Remington product safety notice

Recommended Posts

was waiting for an appointment this monring and there sat the Jan 2010 edition of Guns & Ammo. I ran across a notice that read "Do not use Remington 17 HMR ammo in semi auto firearms. Do not use the Remington Model 597 HMR semi auto rifle". Call 1-800-243-9700, prompt #3. Just thought I'd let people know.

Wow, just looked it up on the webpage at Remington.

They are telling folks with the model 592 chambered

for 17HMR to return it for a lousy 200-250 bucks.

My brother in law got a real beauty with a laminate

stock, and added a couple clips and a nice scope.

It was just under 600 bucks!!! He is really ticked....

THey should have had this figured out BEFORE you and

I are risking our skins at the range and field don't

ya think??? I will pass this along over to the varmit

folks too.....

Just to make sure I re-read the article and it does say the 597. However, I donm't know if there is a 592. I did talk to one "smith" who flippantly related that Remington can't seem to keep thier steel from blowin up....or words to that affect. This is not a quote. Remington has fallen from my grace years ago.

What I don't get, is Remington's lack of a

"we will make this right" to all those folks

that put the money down and bought this rifle??

The 10 dollar a box of shells credit and the 200

to 250 dollar rifle credit is a slap in the face.

Where can I buy some 17HMR for ten bucks, much less

a model 592 for 250 or less.

As I said before, we have one in my safe that my

in-law bought. My guess is that it is going to go

into a class action, before it leaves to go back to

the Remington shop!!

I use to think that Remington was one of the better

manafacturers around. I have an older 700 and a XP100

that shoot sub MOA easily, and I have had zero problems.

Lucky for me I guess, considering how well they stand

behind the stuff they make. I am now on a boycott of

further Remington purchases,seeing how they deal the

average Joe a bad hand nowdays.

Even though the number of owners will pale in comparison to other Remington owners, this could have devastating effects on future business. Knowing this now, I for one will not take a chance on this type fleecing.

    • scary interesting...
    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye. Franken Meat? https://www.wsj.com/articles/startup-producing-cell-grown-meat-raises-new-funding-1531738800?mod=hp_lista_pos4
    • sorry, quoted wrong post.   If one quotes a quote, the system messes up the attribution
    • Water that doesn't come out of a plastic bottle.
    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
    • Maybe, We have some of that disease in the family. I'm of the opinion that if you are diabetic the kind of beer you should drink is NO BEER. 
    • Not if you're diabetic.
    • Anyone here have any experience with keeping and using pigeons, especially homers, for dog training?   I have an almost 2 year old Brittany that has not even been out hunting yet.... Last fall he was pretty young yet plus I had some health issues that kept me unable to walk around the woods or fields.   I'm not trying to turn my dog into some kind of world champion hunter or anything. I just want to be able to spend more time, all year long as opposed to only hunting season,  doing the thing he loves to do the most. We already have a great time on a daily basis playing an endless game of fetch and he is the most prolific tennis ball catcher (after one bounce) that I have ever seen. He also spends his days chasing rabbits, birds and squirrels in our fenced in yard along with lounging in his very own pool on hot days. He is trained to do all the normal things like sit, lay, shake, come, etc and I have no doubt that he has lots of natural hunting instinct so this seems to be where the progression of his training should head.   I do live in town but as long as I'm not keeping dozens of birds at one time, I don't think it will be an issue. I will check with the city before proceeding though. I'm thinking of getting about 6 homing pigeon squeakers and keeping them in a hutch in my yard. Is there any problem with the birds being in the same yard as the dog?   I'm thinking I could go out to the country on any given day and plant a few birds for my dog to sniff out. I have access to private property to do this on but I am wondering, is it legal to do this on wildlife management areas? I think I recall that after a certain date it is OK to train dogs?   Anyone else do this? Any advice?
