Remington 547 Custom Classic Rimfire

Remington 547 Custom Classic Rimfire

Madison, NC – The finely-crafted Model 547 Custom Classic Rimfire rifle is one of the best looking, best-performing bolt action rimfire rifles ever produced. Based on the Model 504 platform, the Model 547 is the end result of engineering redesign combined with premium components and subtle refinements to produce a rifle that carries an unparalleled accuracy guarantee. The Model 547 is masterfully-crafted in the Remington Custom Shop and is available in traditional, match-chambered 22 LR and lightning-fast, medium range 17 HMR chambering.

Based on the Model 504 rimfire design, the Model 547 has many detailed features that enhance its performance - a receiver machined from a solid bar of steel with a rear lock-up design; positive bedded action with twin takedown screws; dual extractors for positive feeding; and advanced barrel clamp design that provides a strong action-to-barrel union. The Model 547 design has been enhanced with a reconfigured bolt handle that mirrors the look and feel of the world’s most popular bolt-action centerfire rifle - the Model 700. This one-piece bolt handle and cocking piece are now integrated for enhanced strength. All triggers are hand tuned by our expert gunsmiths and set at a crisp three pounds. The flush mount, metal magazine box is extremely durable and will provide a lifetime of use. In 22 LR, the magazine capacity is six rounds and has a five round capacity in 17 HMR.

At the heart of this rimfire’s amazing accuracy is a button rifled, 22-inch Shilen barrel. These stress-relieved, hand-lapped carbon steel barrels start with a high-precision chamber (match-grade in 22 LR offering) and finish out with a concave “dish” crown that protects the high grade rifling from damage. Attention to fit-and-finish details and use of these competition-quality barrels allow Remington to guarantee sub-inch, five-shot group accuracy at 100 yards. Each Model 547 is accuracy tested in the stock, just as the end-user will receive the gun, not in a slave fixture as most standard accuracy tests are performed by other manufacturers; and our gallery test target is included with each rifle.

The redesigned, fine-quality walnut stock mirrors the classic lines of the Model 700 CDL with a straight comb; elegant black grip cap and fore-end tip; and traditional cut-checkering on the pistol grip and fore-end. The attractive satin finish on the stock is complemented by a high-polish, “buffed” blued finish on the receiver and barrel. Your Model 547 comes furnished with an attractive hard case and our guarantee of accuracy.

Singularly-crafted in the Remington Custom Shop, the Model 547 Custom Classic Rimfire rifle is the benchmark choice for the classic rimfire connoisseur or dedicated rimfire competitor who wants a lifetime of unsurpassed performance in a classically-crafted firearm.
