#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.

Mrs Eagle and I would like to wish everyone a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

For those that will be at the SHOT Show, please stop by the Centurion Booth, I heard from Santa's elves last night that there will be a 5MM surprise there for you to look at.

#585 Is everyone elses trigger crummy?

Posted by 5MMEagle on 10 August 2010 - 02:14 PM

The trick is the the bolt head rail has to fit through a notch on the magazine retainer or tube assembly.  I align the right hand extractor with the bolt handle,close my left eye, stick my tongue in the corner of my cheek and easy that baby home while pushing forward on the safety.  If the bolt head rolls ,then start over and put your tongue in the other cheek.  It works everytime except when I go to show someone how to do it. ;D  Put then it is hard to talk when you got your tongue all tied up doin' detail work.


#4149 Bolt handle came off my 591...

Posted by 5MMEagle on 17 March 2016 - 11:02 AM

In the past, I have TIG welded these back on after protecting the bolt and inner threads with heat past and an aluminum heat sink.  I then clean the threads up with a tap and you are better off than you were before, any gunsmith should be able to fix this for you.  If you don't have one close then talk to your local welding shop.  You will need to cleanup the weld so that the bolt will fit into the action and the camming action still works.

That's sad about your 5s being stolen. I have a handgun version. It's been a joy to shoot! I use it both CF and RF. Someday I really need to find me a 5mm carbine barrel though...


#4063 need help finding a cocking piece for my 591 bolt

Posted by JFK52 on 14 January 2016 - 05:43 PM

I have been experiencing a multitude of misfires lately. I took my 591 to my gunsmith and had him take apart the bolt. I have a broken firing pin. No problem as Numrich has them and I have a couple spares. Another problem is that the cocking piece has a hairline crack that covers about 75% of the circumference of the piece. It is part number 18 on the Remington diagram. The factory part number is 14007. I have been unable to find this part so far with my online searches.

Can anyone direct me to a source for this part. Numrich does NOT have them in stock. I do not know if this part is common with any other series of Remington rifles as the 581s, or if a 581 part could be adapted to work. I think they take a different drift pin set up.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. I have cross posted this request on the Remington thread on the Rimfire Central forum.

 I'm using the BKL 261 with a Redfield 3-9x wideview. It seems rock solid on my 591 and highly recommend it.  I don't think you'll be disappointed.

#3656 Recall info from back in the day on the 591

Remnant, this seems to be first hand knowledge. Thank you. I'm sure other accounts of this knowledge would be most welcome here.

#3411 My new 43 year old

Posted by Issa Akhbar on 11 April 2013 - 09:14 PM

I totally agree with YAV8...the 5mm RRM is the best rimfire round ever made, as almost every owner will state. Its surely the best turkey gun I've ever used, fully capable of consistent head/neck shots, with no pellet-ruined meat and without scaring off everything within a half-mile after a shot! I've seen small-game sized critters drop stone dead that were essentially just grazed by a 5mm round...I seriously doubt a .17 rimfire could cause that phenomenon. Good as it is, though, you really can't compare it to a .222 CF round. Like YAV8 said, different league there.

#1541 591 Magazines

Posted by reelman1 on 26 June 2011 - 08:50 AM

Those are very nice looking magazines.

Even sitting down, the $40.00 apiece I paid for 3 of the plastics is looking better and better, though.
