597 WMR HAMMER - M*CARBO or Volquartsen? Also extractor question.



Log in to see fewer ads
Both M*CARBO and TendemKross are having sales this weekend.

I'd like to get a hammer for my 597 22WMR Heavy Barrel and they both have them.

The M*Carbo is cheaper, and says a 60% reduction in trigger pull. The Volquartsen has name recognition and looks better, but claims a 50% trigger pull reduction and is more expensive.

https://www.mcarbo.com/remington-597-pro-a2-hammer.aspx

https://www.tandemkross.com/Volquart...597_p_262.html

Any thoughts or experience?

Also - anyone know if the extractors are the same for 22LR and 22WMR? Both companies sell an upgraded extractor, but neither is marked for caliber.

Thanks for looking.

I have a VQ hammer and the M*CARBO spring kit in my 597 and the trigger pull in now around 2-2.5 lb range. I would have bought the M*CARBO hammer, but they did not have one 3 years ago. Just my .02 worth but the hammer is hidden, only you will know what's inside.

The extractors for the lr and Mag are the same. Get the VQ extractor as the Rem ones are made of inferior steel.
I'd try the MCARBO as I have several VQ hammers with one being a 4# pull and the rest none below 3#. JMO

Thanks for the input.

Cheapness/frugality won out - I got the MCarbo. Their complete "pro" hammer and spring kit wound up being over $20 less than the VQ plus free shipping.

If I bought all the 597 parts from TandemKross, it would be I think $95.00 plus shipping, and their sale was $10 off $100.

I'm going to hold off on the extractor for now. If I need one, I'll look at the VQ

If it isn't broke why fix it. The extractor availability has always been there.
