    I have always thought that the 513-T was one of the most ignored, underated of the smallbore rifles.

    IMHO, it is a very good smallbore rifle for the begining or club shooter, or someone like me too old to benefit from an Anschutz 1903, 1907 or whatever, and it has the benefit of being quite affordable.

    Plus, since I do not compete I love them 6 round mags!

    The rifle is far more accurate than I can shoot it as long as I stick to subsonic, target ammo.

    I would not part with mine for three times what I paid for it last month.:)

    I have a 511p that was my first rifle from the mid 60's and still a great old shooter. I to shoot the same type ammo. Boy have they got'n costly lately. Or at least what people think there worth.

    I have owned the 513-T, 514-S and 514-T and all of them were tackdrivers.
    Not on the level of my Anschutz but after a little work,close.

    My 513-T has a mismatched bolt (serial number wise) which I assume was the result of it being a club rifle at some point.

    My shooting buddy Ralph also says the bolt handle has been bent downwards.

    About what angle does a factory 513-T bolt handle bend down, if at all Shooter45?

    My 513S is very accurate as well, and like you said the M513 in general is somewhat overlooked, but the good part of this is that they are still reasonably priced. The bolt handle on mine is turned downward at about a 40 degree angle and around 30 degrees to the rear.

    My 513T is the first Rifle I received. I got it for Christmas way back in 1963. I have owned, sold, traded and swapped many rifles over the years...but the 513T is the only rifle that has stayed with me. Maybe I'll be buried with it...if daughter #2 doesn't try to sneak it out first.

    I don't own one, but the 513-T is one of the finest .22 target rifles ever made. I am old now - too old to give justice to the superb accuarcey of those great .22 rifles. We used to compete with those out-of-the-rack 513-T rifles against scoped .22 target rifles, and many times shooters of .22 scoped match rifles would just give up and leave the match. To top it off, the ammo we were firing was bulk Federal Match, while the civilian shooters used their own hand selected match ammo.

    Quite a sight to see - we'd walk into the match with our issue 513-T rifles, set up with click-adjustable open sights, web slings and just basic shooting gear - while the competition would have scoped multi thousand dollar rigs. In the end, we'd often out perform many or all of them. We had a great shooting coach.
