Remington Bolt Action Model Five Including Youth Version

Madison, NC – Remington Model Five offerings in 2008 – the Model Five Youth in 22 LR; the Model Five Laminate in 17 HMR; and a classic Model Five in 22 LR with European Walnut stock. Whether you are a new shooter, small game hunter or just like to spend an afternoon plinking, these full-featured rimfires deliver a level of performance you would only expect from a premium centerfire rifle.

The Model Five platform features a reliable, smooth-operating solid steel bolt action; carbon-steel, hammer-forged barrel with standard 1:16 inch rate of twist; detachable, steel magazine box with five-round capacity; steel trigger guard; chrome-plated bolt body; single stage trigger with manual two-position safety; butt plate; convenient sling swivel studs (excluding Youth version); adjustable big game-style rifle sights; and dovetail-style receiver for the option of mounting optics. Both receiver and barrel wear a traditional polished blue finish which completes this classic rimfire rifle.

Model Five Youth 22 LR – Comfort, fit and safety are the key features of a firearm designed for the younger shooter and this rimfire may just be the perfect “first-time” rifle. The downsized, hardwood stock has a shortened length of pull (12⅜-inches) which provides proper balance and fit with the more compact 16½-inch barrel.

Bolt-actions inherently offer a level of safety with manual cycling of the bolt required but the inclusion of a single shot adapter on this Youth version adds the option of turning this five-shot capacity rifle into a single shot. The Model Five Youth platform, combined with the affordable and easy-shooting 22 LR chambering, makes this rimfire the ideal rifle for the new shooter at the range or to take afield on their first hunt. Suggested retail price: $237

Model Five Laminate 17 HMR – The flat-shooting, medium range 17 HMR offering has many rimfire enthusiasts back out at the range and in the field. By combining this premium performer with the accurate Model Five bolt-action, rimfire shooting is taken to the next level. On this version, the flawless-functioning action is housed in a sturdy weather resistant, brown laminate stock. 22 LR and 22 WMR chamberings are also available. Suggested retail price: $363

Model Five European Walnut Stock 22 LR – If a more traditional rimfire offering is your preference, then this Model Five with a classic wood stock, constructed of European Walnut, may catch your eye. Available in 22 LR only. Suggested retail price: $279

Every shooter needs a bolt action rimfire rifle and these well-designed Model Five rifles deliver performance, accuracy and a whole lot of fun! Visit our web site at www.remington.com for the complete listing of Remington bolt-action, pump-action and autoloading rimfire rifles.
