    Has anyone installed the Archangel conversion kit? If so, has it effected your accuracy? I'm looking to do a few upgrades after purchasing a Remington 597.

    I want a great looking gun but I don't want to lose on accuracy.

    Upgrades Below:

    Volquartsen Exact Edge Extractor
    Volquartsen Target Hammer
    Archangel Conversion Kit
    UTG Tactical OP Bipod
    30-Round Magazine

    You gotta be kidding me...they did it for the 597 and not the better-selling Marlin 795 (sold over twice as many)??

    Sheeeeesh...ok, time to get an email campaign started on Archangel's staff...enough is enough.

    Ya I just bought it. I guess I will let you know how it works. I'll post pics after everything is installed.

    Here is the before and after the stock install.

    The left hammer on the left side was in the gun. The one on the right is the new Volquartsen Target Hammer. Very easy to install.

    The new upgrades are awesome. Trigger pull is now around 2lb. Extractor is installed but was a little hard to get out and put back in. I found out after cleaning the factory oil off everything seemed a lot more smoother.

    The feel of the stock is pretty amazing. I thought it would have a cheap feel to it but its pretty sturdy.

    Yeah it's ridiculous how the aftermarket is for the Marlin 60/795, considering how many are out there.
