I bought my 5mm as a 15 year old in 1972 new at a local Coast to Coast hardware store in Iowa and for Christmas my Dad bought the Weaver cross dot scope that I put back on it. I used it for several years and was a crack shot with it! Big feral cats, opossums, gophers, raccoon, fox, dimes and pennies you name it! Rabbits were especially fun.

Well a year ago I found out about the new ammo being made and bought some and after 40 years it's back! So exciting to shoot this again. I stumbled on this forum and I am glad there is a following. I had no idea the prices for these are so high, it just sat in my case for literally 40 years and I just assumed it was a boat anchor.. I do have a box of original ammo that I never did shoot that probably 35 years old..!

That's a beautiful rifle.  Welcome to the forum.  It's been a little slow around here lately but I know there's still a few guys that love their 591/592.  Hopefully I'll get mine out next week for squirrels!

Way to hang in there. Never give up on a good gun.

That's awesome! I never heard of a 5mm mag back in the 70s (or 80/90s) but once I did it's been a very fine memory.

I shoot two 591s, one RF and the other CF conversion as well as a 10" TC contender
