  •  I think you mentioned you have a 597............. (6+ / 0-)

    I keep hearing about after market parts for customizing the 597 like you can do with the Ruger 10/22.  I can't find anything online... any idea where I can?

    The "homosexual agenda" is actually a GOP strategy for denying rights to gay men and women.

    •  There is really little for the Remington 597. (4+ / 0-)

      There is a kit to make it look militant--all black parts, but still plastic--it runs around 200 dollars.

      There is a 30 round bananna clip that holds 26 if you squeeze really hard.

      And, there is a muzzle brake that looks kinda cool but does nothing special.

      I've looked for custom stocks and there are quite a number for the 597, but they are too expensive for a 150 dollar rifle.

      Overall, I'm impressed with the 597.  It shoots really well after you adjust the sights properly.

      I bought it for my girlfriend and she shot really tight group the first time out with no experience.

      I've shot the Ruger also...it may be more customizable, but the 597 is a nicer rifle.

      •  I like the Remington better than the 10/22....... (3+ / 0-)

        The 10/22 just feels small to me.  I'd like to do a custom 10/22 but the 597 is what I have.  I have the .22 and .22 mag.
