    My new rem 514 single shot youth model. This one must be a 1 in a thousand.

    Hard to believe but it may shoot better with standard velocity target ammo.
    Nice

    Thanks for the suggestion , I think Ill try that if I can find any. All the local stores are out of any kind of rimfire ammo and most cf as well.

    I hate to burst your bubble, but I've hd ones as accurate and I have a 512 'matchmaster" at my left elbow right now that is as accurate. Remington and a couple others have made some very accurate .22s and they are good values on the used market because everyone wants semi's

    Your not bursting my bubble. That just makes me want to buy another one. LOL. Im just not use to seeing this kind of accuracy in any of my rimfires. I dont even care that its a youth model. I like the 16.5" barrel but I might have to extend the stock a little.

    I have more than one Remington here but I have to warn folks about the ones that use the plastic mags. I sold one because the mags were a PITA. If handled even a little rough they would spew the ammo. the mags were as durable as a wet Kleenex.

    the gun was bloody accurate but I didn't need the aggravation.

    Thanks. It doesnt happen very often for me. I bought a marlin 60 (new model) at the same time and it shoots 3" groups at 50. The barrel is pressing hard against 1 side of the stock so I think well be able to fix it.

    I have an older Rem 514 that doesn't have a serial number. Stamped KF on the barrel. I know it was produced in May (K), but the (F) means the year could be in either 1937 or 1959. (F) also stands for 1985 or 2011, but that's highly unlikely.

    It's old, but it is still very accurate with most ammo.

    ...EXACTLY 16" on center
    That is great shooting! I have an old model 510 (single shot, place a round on a tray and run it into the barrel with the bolt). I *think* that it is my most accurate 22. I have shot numerous 5 shot groups that I can cover w/ a penny--this is OPEN SIGHTS at 25 yds. I should scope it one of these days.... Regards,
