Remington Introduces New Model 597™ Rifles – Guaranteed to Stand Out in the Field

Madison, N.C. – Over the past decade, the Remington® Model 597 has become one of the most popular semi-automatic rimfire rifles available. Hunters and shooters of all ages enjoy the Model 597 for its superior accuracy and fast shooting, semi-auto reliability. With more women and younger shooters venturing to the range, the Model 597 is sure to gain their approval with the addition of two unique versions featuring Mossy Oak Blaze™ Orange Camo and Mossy Oak Blaze Pink Camo synthetic stocks.

Upon first glance, the new Mossy Oak Blaze Orange Camo and Mossy Oak Pink Camo Model 597s remind us of how much fun rimfire shooting can be. Both models feature 20", matte finish, standard-contour carbon steel barrels and are chambered in 22 long rifle for years of inexpensive shooting. This complete eye-catching package is topped off with TRUGLO® fiber optic rifle sights for fast and precise target acquisition.

The Model 597 is easily the most advanced autoloading rimfire rifle ever built. The difference starts with our proprietary bolt-guidance system, which features a unique set of twin tool-steel guide rails for better stability, feeding reliability and greater out-of-the-box accuracy. The bolt, hammer and sear of the Model 597 all feature an exclusive nickel-Teflon® plating for smooth, dependable operation and an ultra-crisp trigger pull. To assure reliable, long-term accuracy, we’ve also incorporated a unique positive-locking, permanently rigid barrel attachment clamp. Receivers are grooved for standard rimfire mounts and drilled/tapped for the pre-mounted Weaver-style base. Completing the breakthrough design are an innovative last-shot “hold open” magazine feature and our patented, easy-to-use staggered-stack 10 round magazine box.
