We looked at a new Target model Remington 597 today with the laminated thumbhole stock. Barrel was free floated, bull barrel. Carbon Fiber "look".

Price was right and LOVED the feel of the stock.

How Accurate are these?? We have one 597 that reliabilty has been a problem due to magazines.

The laminate stocks are Boyd's IIRC and are nice. Other than that, you've already experienced the world of the 597. They don't do anything better than a 10/22 and they cost more.

My 597 HBLS is as accurate, if not more, than my 10/22s with various heavy barrels. I don't think that there is a 10/22 that will shoot as well as my 597 for what it cost me, which was $300 with a nice scope.

I disagree. When comparing base models of the 10/22 and Rem 597, you can get the 597 for about $30-$40 cheaper.

just get latest model mags, take action apart, pull out the guide rails, and then put them back in , only finger tight, and just back in far enough, to put it all back together.
this is the fix for all 597's.
