I had an uncle who recently passed away and my dad has been giving his guns to family members. I got my pick of several and I chose an old Rem Model 514. I grew up hunting so I'm no stranger to guns but I don't know much about specific models. I checked out the date codes and this particular one was made in 1955. But that's about all I know.

Are these good-shooting rifles? I've always wanted a bolt-action .22. I read somewhere that 514's often have extractor problems. I just got it today so I haven't had a chance to test it out yet. It really needs a good cleaning first anyway. The blueing is a thing of the past and the stock has a dime-sized chunk out of the bottom of the grip area. But I like it.

But anyway, how are they overall?
