    I'm curious about how other recalls have been handled.  I was just talking to a friend who has one of these 597's, and while they retailed for ~$400, Remington is only giving a $200 credit, and only good for another Remington rifle (side note: R has no bolt action HMR, but not clear if you could use the credit on a Marlin, which is owned by R).  The $250 credit is for a rifle that retailed closer to $500.  The ammo refund is more palatable, sort of, as HMR ammo retails for only $14-15, with a $10 credit available.
    Thoughts?

    The recalls are a joke.  Both Remington's and Magnum Researches.  The best thing I've seen done was a guy who added more weight to his bolt handle and put in stiffer springs.  The gun runs just fine and he's had no problems since.  He shoots it a lot and has yet to buy another replacement magazine... where as before, he had purchased 5 of them.  How much weight or how much spring he added I dont know and he wont tell.  But it worked.
