Remington Introduces the Model 597 “Yellow Jacket”

Madison, NC – New for 2008, the Remington Model 597 “Yellow Jacket” brings fun and excitement back into rimfire shooting. It’s bold new look combined with its extraordinary accuracy will definitely turn heads at the range. (Note: The Model 597 “Yellow Jacket” is an exclusive firearm offering available only from select wholesalers through independent Remington Premier dealers.

Truly the ultimate 22LR target-rifle platform, this tack-driver features a 20-inch satin-blued heavy barrel and a distinctive, yellow and black laminated ambidextrous thumbhole stock that’s contoured to accommodate both right- and left-handed shooters. The newly designed stock is perfectly balanced and contoured for both offhand and fixed position shooting. The 597 receiver is equipped with a factory-mounted scope rail for the easy addition of your preferred optics.

The Model 597 is easily the most advanced autoloading rimfire rifle ever built. The difference starts with our proprietary bolt-guidance system, which features a unique set of twin tool-steel guide rails for better stability, feeding reliability and greater out-of-the-box accuracy. The bolt, hammer and sear of the Model 597 all feature an exclusive nickel-Teflon plating for smooth, dependable operation and an ultra-crisp trigger pull. To assure reliable, long-term accuracy, we’ve also incorporated a unique positive-locking, permanently rigid barrel attachment clamp. Receivers are grooved for standard rimfire mounts and drilled/tapped for the pre-mounted Weaver-style base. Completing the breakthrough design are an innovative last-shot “hold open” magazine feature and our patented, easy-to-use staggered-stack 10 round magazine box.
