just because it didnt work for you doesnt mean it cant work for me right? i have a friend who couldnt go through a 10 rd clip with his ruger 10/22 w/out a jam. does that mean nobody should get a 10/22? i think you guys are being a little biased????

Jamming is just part of the problem with the 597. It is full of design flaws. The trigger mechanism is plastic and ball point pen springs. As far as I know there are no aftermarkets for it. The magazines also have a tendency to drop out of the gun at the wrong time. Read the reviews if you don't believe me. There are tons of them on this forum. BTW, when a 10/22 won't feed properly it is usually a matter of adjusting the magazine spring. Something you can't do with a 597. Biased, hell yeah I am biased. I like things that work and hate crap that doesn't.

hasnt happened to me yet. i just make sure the mag clicks when i put it in. i have already read the reviews and everyone says they are junk. my point is why would i go and get a ruger when the 597 was given to me for free and works flawlessly?

I like things that work and hate crap that doesn't.
same here thats why i love my 597, so far over 500 rounds through it easily and not a single problem yet. i can hit a golf ball from 65 yards with it. serves the purpose for me.

Well then consider yourself lucky. My 597 can't shoot more than two rounds without jamming. The problem seems to be in the magazine. The rounds are jamming in the magazine for me. I contacted Remington about it. They sounded like they were surprised to hear this bit of news! They also told me to send it in, with $35 and they would look at it. I informed them, this piece of crap wasn't worth spending any more money on. Oh well, live and learn I guess. Funny, Remington used to be known for good quality firearms, and great customer service. What has happened to them?[:-]

i cannot comment on their customer service. i have never had a problem with any of their guns yet. me and my dad both own 870s and they have both been flawless.

is Remington still not known for good quality shotguns and rifles minus the 597? everyone we hunt with for deer and pheasant all own the 870 lineup and have yet to have problems???

I just bought my wife a new 1100 last year. Fully rifled barrel with cantilever scope mount, for deer hunting. It is a great gun. But it used to be anything with Remington stamped on it was great. I don't know how the 700's are fairing these days either. I have not bought one sine 1996. But when I bought this 597 I was expecting a gun that would also be great. And I think it could be. It does shoot really good, when you can get a round chambered. And their attitude is basically, "we don't care." I used to own a 700 classic chambered in 220 swift. I was having a problem with the fireing pin. I sent it in, and they fixed it for free. And paid shipping both ways. Now, I have to pay to ship it to them (Fine with me) and send them $35 just for them to look at it. That is not fine with me. It is under warranty, why should I pay them to look at it. Good luck with yours.
