This was my reply from Remington regarding chambers:
Response (Daniel) - 06/17/2009 09:14 AM
Richard,

I was not able to find any specific reference to when or if the 541-T's were specifically cut with target chambers in any of our record files. This would lead me to believe that they were not, as production guns cutting a match chamber is a daunting prospect because once a match chamber is cut, shooting of cheap ammo is nearly impossible due to the extremely tight tolerances of the chamber, and the extrememly loose tolerances of the ammo.

Customer (Richard Jura) - 06/08/2009 07:58 PM
Any word on this?
Hello
I have 2 541's one being a 541T without the heavy barrel and the other a 541X. I've searched the web and I get various answers as to whether or not they have 'match chambers'. Did the 541 series of rifles ever come from Remington with a match chamber? If they did how can one tell if your rifle
does.

Thank You
Richard Jura

I have a 541S, 1973 model with 1 action screw, a 541T sporter barrel, 1986 model with 1 action screw, and a 1992 model 541THB with 2 action screws. All 3 have the same factory 3 screw trigger. Have looked at a lot of these guns over the years and haven't seen any sporter barrel guns with more than 1 action screw, at least not factory. All of the HB's have had 2. As far as what type chambers were used, Brian Voelker would be the man to ask.

Not all HB models have 2 screws. I have a '93 model that only has one. Which is about to be remedied shortly

I only meant the ones that I've seen. I'm sure they made them both ways.

Not to "hijack" the thread but what are the thoughts on float or not to float a sporter 541T?

I have a 541S that still has only 1 action screw. I saw immediate improvement after re-bedding the action and free floating the barrel.

Of course, as it was it had an insane amount of upward pressure on the barrel, so it was in no way a poster child for a properly bedded sporter.

I have two of these rifles. One is the sporter wt. barrel which definitely has a match chamber, and the other is the HB version with standard chamber. Both were bought new many years ago. The sporter barrel gun is the most accurate .22 I have ever owned.

rogbn,
Are the barrels on your rifles marked .22 Long Rifle, or are they marled .22 Short, Long, Long Rifle??
