Cool My New Remington 597 in AA597R Tactical Stock

Wow! I haven't bee on here for months, since last year even!

Anyways,

I recently sold my Ruger 10/22 and my slightly damaged Pietta 1873 single action army (.22lr 10 shot). I got $400 Canadian, profit from it.

I sold the revolver because I barely used it, so it wasn't worth fixing it.

I sold the Ruger 10/22 because the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RMCP) decided that since the charger pistol can use the same magazine, all Ruger 10/22 magazines are limited to 10 round max, as that is the limit for handguns. Stupid, but unfortunately a reality here.

I went on the search for a good semi-auto 22lr, which comes looking like an AR-15 ish gun, or can be made to look like one with an aftermarket stock.

I was considering guns like the M&P 15 22, and the Chiappa mfour, but those are both classified as restricted here, and therefore 10 rounds per mag max too.

I wanted something with no mag restrictions that has large capacity mags available for it.

I ended up buying a Remington 597, in the AA597R Archangel aftermarket stock, brand new from a store which offers free shipping for orders over $200, which with the $429.99 rifle, and the $94.99 red dot I bought, was most definitely over $200.

I also just recently got in two 30 round magazines for it. Pro Mag also makes a 70 round drum mag for it, but it costs $159 here, I got the two 30 round mags for a total of being able to hold 60 rounds, for around $100 less.

I am very happy with it, the stock is very sturdy, honestly, to break it, you'd have to be purposely trying to break it.

Here are some gun porn photos I took of it.















Enjoy!

And a bayonet too! Looks like you have it all Twiggy. Here's hoping it shoots like the 597's accuracy we are used to.

Would a permanently attached bayonet "muzzle device" count in meeting the 16" barrel requirement?
