For a semi-auto rimfire that zips out rounds with speed, look no further than the Remington Model 597 .22LR Rifle. This rifle features a bolt guidance system with twin tool steel guide rails, a drop-out, staggered-stack 10 + 1 metal detachable magazine, and a last shot ''hold open'' bolt for added safety. The Model 597 also features Teflon®/nickel-plated sear and hammer, adjustable big game iron sights and cross bolt safety along with a non-glare matte carbon steel barrel and gray synthetic stock.

A Great Value! I purchased a Remington 597 chambered in .22LR from Bass Pro about 2 years ago and have been pleased with the rifle. The other reviews I've read on this rifle are either "best ever" or "worst ever." I consider the 597 to be among the "Great" semi-automatic .22s ever made! This list also includes the Marlin 60, Ruger 10/22, Remington Nylon 66 (discontinued), and the Winchester 190 (discontinued). All of these are inexpensive, mostly reliable, and last a long time if you use just a tiny bit of sense. The 597's strengths are: great ergonomics for adults, easily adjustable sights, a Weaver scope base mounted on the receiver will not obscure the sights, it's pretty accurate, and the price is great. The weaknesses are: no sling swivel studs on most 597's, and loading the "box" magazine with cartridges is less convenient than loading the "box" magazine on other manufacturers' .semi-automatic 22s. This is not a big deal for me but it is noticeable! October 22, 2013
Bought 2 and Disappointed Bought 2 - 597's as first 22s for my two boys. Decided on the 597s because of positive reviews on out of the box accuracy. Long story short, very disappointed in the accuracy of both. After many trips to the range testing multiple brands of ammo, I wouldn't trust trying to hitting a squirrel without fear of wounding and losing. Changed mounts to Weaver style and tried different scopes hoping to improve accuracy. After many attempts, even the best group with the 597 doesn't come close to what I would call acceptable or come close to other 22s owned. Did jam but didn't pay attention if it was a particular brand of ammo that jammed or if it was across the board. September 24, 2013
junk awful rifle, tryed every brand of .22 ammo, the only thing this rifle was do was jam and miss feed, sold it to a gunsmith, he could not even get it to fire with jaming January 17, 2013
The rooky. This is a amazing product. This is my first .22 and it is amazing. I don't have a scope with it yet but it still has wicked accuracy. January 15, 2013

A: 
Yes, as long as you have the proper "rings" to do so! The rings hold the scope firmly to the rifle or rifle base. I suggest you add a "Weaver" type base to this rifle and then use "Weaver type rings. Please note: The rings must be the appropriate "height" for the scope that you choose. The Bass Pro gun guys should be able to help you out with this!

From the Remington 597 sight:

"Receivers are grooved for standard rimfire mounts and tapped/drilled for Weaver-style bases."

A: 
The magazine that comes with the Remington 597, chambered for .22LR cartridges, holds 10 "rounds" of .22LR cartridges. Remington also sells additional 10-round magazines as well as 30-round magazines should you want extras.
There is also a 597 that is chambered for the more powerful and more expensive .22 Magnum cartridge. This 597 Magnum comes with an 8-round magazine. If you want extras there are only 8-round magazines available.

A: 
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.

A: 
The stock clip, I think holds 10 rounds. But now you can pick up a 30 round clip for around 25 dollars. Yes, I was surprised to see a 30 round clip for the Remington 597.
