WOW! The difference is night and day. The best improvement I’ve done to this rifle bar none. As I adjusted to the trigger it became great fun to shoot out the dime sized center of the target.
@Festus Nice looking 597 Richard.
@Don68 I concur, wholeheartedly.
Nice! I like that stock. My son bought a 597 and not to be outdone by him I bought one. I install something for the trigger and I think a new ejector for him last Christmas. Mine has nothing done to it yet so I might need to check this MCarbo upgrade out.
When I picked mine up from the ffl the first thing was the bolt handle cane off. Yesterday while looking for answers to some of my questions I ran across a thread about a guy on FB who makes them and now have two on order.
Great place here, but it’s draining my wallet! Lol
Thanks gentlemen. Nothing beats a good shooting .22lr for an inexpensive day at the range. I haven’t done much to enhance this other than a Weaver scope base, Volquartsen extractor, of course the M*CARBO Trigger Pro Kit, and the Boyd’s Varmint stock in Dark Walnut. About that stock, I ordered it finished. And didn’t care for it at all so I stripped it and gave it a couple coats of boiled linseed oil. Medium rise UTG QD rings, 6X24X50 scope, bipod and the required USGI .30 Carbine sling.
Well, as @Glwenzl said, I like it! That’s what first caught my eye, both the design of it (looks very ergonomic) as well as the wood grain and finish. Good on ya.
Great little shooters, you’ll enjoy it. The two best upgrades IMHO are MCarbo Pro Kit and Volquartsen extractor
A tip, the two set screws for the guide rods, run them in to “touching” then back out about an eighth turn.
I installed the Volquartsen extractor, what a difference! Planning on doing the trigger and spring kit upgrade
I agree. When installing 597 Trigger improvement kit, put a small drop of oil on pin where it contacts metal spacers, I used RemOil… Really smooth trigger function results.
