    That was a 37 I was thinking about and not a 34. The 37 is one of those I will probably never own because of the price they bring.

    My tackdriving 541S has been discontinued, replaced I'm told by the plainer version 541T. Should be good.

    The 541T is the bull bbl'd target version of the 541 series rifle.
    The 541S is the tapered sporter bbl'd version of the 541 series rifle.

    A pair of 541s remingthon sporter rifles.

    The 540 series of rifles remington put out had the fastest lock time of any rimfire rifle they made. I like to shoot off-hand with a 540 target rifle. It's relaxing to me.

    I bought a Rem 513T earlier this year that was missing the rear sight.
    I had to put together a Redfield 57 to make it complete.
    I have not shot it yet.

    I've been on the fence on purchasing a 513 for awhile now to teach my kids to shoot with once they are old enough. My wife is very encouraging in regards to teaching them to shoot young and proper safety. Something about the old 513 really intrigues me. It may be that ive always been interested in older military rifles. As well as if I were a kid a 513 would be great to learn on.

    I have a Remington 513T, Model 37 with adj butt plate, Winchester Model 75, 67A, Winder Musket, Stevens 44-1/2 & BSA INTL, Marlin 39a,all in .22 rim fire, and I rarely shoot any of them. I went out to my shop to bring them inside to take pictures but the heat drove me back to the air condition inside. Maybe later.

    I have a Kimber 22 Hunter. I am VERY pleased with this little rifle. Best .22 I've ever owned.

    Thats quite a collection. There is not a gun on that list I would not love to own! My 513 will deliver to the gun shop tomorrow. I wont get off in time to get it until Friday. Hoping to get it to the range this weekend.

    Well a dark cloud came over and cooled things a bit so I went to the shop and dug out the .22s, not all of them. Here are some pictures. I think you can tell the names by looking but in case you can't. Top to bottom. Remington 37 with changeable butt plates and one really far out adjustable palm rest with Parker- Hale sights. Winchester 75 with Redfield sights. Remington 513T with Redfield rear sight and factory front sight. Winchester model 67A. This rifle appears unfired. I bought the 513 T at an auction for wagons and horse gear, saddles, bridles & other tack. I was walking out of the auction when I saw the rifle, took a bid number and waited & waited. Finally I go back to the people sending up items to the auctioneer. In my kindest voice I asked when the dear might be sending up the rifle? She said, [since you asked so nicely sweetheart, I will send it up next], and she did. Only one other guy was bidding against me, the owner I suspect. I thought to myself, I am going to $200 dude and if you bid one more dollar you are taking it home, but he didn't and I got the 513T for $200 plus auction commission of $37. I could post pictures of my other target .22s but I am tard. I just noticed that I have pictures of other .22 target rifles from an earlier time so here goes. Now I am really tard.

    The best .22 rimfire I ever owned was a 541S. Like an idiot, I traded it in for a 541T with the belief that the heavier barrel would shoot better. The thin barrel 541 shot better than anything I ever owned, don't know why I thought I could improve it but I was young & dumb.
    (now I'm old and dumb )
    The 541T is a great rifle but no better than the thin barreled 541.

    I like the old Remington 22s. I ran across a 521-T Junior Special a few weeks ago with a marbles rear buckhorn sight (no peep sight). I thought it might fit my wife well and it does. She got to shoot it for the first time yesterday and had a ball with it shooting steel at the silhouette range. It was on target when we got it and I never got it out of her hands to try myself. This one was a mess but cleaned up nicely. It now has a new life.

    I like my 1943 513T it's one of my better shooters. I like the full size 22s and the match sight set ups.
    Although I think if I had to replace my 513t today for $650+ I think I would rethink a newer platform. In all honesty my daughter's rascal has a better trigger than my 513t.
    Also that little gun shoots very well. Not to far behind the 513t with my skill set.

    I picked up the 513 yesterday. Straight from the FFL to the range. I put a 4" paper plate up at 50 yds. I installed the rear sight and first shot off hand was on the bottom of the plate! I knew I was going to like this gun. The sights sit a little low on the gun. I had to get the feel of geting my head that low on the stock. The 4" plate was a little big for the front sight insert. I made a plus sign with 4 black pasters and was able to get a better sight picture. I didnt set any off hand records but had a lot of fun.

    The gun is pretty neat. Its obviously from a different era. The color case hardning is odd for me on a bolt gun. Metal is in excellent shape. The wood has a few dings consistant with match use. As mentioned before the trigger is not great. Overall I love the gun.

    You WILL enjoy the 513T. I have two of them and enjoy shooting them just as much as I do the Mossberg M44s, Rem 40Xs, Win 52Ds, and H&R 12s using irons. GREAT little rifle for the young ones to learn on as they are not as heavy as the others.

    The ones used by the military will have the comb of the stock cut down to make it easier to get on the sights... The un- altered ones bring more. They also will have a ramp front sight instead of a globe. Most are parkerized. Rear should be a Redfield 75 on a mounting block
