Very very nice.... I am jealous! I did a lot of my early gunshopping at Dick's. .. Not ashamed because I got some good stuff that I like much at good prices. But not those tactical versions of the 597, my Dicks had the green synthetic stocked scoped version for like 199.99 which I snapped up. Few months later bought a S&W M&P 15-22 and while I was filling out the paperwork someone was looking at Remington 597 VTRs and I had no idea, much heavier than 15-22 cause of the metal/vs plastic, but that was real nice cause the 15-22 w/o anything is really light .. Again very nice bro

Sweet. So which fore end is that? Looks pretty good.

Looks like Drucifer used a YHM Diamond Series. It does look quite nice on there.

I do wish Remington would make a receiver rail that would mount at the handguard height for a continuous rail from front to back. Somebody now makes a handguard for the VTR that puts the top rail at the same height as the one on the receiver, but I'd rather be able to just swap out the receiver rail and use whatever handguard I like.

I would if I remembered who made it. I saw it at Rimfire Central, but it might have even just been a Remington variant.

It is indeed the YHM.
I also installed the Volq extractor and hammer along with a surefire and CAA side mount bipod. Getting heavy but handles perfectly.
Probably gonna need to rebarrel next year as I plan on putting thousands of rounds through this thing.
It's just so much fun.

threads on the foregrip

Hey Gents, are the threads on that foregrip standard thread or are they lefthanded? I've had some serious trouble getting mine off and wasn't sure if it was just because of the locktight on the threads or maybe it was lefthand threads. Someone suggested they might be lefties

They're standard. Exactly what you'd find on the upper receiver of an AR-15. A regular AR barrel nut threads right on with no problems.

I just located a custom tactical handguard. No need to replace the barrel nut, screwed right on.

Can't get my handguard off.

I think they soaked it in Loctite. I'm ready to put it in a vice and try a strap wrench. I'm affraid though that the threded part that is screwed into the front of the receiver will come out instead of the tube coming off the barrel nut.

Have you all had to heat yours or did any of the tubes come off by hand?

Thanks,
Trevor
