Re: Remington 514 BC .22 short, long or long rifle
Remington 514 was my first rifle as well. My Dad gave it to me for my 7th birthday in 1961. Mine has the regular sized stock, and like the OP said, a tack driver. I always new that my Remington was "better" than my brothers Winchester 67 because he had to pull a knob on the end of the bolt to cock his instead of mine cocking when I opened the bolt, like Dad's rifles.
