597 is a strange gu indeed!

514 3
a priori,I like the feel of my 597 ss lam,I like the way the recoil(not much in a 22 I agree) bounces straight back,its reliable with the original nylon clip(not with a new one -more on this) but it aways sends the first shot high. The rest of the shots group about like my 10/22. I realize that I'm the variable,maual loading first round vs blowback loading the rest. It does the same with cci.winchester power pt,and golden bullets so I don't think its ammo. Should I first fire a warning shot at a squirrel before drilling him ha ha. Plse advise

Don't ride the bolt foward when loading your first round. Pull the handle back and let it slam home just as if it was firing the round. This is a practice that should be done with all self loaders from my old Winchester 1400 shot gun to the A2 I shoot at work. Many .22 semis if not most will do this.
