    I have a 504-T HB .17 HMR, The T guns (.17 HMR or .22 LR) came w/ heavy Shilen barrels and laminated stocks. They are extremely accurate. mine wins me lots of $$ :cool:

    The spoterer versions had walnut stocks and a Remington-produced light barrel. These guns have barrel problems.

    I've had the 504-T in .17 HMR, and the 504 sporter in both .22 and 17 HM2, both were absolute tack drivers. the 504-T with an Elite 4200 6-24x was not nearly as accurate as an Anschutz 1517 MPR I had with an Elite 4200 8-32x scope.

    I've been a fan of the 541-S since the 70's, but the 504 is much nicer in all respects, it has a great size and feel, and the .22 would shoot in a ragged hole. You feel like you are holding a quality center fire.

    As Ultramag was saying, there seemed to be a barrel issue that was affecting accuracy, it was a crap shoot as to whether you got one that was a tack driver or just so so accuracy. Remington did start sourcing barrels from Shilen in response to that. I managed to get a list of serial numbers back in about 1987/88 that were the Shilen ones and called dealers who had stocked a fair number until I located a serial number I wanted.

    What I'd be inclined to say is get one, shoot it and figure out if it is accurate like you would want, and if it isn't order a barrel from Shilen, they'll get you the exact right barrel for the rifle. You will love one of these rifles. They put the Ruger 77/22 to shame.
