjustable with a screwdriver & Allen wrench (the 10/22 takes a hammer & drift punch).
* Better sight picture.
* More accurate in my hands.
* Better trigger break.
* Shoots any .22lr that's 1200fps+.
* Handles extented shooting better than the 10/22 (200+ rounds without cleaning)
* Clip ejects crisper (in any position) than the 10/22.
TIP - People that complain about jamming/missfeeds have over-tightened the bolt guide-rails and forced them out of alignment, or, didn't clean their new rifle before going to the range, or, shoot sub-sonic ammo.
Yes, you can customize the 10/22 until the cows come home. So what. I need a .22 that functions well out-of-the-box, not after $500 in mods.
After you clean it a couple of times, you'll see that it's as easy to clean as any .22 out there.

My gun was missing the ejector pin and spring when purchased. This leads me to believe the product has low quality assurance and is not assembled very well. I found that it is of very low quality and was very disappointed with my purchase. Was also disappointed that the model with the scope did not come with ironsights in case you want to switch off the scope.

I bought this rifle last year and shot it a lot i mean a lot never had a jam or anything. Just the one thing about this gun is it cant shoot shorts, which i did not know that. i guess clips wont allow that.

usually 10 +1 but i would stay away from the 30 round magazine because even with the best ammo it has a failure to misfire (FTM) and somethings failure to eject (FTE) but with the 10 round magazine its quick, legit and you wont waste you time out in the field trying to unjam your rifle.
