Madison, NC – Well established in the world of 22 rimfire rifles, the Model 597 line of autoloading rimfires adds a new member to the family – the Model 597 VTR™ (Varmint Target Rifle) in five performance-enhanced versions including an offering with the most advanced concealment system – A-TACS™. With features derived from Remington’s platform of R-15 and R-25 modular repeating rifles, these heavy-barreled 22 LR carbines combine the fun of shooting a rimfire rifle with the attitude of a centerfire rifle.
With its innovative design, the Model 597 platform 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 feature an exclusive nickel-Teflon® plating for smooth, dependable operation and an ultra-crisp trigger pull. To assure reliable, long-term accuracy, a permanent rigid barrel attachment clamp is incorporated for positive lock-up.
Building on the core design and performance features of the Model 597, the VTR offerings come equipped with target-style, free-floating 16-inch heavy-contour clean barrels, constructed of carbon steel with non-reflective black oxide finish. Utilizing a Remington-designed aluminum bolt-on kit, this rimfire’s receiver is converted to a modular-style that accepts the standard synthetic A2 pistol grip and A2 stock or Pardus collapsible stock; fore-end tube; and 1913 Picatinny rail system for ease of mounting optics or accessories. A low-profile, 10-round magazine (or optional 30-round magazine); butt stock and fore-end tube swivel studs; and distinctive 597 VTR logo on side plates complete this next generation semi-auto carbine. All versions of the Model 597 VTR are compatible with Remington 30-round Model 597 magazines.
Model 597 VTR CS (Collapsible Stock) A-TACS – This featured-packed, camouflaged version has an ergonomically-designed Pardus collapsible stock, constructed of lightweight, fiber-reinforced Zytel®. The integrated slots and multiple buffer tube positions on the stock assembly allow for length of pull (LOP) customization and adjustable sling attachment. The stock, fore-end tube, grip, receiver and rail are fully covered with the new ground-breaking Advanced Tactical Concealment System (A-TACS) pattern. A 10-round magazine is included.
Suggested retail price: $590
Model 597 VTR CS (Collapsible Stock) Quad Rail – The addition of a versatile Quad Rail provides four multi-functional Picatinny rails; perfect for attaching lasers, flashlights, vertical fore grips, bipods, flip-up sights and optics.
