Remington 581 Receiver Cover Replacement?

Anyone know if a metal receiver cover is available to relace the original plastic receiver cover on the Rem 581 22 LR???

Thanks!

Other then having one custom made I know of nothing in the marketplace. Did read an article years ago about one being made on a customized 581. Looked nice and sleek. The guy made a mannlicher stock for it too! Would've hated to see the bill.

I'll look for the article...I used to save stuff like that. Plus I think that Rem. 581's are one of the best 22's ever offered for the $. Six of them in my extended hunting family and my first rifle.

I bought mine new in 1968 a year after they were introduced when I was a jr in HS.. I just read that the big Green discontinued them in 1983. A fine shooting 22!

Re: Remington 581 Receiver Cover Replacement?

I sure wish I had an answer for you. I have found some after market stocks if you are interested. I am in the process of ordering one of those stocks myself. I just picked up a really nice LH model not too long ago. I don't think it had even been shot. But I remedied that real fast. The condition was as near to 100% as you can get in a rifle without a box.

I really like the 581's. IMO they are the best shooting inexpensive 22 LR's ever made. Tom.
