    This didn't get a single response in Rifle Country so I'll try it here.

    Happened to see Midway lists a few .920 dia. replacement barrel options now for the 597.

    I hate to spend the $ for a 1-200 dollar replacement stock for the 597 as I see it mostly as a "tinker-with-it-rifle".

    For those that have any experience with the Rem 597 , do you think it would be possible to open up the barrel channel on the green plastic stock they come with enough to accept one of the bigger barrels?

    Wonder what one would find the stock to be composed of?
    Plastic with voids...
    Plastic over styrofoam...
    Anti-matter...?

    THX in advance.

    Go to this site http://www.boydboys.com/

    Click on "specials"

    Click on "Stockpile"

    Scroll down the page untill you see this "660-085-1 REMINGTON 597 HBC STK NL "

    Then buy it or buy two.

    That is a "nutmeg" (yellowish) laminated stock with a heavy barrel channel. These are the guys that make the factory laminate stocks for remington. They may very well require some fitting. but for $18 you could buy a couple and experiment.

    Just as another question.

    Jarvis and Volquartsen have the same blued barrel for about the same $.
    Just under $200 for their plain-Jane approx 18-20" version.

    Do you like one product better than the other.
    Their replacement hammers are also about the same price.

    Just wondering.
    THX in advance.
