Easily one of the most advanced rimfire rifle ever built, the Model 597 represents the first technological breakthrough in the category in 35 years. This rifle has all the standard features that have made the originals an American favorite, but with some notable upgrades. Because the Model 597 action is the ultimate in feeding reliability and out-of-the-box accuracy, it was only natural Remington develop the Model 597 TVP (Target-Varmint Plinker) to take full advantage of the superior design. Truly the ultimate 22 target-rifle platform, this tack-driver features a 20" stainless heavy barrel and a rugged laminated thumbhole stock that's contoured to accommodate right- and left-handed shooters with equal comfort. The impeccable balance of our new stock design will shine the first time you try an offhand shot. Trust us, one squeeze of the trigger and you'll be a believer. Its receiver is equipped with a factory-mounted scope rail so you can add optics and be ready to shoot in a flash. New for 2012 these guns have 5R Rifling. This variant features a camo laminated stock.
