Hey Guys!

Been away for a while,
I was able to take the 597 out and run it through its paces. I performed all the tweaks that were recommended throught the various post and man! let me tell ya! Well...see for your self.








The trigger has been stoned down to 2.5 lbs. no other mods. I have been through 12 different types of ammo and have (for now) settled on the Eley Target with a 12 group (5rds each) average of .743". I found it interesting that all winchester ammo was at least 2 std. off of the mark.

thanks again everyone!

SE Arkansas 597

Here's mine:



Painted the stock with Rust-O-leum textured paint in "Desert Bisque"

Installed front sling stud and mounted Stoney Point 9-13" bipod

Remington Weaver base on rifle.

Scope is a Wally World special -- Centerpoint 4-16x40AO scope with red/green lighted reticle. Chinese, but initial thoughts are that it's pretty decent. We'll see how it holds up. Rings came with scope -- pretty fair setup.

I got the rifle for $25, the seller thought the magazine release was broken -- it wasn't, it just needed to be reassembled in the trigger assembly.

In total, I've got about $160 in this rig. And it's a pretty fair shooter, to boot!

I like that scope! How much did it set you back if you don't mind my asking.

It's totally stock, but it needs a VQ hammer and a better scope. The one I've got on it now works great for a free scope (buddy had it bangin around in his toolbox on his truck for a couple weeks haha), but I need one with an adjustable objective that actually holds zero.

My tool with the tool box 597's are the best accurate, reliable and they actualy feel as if your holding when you put it up to your shoulder.

Thumbs up Finally got around to a couple of pix:

I really need to get the rest of the parts on the 597, i.e., the new extractor and get the bolt rails adjusted per the specs here on the forum. Then I can try the new magazines.
Anyway, the 597 & 10/22 together, and a couple of other pix:







The other end of the spectrum --- Remington 7400 Carbine/ .30-06 with Bell&Carlson stock; stock pouch and Harris bipod adapter. This one is getting the sights re-installed; the Harris bipod added; and a new EGW Picatinny mount & Warne Maxima rings put on. Kept clean, it is 2" or less accurate at 100-yds. and never had a malfunction!
