#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?

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.

#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.

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

#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 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.

#3257 couldn't stand it any longer

Posted by ohiomuskyhunter on 27 February 2013 - 11:15 AM

I fought the urge as long as I could, but I broke down and had to order a 23" contender barrel in 5mm. Unfortunately its been raining since I received it, but I did manage to squeeze off a few shots yesterday between downpours, so far I'm extremely pleased. I Thought I was going to post a pic but appearantly I don't remember how. I'll post pics after I figure it out Posted Image

#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.

#2536 Why is it this only happens when you're alone at the range?

Posted by AMMOe on 27 June 2012 - 07:40 PM

I went to the range tonight with the 5mm T/C to adjust a cheekpiece I'm making for the Choate stock. I got done shooting at bits of stuff on the 100 yard berm and spotted this corner of someone old target on the ply board backer. It was held in place by a staple on the left edge and had a dot on it. I thought I'd try for the center and held appropriately.

Wouldn't you know it??~AMMOe

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.
