Single Shot Remington?



Log in to see fewer ads
Russian built by "Bakail?"

Saw one at a local pawn shop new at $279. in 3.62X39. Anyone have one in any caliber? Looks decent, above average trigger pull.

Allways thought I'd like something in that caliber other than AK copy or SKS. I'd think it would be a fun gun to tinker with reloading for.

I don't but a friend bought one several months ago. He couldn't get it to perform at all (5"-6" groups @ 100 yds). Finally sent it back to Remington. They supposedly worked on it (don't know what they did) & sent it back to him. No improvement at all. He sold it.

And this was with several different reloads, not cheap Russian ammo.

Not terribly encouraging! was he using .308, or .311 dia bullets?

Anyone else with experience?

I think they were all .308's. I know he tried 150's & 168's both.

The original specs for the Kalishnikoff (sp) was for a .311 bullet, as used in the old 7.62X54R cartridge. Ruger's Mini 30 supposidly uses a inbetween bore to allow it to accept either bullet diameter.

being built by Russikies makes it a real question which bore this arm has.

Well that's his problem. He should've used a .310-.311 diameter bullet around 123gr, maybe up to 150gr.

Yea the bore on the remingtons are only going to shoot the .311 diameter bullets, i have tried .308 in mine and it shot some pretty good patterns. Once I got my hands on some .311's i can get it down to about 2-3 inch groups at 100 yards with the iron sights.
