Just placed an order for the new Picatinny rail for the 597 and are excited to have it.
The last order I placed where the Trigger job Pro-Kit upgrade. I where very very happy with that upgrade as it made the rifle almost feel like a brand new one. The handling and the smoothness made it so much more fun to shoot as it also made me more accurate.
Now I see forward to the rail, and how it will make my favorite .22 lr rifle shine even more
Now, have anyone here bought it and tested it out already? Anyone that can tell me what to excpect?
16 long days of waiting is over. I have finally got my Picatinny rail from Mcarbo yesterday, and today I mounted it.
The fit where OUTSTANDING, it just fitted perfectly thight, smooth and not even a tiny little bit of wiggle there. I send along some pics and maybe maybe I will be able to edit together a movie as I filmed when I opened and mounted it. But it may be too long sequence of film, and hard to edit. Time will tell. but you all have some pics here now. From me I send a HUGE thanks to MCARBO for this product!
The charge handle I actually found here, on the very forum we are on now. There is a thread about the weak original charging handle on the 597, and there are a guy who makes new better ones. He also makes an extended magazine release so I orded one of thos aswell. Look closely at the first pic in my post and you will see the extended mag relase
The guy goes under the name “Remington man Dave” on facebook and I give you the link to his facebook here:
He make these handles very very nice, and he whee really helpful with all the ordering and shipping, eventhough I live in Sweden he shipped and posted it and helped out with everything. Go and have a look there. I have posted on his page
Hope this will help you!
You are welcome! I have got very much help here myself so I just pass it along
I wanted to make an update and post some pics with my new scope I bought and mounted yesterday. To my big surprise the picatinny rail, where so perfectly made so when I mounted the scope, after I had checked it where zeroed from the factory using the mirror method it where just a few clicks away when I cheded it with my laser boresight.
Amazing!!! This means I have full range on my adjustment both up and down, left and right from start How cool isn´t that?
Thanks Mcarbo for this!!
Thanks! I also think it looks nice, but the best part it is that the rifle feels so much better and shoots as good as I ever hoped for. It is way more accurate than I am haha, so I am the limit there now.
I also have swapped out the scope, and put a really good one on to ot.
Athlon NEOS 6-18X44 and this scope is clear as a day, sharp as a pin and a really good eye-relief on.
Here are some new pic, and I also cold-blue the bolthandle from Remington Man Dave
