Thanks The 521 is not used that much. It's a late production rifle June 1968 even these are getting hard to find in nice condition. For the past week I have my eye on a very nice model 34. I did not make an offer on it yet. I would today but I do not fell like driving thirty miles one way to go pick it up. I may regret being too lazy today. The guy could sell the rifle. The model 34 is in great shape and the price is fair. However I would pay his asking price. Some of the model 34's go for crazy prices. More than I'm willing to spend for one. You are correct about these old target Remington’s are a lot of fun to shoot. They also work well as hunting rifles. During my preteen years my favorite 22 was a Remington model 34. Since that 22 has a magazine tube you had plenty of ammo on hand in the tube for plinking or hunting. I spent many afternoons plinking at tin cans, homemade targets, small game. When it comes to accuracy These old Remington’s can hold their own. I took many rabbits, squirrels and pheasants with that model 34. Back then the farming practices were different than today. Pheasants would roam the fence lines of corn fields. We would walk the fence lines kick up a pheasant and take a shot. Most of the time we were able to get a shot at the bird while it was running along the fence line. Times are different today. Kids have more things available to them to do. Video games and so on. However, plinking is still fun in today. At my family cottage when the whole family is staying with us. My grandsons will be laying around playing video game. I’ll say to them Hey boys you want to breakout a few 22’s and have some fun. They drop the video games in a heart beat and want to go on the small range I have and plink away. We all have fun plinking away. Even my granddaughters get into the mix of shooting sports. Sometimes the young girls kick the boys A... in shooting. The girls pay more attention to shooting techniques than the boys. Safety wise they all do well. Proper shooting techniques is where the girls shine, they listen and pay attention to the details.
