Remington® Model 597™ .22LR Rifle
i bought this gun for my son at christmas, i must say i could not be more pleased. we have put around 300 rounds through it and no misfires or jams. this is his first firearm and he loves it. the gun came with a scope already installed and after being zeroed in you could not ask for a better shooting gun. bottle caps and even foam earplugs from 35-40 yards! great gun!

I fired less than 60 rounds before this rifle's trigger broke. It was accurate, I can say that. I have not been impressed with Remington's customer service in the past so I will see how this goes with the warranty.

Darn good 22 if you ask me
I just bought this neat lil rifle and i have to say i will never regret it, it performs well, i ran a brick of xpert hv winchesters through it without any jams,no failure to feed.its an all around great rifle,and theres an AR conversion kit for it(archangel 597), and hey who said you cant use a 22 for home defense buy the 30 round remington magazine and tell me you dont have enough fire power to stop an intruder.no one wants to get shot no matter the size of the bullet.

out of the box would not feed any shells into the barrel. The bullets show a scrape that looks like it could only come from the extractor which causes the feed failure. Called Remington and they were nice. They are sending a new bolt assembly which I like. Wish they had done better quality control. Will update when new part comes in.
