rem 581

saw a nice rem 581 bolt action clip fed 22 today at a little shop for $239. looks pretty original and with nice wood. i need a camp 22. anybody have any knowledge of these guns? i would be using it for squirrel and ghogs. probably want to put a scope on it. i figure for that money its hard to go wrong as long as it shoots minute-of-squirrelhead.

Re: rem 581

Great rifles in my opinion and if in good condition, not a bad price.

Re: rem 581

A very reliable .22 . There are at least 5 within my hunting camp member's collections and when you find a brand of ammo it likes, it'll shoot very well. Not a light trigger but it breaks clean with no creep or overtravel. Would never think about upgrading mine.

Wampire - going harder, longer and deeper since 1984.

The receiver is dovetail grooved to accept many style rings.
No bases needed.

Re: rem 581

I agree with everyone above. I have mine and love it! Would never feel the need to "upgrade" to a different .22. Suckers are as accurate as the man/woman behind the trigger. I've covered a 5shot group with a dime with mine before at 50 yards. Like wampire said. Find an ammo that it likes and go from there. I've shot with wampire, and my .22 shoots excellent with my ammo, but may not shoot worth a darn with his ammo. so try out a bunch of ammo and see what you get!

I still can't get over that stock of yours Loggy. That's got to be the prettiest 581 stock I've ever seen!

Re: rem 581

I have a 581 very accurate and dependable you need to feed it what it likes. It is more accurate than I can shoot.
