Looks like another big black eye for Remmy. I wonder what in the world is going on over there. I can remember a time when they wouldn't have gone to market with second or third rate junk. Kind of makes you wonder about the quality of all of their current products.

Just out of curiosity, if it is the worst piece of junk out there, then it must have a whole bunch of very serious defects, because I have seen some really bad stuff out there. What are all of the defects?
Pick any part from the butt plate to the muzzle! I have found nothing good in my 597! Since its mostly plastic, at least it won't rust much as a troutline anchor!

Funny, I had a different experience with my 597- its the only rifle I own that has ever rusted and some of my rifles are well over 100 years old.[:@]
Worst piece of crap I've ever seen.
