My Mountain Rifle is in-route to my local FFL.

Local Dealer Quote: Remington 547

My search for a Remington 547 Custom .22lr ... is on.

Contacted a local gun dealer in Odessa for a quote:
Quote:
I was waiting on Remington to get back to us.
This is a custom gun and they are quoting 1 to 2 year delivery on an ordered place now.
The current price is $1135,
but they will not guarantee that price for future shipments.

Thanks,

Picked-Up My Mountain Rifle Today

Al the Infidel,

I just picked-up my Mountain Rifle DM today in Odessa - 85 miles away.
And, I also took possession of a Larsen Recruit Rifle and a Legion Sobol.

Also, I took a side trip to Midland (109 miles away) to a gunshop by the name of the Between the Walls.
I ordered a Remington 547 .22lr for $1,057.

The 547 was not in-stock.
But, it is in-route from a distributor in Pennsylvania - I think.
The distributor has another 547 in .22 caliber in stock - if anyone else is interested.
BETWEEN THE WALLS
1704 N. Big Spring St.
Midland TX 79701
Phone: 432.687.4867
Fax: 432.682.6443
Website: None
My 547 should be in Midland in one week - I can't wait.

I digress, as you can tell ... I've been busy - no time for pictures.
Hopefully, tomorrow ... after I finish some honey dos
I'll be able to persuade my wife to take some pictures with her digital camera.

You don't fool around. Very nice, fond of the wood on the Legion Sobol too. Buy the wife dinner for some camera lessons.

Here are some pictures taken with the help of my reluctant photograher wife
and an assistant who had another agenda.

Sure looks familiar! Excellent. I hope it shoots as well as it looks. Could be the pix but it looks like they might be using a lighter stain. Mine is quite dark and you have to concentrate to see the grain at all when not in the sunlight.

Mountain Rifle Stock

Mine is quite dark and you have to concentrate to see the grain at all when not in the sunlight.
The pictures were taken outside under the patio cover in indirect sunlight.
Indoors, the stock does appear, somewhat, dark - darker than I would like.
But, the grain is easy to see under room lighting - fluorescent.

This is the only criticism (preference) I have of my Mountain Rifle.
Well ... other than the black rubber butt plate ...
should be red - with a black spacer.

I love my Mountain Rifle.
It is, even, more attractive
than the M77 Mark II Ultra Light .308 I used to own.
Plus, my rifle has a cheekpiece.
This was something the Ruger lacked and needed.

And, Yes ... I still hold a fondness for Ruger Ultralights.

I've spent sometime thinking about this next statement.
Given the choice between a purchasing a modest custom rifle
or the Remington Mountain Rifle DM.
I would be very hard pressed to justify the need for or cost of a moderately priced custom rifle.

And, considering ... I, still, would need a .22lr mate - enter the Remington 547 Custom.

How about a Kimber?
Thought about it ... But, since they're stopping production of the rimfire line,
the Kimber does not have a detachable box magazine,
lacks a black fore-end tip and are more expensive -
I didn't give Kimber anymore consideration.

Very nice rifle. I think they are great for the price. I have 700 CDL in .243 Win. which was a replacement for the 700 classic I had in that caliber. It looks much like the Mountain rifle, but with a standard weight barrel.

I want a Rem 547, but not sure I can justify it, especially the wait. I would sure like to have a CZ 452 FS, but can't make up my mind on caliber. I really like to shoot my .22 mag American, but the .22lr is lots cheaper and not as noisy (have to give my neighbors some consideration).

Anyway, post pictures of that 547 when you get it. Give us a good review as well. You are lucky to be able to get one.

My 547 CLASSIC 22LR

Quote:

Just got home with my new 547.
My wife has a doctors appointment in Odessa.
So, I took the day-off the accompany her and to pick-up my 547.
The side trip to Midland involved a 109 mile drive ... one way.

Now that I'm home, I'm excited ... and, tired - been up since 1345 ... yesterday.
As such, I don't have the time or inclination to take pictures and post them.
And, more importantly, my wife is exhausted from the trip -
she will take the pictures when she has rested a little.

Right now, I have my Mountain Rifle and the 547 Classic side-by-side ... making comparisons.
The rifle case is labeled as the 547 CLASSIC .22LR - not 547 Custom.

The 547 looks like a full-size rifle.
But, in my hands it feels light and small - noticeably lighter and smaller than my Mountain Rifle.
However, the 547 is muzzle heavy and the outside diameter
at the muzzle is greater than my 260 REM.
While the Mountain Rifle is more evenly balanced.

While checking the length of pull(s), I also noticed the 547 has a shorter pull.

The 547 trigger guard and magazine are made of plastic.

The finish of the barrel and action is deep, bright and glossy black ... not blue.
Almost like a powdercoat.
The bolt cap finish is not as deep and does show blue - dark blue.

The stock shows some figuring and, if the rifle is held at the right angle,
some faint water marks are seen.
The 547 stock finish is semi-glossy compared to the lusterless, stain finish of the Mountain Rifle stock.
A nice looking stock - not as plain jane as I had expected.

The checking is very nicely done.
However, the pistol grip checkering panels have a dark appearance.
When the rifle is held at an angle, the checkering appears to black-out - odd.

As soon as I get some time and my wife is willing to take pictures ... I'll post images.
Right now, I need to get some sleep.

Oh, by the way, my test target was fired at 100 yards
and measures an honest 7/8 of an inch, center-to-center, extreme spread.
I will post the target when I can.

I hope it shoots good when you get it rigged up. They are beautiful rifles. I put a 541-T on layaway last week. I have never owned a "T", so I'm going to be making some comparisons.

Added: My 547 just says MODEL 547 on the receiver and Remington Custom Shop on the barrel. The manual says 547 Classic.
