#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.

#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.

#4221 Original 5mm cleaning kit pics

Posted by Groundpatrol on 07 June 2017 - 02:49 AM

So I got this seemingly unused 5mm cleaning kit from my fathers collection as well. I wonder if the typed label on top was a reminder for him, or to keep us kids (at the time) out of it.

#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...

#3919 Sell or Part Out for Folks that Need Parts?

Posted by JFK52 on 17 December 2014 - 12:47 PM

I say keep the rifle intact. Take what ever option suits you best with an intact rifle. Sell it to someone who wants to enjoy this fantastic rimfire.

Going the parts route is much harder. You will be hard pressed to find persons who want each and every part especially if you want to do it all at one time. You will be dealing with multiple buyers. That translates into many seperate transactions each with it's own time frame, considerable personal effort and shipping. It sounds like you could get the same money as for the parts ($400-$450) or better if the rifle is a true "safe queen".

I do not know anything about the 5mm Craig to make a comment on that route.

#3827 BKL 257 Rings

Posted by Magnum on 15 June 2014 - 12:43 PM

 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.

#3541 Greetings from newbie with 5mm?

Posted by Lie_Sniper on 18 July 2013 - 11:02 AM

I grew up in south Texas and killed my first coyote with my 5 mm back when they were new. The guns are very accurate and with the proper shot placement you shouldn't have any problems killing them. With that said, the only time I didn't recover a coyote using my 5 mm is when I shot one facing me head on. The animal was about to bolt so I hurried the shot and hit him low in the brisket. I don't know if the coyote survived the hit, but I didn't recover him. I found some hair and gristle, but almost no blood. Anyway, if you can get steady, I wouldn't bet against a man trying to hit a coyote in the eye at 100 yards. If you can shoot well, you'll do very well with a 5 mm. They are fun rifles and in my opinion, they are very easy to shoot well. The bottom line in my book is that I believe that the person behind the trigger is the most important factor in a gun's lethality . . .

#3029 A couple questions about my 591M...

Posted by Issa Akhbar on 07 January 2013 - 12:59 PM

There's no problem loading either the 591 or 592 as a single-shot; I do it all the time while sighting-in at the range. These are not "controlled feed" designs, like a Mauser claw extractor. There is a specific post on the website here somewhere for the current status of new-manufacture 591 mags...if I remember correctly, they're getting very close to being ready for sale. You should use search...

#2357 Central oregon digger hunt

Posted by sixshooter on 25 March 2012 - 11:18 PM

The second day started about like the first. we made the drive from where we stayed. we looked at some more of the land owners guns and showed him some. I did some sight in with my 10-22's while the critters got warmed up. Then I broke out the 22-250 and the 5mm. It wasnt long till I had a target at about 140 yards. at this point I chose the 22-250 and let a 55gr vmax go. I didnt see what happened but my buddy let out a holler and said it flew way up in the air. Dead digger. Then closer in at about 100 yards all heck broke loose and I had the 5 on the rest. I made several shots and got one confirmed kill and missed a couple. He got one with his 204 ruger. the action was about the same as day one. he got a good head shot on a digger at about 85 yards with the hmr. and I got a couple good licks in. When we pushed them all back into hiding we went on a walk around the property again. we both got some shots in at various yardages. He made a great shot on one at about 100 yards on top of a burm and just rolled him flat with the hmr. we continued our walk and saw a few critters but they were a little more skittish this day. we were about half way through our walk and I spotted one standing looking at me and I had to sneak around a tree for a good rest I settled the 5mm in against the tree and hit him square in the chest at about 50 yards and the results were just devestating. A quarter sized hole clean through him. walked about another 100 yards and saw one on top of a rock pile at about 30 yards. I settled the crosshairs on him and rolled him good. we finished our walk and saw several more but could not get any more shots. all in all a very good day of hunting. Here are some more pics of the damages.

#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.
