#4064 need help finding a cocking piece for my 591 bolt

Posted by JFK52 on 15 January 2016 - 01:53 PM

Numrich has the entire striker assembly of which the cocking piece is one part. I bought the complete 591 striker assembly for $38.00. A lot more expensive than the cocking piece which sells for $6.60. Only no one has the cocking piece in stock. Since my 591 is my daily varmint rifle, I am glad to get in back into service when the parts arrive from Numrich.

#4106 Interest level in new plastic magazines?

Posted by Gary W on 13 February 2016 - 11:18 AM

I apologize, I meant one of those copy machines that makes plastic parts. I know nothing about them but have heard that they work pretty good and are coming down in price. The guy said you can apply a hardener for extra strength.

#3377 Bolt installation tip--eliminate the aggravation...

Posted by Issa Akhbar on 26 March 2013 - 08:29 AM

Most already know this, and I'm really not trying to be a smart-onager, but for those still fighting with the aggravating tendency of the bolt head to roll over when installing it in the receiver....just point the bolt straight down, align the slots, hold the rifle muzzle straight down also, then slide the bolt into the receiver. The bolt head can't roll over if gravity is working for you instead of against you... :D

#2313 Here's my 591

Posted by autoknife on 11 March 2012 - 12:34 PM

Picked this up years ago at a local gun show for a song. I love the wood and finish and that it doesn't have a mark on it. To be honest I don't think it has ever been fired so I need to find a beater I can shoot.

#2298 damage from my 5mm

Posted by Matt5MM on 03 March 2012 - 07:32 AM

The scope I am using is a Nikon Scope Prostaff 3-9X40. I know its a center fire Riflescope but I went through about 6 differnt scopes before I just slapped on this one. BSA, Bushnell, Leupold and other Rimfire scopes just didn't get the grouping I was looking for. I had this as a back-up for my 7MM and just got so frustrated that I just put it on one day and took it to the range and low and behold I was shooting 1/4" 5 shot groups at 75 and 100 yards. Funny thing is that I won 50 bucks that day from a guy shooting a 17hmr. He asked me what I was shooting, afterwards he started poking fun at my 5MM (He had never heard of it). We shot two 5 shot groups one at 75 other at 100 yards and the tightest group would win the money. He was shooting a Ruger 77 with Elite 3200 on it. I smoked him. I knew then this scope was the one.

Hello all! Wheelgun here. Living in the Upstate of SC and purchased my 5mm model 591 this past summer. Haven't shot it a lot yet, but did a trigger job on it and really made a difference. Looking forward to shooting it some more with both available ammo types and seeing what's the best. Thanks for letting me join. Looking forward to it!

#4257 Possible good news

Posted by tuny on 04 March 2018 - 05:26 AM

Got an email response from the producers of the 5MM ammo according to them they will have a MAJOR announcement latter this year about their production of 5MM ammo for 2018, I know we heard this before, but maybe if more people ask about the ammo they might actually move on it this year.

#4170 Hello the camp

Posted by Jimsdad on 05 May 2016 - 02:29 PM

Hi to all.  I am a new member and a fan of the 5 mm rim fire.  I have owned one for about 3 years now and have found it to be the perfect shoot and scoot woodchuck rifle.  For longer range woodchuck shooting I typically use a 722 .222, also a favorite but much heavier than the 581.  I hope to contribute to this forum and I know I will learn a lot from reading and listening.

#4132 5mm Rimfire Shooters - Please Take This Survey and Email Aguila

Posted by Magnum on 28 February 2016 - 05:35 AM

I know beggers can't be choosers, BUT... how much I would buy would be dependent on how good it is. I don't consider the 5mm a plinking round, but more of a varmint round where consistency matters. Therefore, I'm hoping that the QC is there and not just a desire to fill an order, as I've been seeing happen in some 22 ammo.

The fact that they are advertising new rounds definitely creates excitement and makes one think there's some care/thought/testing being put into it. FWIW, I would be prone to buying a lot more if it really performed (and I did fill out the survey, but maybe should've upped my numbers to a best case scenario).

#3842 It's about time!

Posted by Magnum on 05 July 2014 - 04:29 PM

Finally put this thing back together. Couldn't get the stock finish I wanted. Not 100% satisfied, but I can live with it for now or at least until I put a few more rounds through it.

Cerakoated the steel, Timney trigger, BKL mount, old Redfield 3-9x widefield scope and refinished the stock.

Now to get out and shoot!

#3757 591 ready for testing

Posted by chsparkman on 04 March 2014 - 01:42 PM

Here is a picture of my Remingtons:

On the left is my 591M with the new finish. I used a product called Arrow finish (Google takes you to several sources) that I bought at a gun show. It was a lot more work than should have been necessary but I like the results. However, I would rather work with Tru-Oil. The 592M was done with Tru-Oil but I didn't fill the wood first so it's kind of rough. It has the nicest wood of any of my guns. The 581 has a walnut stock that I bought on Gunbroker. I refinished the mahogany stock on the 582, but the 580 has the original factory finish, as I got it in 1973 on my 13th birthday. It could use a refinishing but the nostalgia keeps me from doing it.

#3578 591 Magazines

Posted by reelman1 on 13 September 2013 - 07:24 PM

I am thinking a pvc prototyping printer may be the way for someone who has one, to scan a mag, and then start printing them. Just a thought I am thinking the aluminum ones were pretty much pie in the sky at retail anyway.

#3533 Lead bullets in the 5mm Mag

Posted by Gary W on 12 July 2013 - 07:41 PM

Lil Gun with a 32 grain bullet and a non magnum primer.
Moly is a lube but I keep it out of my rifles these days. If it works for you......~

Yes the moly is wonderful, well a 30 grain moly coated lead bullet at 2680 fps with 6.7 gr of #9 (in January) gave me the best accuracy of anything I have ever loaded or shot in the 5mm (both RF and CF)

How many grains of lilgun you use with the 32??? I was speaking about lead bullets and your 32s may be but makes me wonder if you are speaking about jacketed bullets… that is awesome velocity and I don’t get anywhere near that with any powder bullet combo (32 gr v-max and 26 gr VGs) (powders were Enforcer - AA#9 – lilgun - 2200 – h-110 and power pistol),

But I also heard there is a big difference in lead… mine was all melted tire weights… I must have been very lucky for everything to work as it did but then being told about the leading up at that velocity and how hard it is to clean scared me off… that is until I got the itch for plinking rounds…

Quick Load showed me a velocity of up to 2862 fps with the 32 gr v-max but in real life I could only get a max velocity 2200 with 7.3 grs of powder and accuracy was only so-so.

Even though this thread is about the lead bullets and I would like to learn more about them I am also highly interested in your load. I would appreciate any help you could provide in helping me obtain that velocity and accuracy too…

I know that we keep promising but we really will have new magazines this spring. I can't say exactly when but was up at the shop that is building them and we resolve the problems they were having so we are moving forward, ever so slowly.

#3037 Largest game taken with 5mm?

Posted by reelman1 on 07 January 2013 - 05:00 PM

Beowulf is more better for piggies. Realize it's the other end of 5, but still. Well known writer made the brag[(?)my take on an idiot] a few years ago that more deer had been moonlighted and taken during the day with headshots from a .22lr than any other caliber.
