Well established in the world of 22 rimfire rifles, the Model 597 family of autoloading rimfires adds full-featured, AR-style versions to its line-up, the Model 597 VTR (Varmint Target Rifle) 22LR in two distinctive configurations. With performance-enhancing features derived from Remington’s platform of R-15 and R-25 modular repeating rifles, these heavy barreled, tack-driving carbines will be offered through Gander Mountain® retailers and available nationwide to dealer network through Ellett Brothers.

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.

The Remington Model 597 is a semi-automatic rimfire rifle chambered for the .22 Long Rifle, .22 WMR and .17 HMR cartridges. The .22 Long Rifle version has a removable 10-round magazine, while the magazines for the larger .22 WMR and .17 HMR cartridges hold 8 rounds. The standard and WMR versions have been in production since 1997, and the .17 HMR version since 2003. The unique bolt-guidance system uses two steel guide rails. The 597 is built in Remington's Mayfield, Kentucky plant.
