The Model 597 is easily the most technologically advanced autoloading rimfire rifle on the market today. The difference starts with our proprietary bolt-guidance system, which features a unique set of twin tool-grade steel guide rails for silky-smooth functioning, fast feeding reliability, and perfect bolt alignment on lock-up for excellent out-of-the-box accuracy.
To assure reliable, long-life accuracy, we’ve also incorporated a unique positive-locking, permanently rigid barrel attachment clamp. The bolt, hammer and sear of the Model 597 all feature an exclusive nickel-Teflon® plating for a smooth, dependable operation and ultra-crisp trigger pull (that stays that way). Completing the breakthrough design is an innovative last-shot bolt “hold open” feature and our patented, easy-to-use staggered-stack detachable 10-round box magazine.
For those who want ultimate accuracy in an autoloading rimfire rifle, Model 597 HB Black Synthetic Scope Combo has a 0.825-inch diameter, 20-inch carbon-steel heavy barrel furnished clean with no sights set in a rugged black synthetic stock with a beaver tail fore-end. The matching alloy receiver is grooved for standard rimfire mounts and drilled and tapped for the Model 597 Weaver-style one-piece base.
