REMINGTON 522 OR 597?

I bought a 597 for my son for Christmas a couple of years ago and as of now I have sent it back to Remington 4 times. The store where I bought it has even asked Remington to replace it for me and Remington refuses. It has NEVER emptied a clip without jamming. They just clean it and send it back. I wouldn't reccommend it to my worst enemy.

REMINGTON 522 OR 597?

I also bought a model 700 VSSF in 223 cause they looked like a pretty well put together rifle. I fired a couple hundred rounds through it (all factory)and I had a failure in the bolt face. The (factory) round washed a channel in it and "welded" the hull to the bolt face. It blew stuff all over my face. When I sent it back to Remington, they said it was obviously abused and charged me $200 to fix it. Won't own another Remington at ANY price.
