Its the best I could do. You can't see the front swivel too well, but its there. and the bolt is black although you might not be able to see it. I'll try and get some better pics.

Heres my 597 wearing its brand new Boyds stock. The folks at DM were great to deal with.

finally

I got some good pictures of the 597, and a few of the range. All of the shots including the can are five shot groups.

The "Range" In case your wondering it's just over 200 feet to the targets...I think


"Range" closeup


The target on the left is supported standing, on right off-hand


First shots today, I think the top left one was a first round flyer, or the result of the bullet going down a cold (30 degrees) barrel. They are form a supported standing position.


These are from off-hand, same distance




You all might be wondering about the can, it was the same distance and from off-hand. The reason is it makes a great target for practicing for groundhogs. They don't come out till spring, but the can is about as big as the head/neck area of a G-hog and makes for good practice. The hogs are a huge nuisance on the farm, cows step in the holes they dig and break their legs. But they make for great shooting!

That is so beautiful it can make a grown man cry! How was your stock when fitting it on? Was it truly a drop in part like they say or did yours require some tooling to get it right? I have their site bookmarked so that I can buy from them sometime. You and AL are the only ones to my knowledge whom have bought from them.

It was an easy install. took about an hour. I had to make 2 spacers, to place where the bolts fit up in the stock, or else the bolts would bottom out. The barrel and action fits snug in the stock, but I think floating the barrel would be a breeze with a dowel, sand paper and some patience.

I think Remington has bolt spacers available as a kit. Its not easy to get some stuff up here in Canada.

Spacers cost $2.50 a piece but the shipping is $10 which I believe is a minimum fee. Not positive but I don't think any of the stocks came with spacers. My 2 didn't plus quite few others didn't also. Couple of black washers will take care of it.
Looks great Poolman.

this is a 597 that i got from a pawn shop, it had a broken grey stock on it and a damaged barrel tip, i had a really nice stock
that had been opened up too much for a 700 bdl and they cracked it right in the middle. so i cut it in half and fitted it
to the rear receiver with a stud i added. and i added a stud to the barrel to attatch the foregrip.
i polished the barrel but due to its being tweaked i had to remove alot of it only leaving 11 inches of barrel.
to be legal you must have 16' so i made a long flash hider to give it some length now it is at 16-1/4"
it also has a vq extractor and hammer. i have a crap camera so the pics dont do it justice.
it does have all the feeding problems common to 597 unless i shoot cci stingers, with them i have never
not once had a ftf or stovepipe ever,ever.

Here's my poodle shooter. Rem 597 LS Magnum. 17 HMR. Nikon 4.5x14 mil dot AO on top. Polished guide rods. Free floated barrel, bedded action, overtravel screw. Waiting on hammer and extractor from VQ. Not that it really needs it, but what the hell.

That's a real classic. Always loved those rifles but have never had an opportunity to buy one. A friend has a lightweight in .308 but have never been able to talk him into selling it to me. Maybe someday I'll find one in good condition.
