Recently purchased this 22 to replace my Marlin. Great shooting weapon, very accurate, smooth operation. This is the 5th weapon ordered using Buds Gun shop. I have to say never any problems regardless what state I order from or to. Even when ordering on line and picking up in Lexington.

Buds is awesome. Ordered gun and it arrived at FFL in no time. Gun was in good condition. Took it to the range after the initial cleaning. This is a nice shooting gun. I like it better than the 10 22. Don't let the rugers fool you. The quality of the 597 build was better than the 10 22. Lots of machining marks on the bolt and I like the barrel retention on the 597 better than the 10 22. No barrel droop.The 597 shoots very reliably. Especially with the mags I bought from

Love it! Tuned it up with the Volquartsen 597 hammer and extractor. Works like greased lightning! Feeds anything through it and I have shot four different types of ammo at one sitting without failure to feed or extract. Super accurate at 50 yds with a 3-9x32 scope.

I\'ve put about 250 rounds through this rifle. The 10-round magazine has worked flawlessly. It had one failure to feed when my buddy was shooting it, but it turned out to be operator error because he didn\'t seat the magazine until it clicked all the way in. Keep in mind that there is very little aftermarket support for this rifle and what is there isn\'t very good. The 30-round magazines made by Remington are garbage. The one I bought doesn\'t even feed more than three consecutive rounds. The 22-round Pro-Mags are okay, but they have occasional feeding issues as well. The main reason that this rifle is getting 4/5 is because of the extractor setup. The extractor is actually broken into two separate parts Remington calls an injector and an extractor. I cleaned it once before taking it to the range and then once again after I got it home. The first time I didn\'t notice anything wrong, but the second time I noticed the tension spring on the \"injector\" had become slightly unwound. I loaded up a 10 round mag and cycled them all through by working the action and they all chambered and ejected fine, but I\'ll have to get it to the range so I can fire it to see if it still works well. Overall it\'s a fun 22LR rifle, and at $160, you can\'t really beat it.

Took several weeks for this gun to ship from Buds. Not that big of a deal. I still received it before Christmas. It was a gift for my son. Anyway,after inspecting at my FFL dealer. I noticed that the barrel was kind of wobbly right out of the box. I should have not walked away with it,but it was nearly Christmas and I doubt I would have gotten a replacement before Christmas being as they are sold out of this make/model on Budsguns. so, I take it home and take the receiver off the stock and noticed that the bolt was loose that holds the barrel on the receiver. I also noticed that the receiver housing near where the bolt attaches the receiver to the barrel was cracked. So, I try and tighten up the screw to to snug up the barrel and it breaks off. The receiver housing appears to a low grade "pot" metal. Now im in the process of getting this thing replaced which im fairly certain will not be alot of fun. This is the 6th gun ive purchased from buds and have not had a single hiccup until now. I would reccomend if you want a are looking to purchase a QUALITY 22 semi auto, go with the Ruger 10/22.
