So I check out the Remington 597 I am set on getting today at the local gun shop, and I notice that the trigger is a bit heavy. Is this something that can be adjusted? If so, can I do it myself, or will I have to get a gunsmith to do it?

It kind of surprized me, because I felt the Remington 597 Varmint's trigger, and it seemed perfect. So, thats what I was expecting out of the regular 597, but the regular 597's trigger just seemed heavy/hard to pull.

I found that I can get a Volquartsen Remington 597 Target Hammer, but was hoping to be able to adjust the hammer myself.

Anyone ever do this before?

  Remington's website doesn't say anything about "adjustable triggers" only Teflon/Nickel plated sears and hammers.  Guess that leaves out polishing.  Maybe something can be done spring wise.  If not it may it's the luck of the draw as far as getting a decent trigger.

I used the rifle first ,break it in, get used to it before you voild your remington warranty.
One major problem with the 597 is lack of after market parts.

I'd contact a gunsmith, almost anything mechanical can be adjusted.

I went to buy it yesterday, and ran into some local law issues (currently in the military, and not a resident of the state). But once I find a set of my military orders, I should be able to bypass it (kind of a long story all in itself).

I have found a replacement trigger, but will heed Joes advice and shoot it a bit first.

For anyone else with a 597 and wondering, there is a great thread on fixing the trigger weight here; http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=331299

Are you against a ruger 10/22?  These a lot of aftermarket parts availible and it sounds like you might wanna customize?

I won't deny that the customization world is much larger in the ruger 10/22 community. However I believe the Remington to be more accurate, and like the feel and look of the Remington better (along with the price).

There is little I want to customize, and what I want to customize, the Remington does in fact offer.

I'm already sold on the Remington over the Ruger. But I will say that the 10/22 is a good rifle as well.
