And I was able to go pick it up. Still had to do a 4473 but I hate messing with shipping a firearm. Found it on GB

The walnut stock needs refinishing but the bluing is good. I paid about $140 with tax. I'll post pics when I get the stock done. My dad got me a 514 when I was 12 and it shot great. I sold it when I was 35. Wanted one every since. It shoots but I haven't shot for groups yet.

Way back in the Dark Ages, I 'bought' a Remington 514 for about (as I remember it) three books of S&H Green Stamps.

It has the finest bore of any rifle that I have ever seen and is a great shooter.

One of my daughters now has it... :)

Nice! I have one as well as one each of the 500 series of remies. Great little rifles. My 514 is my fav of the bunch with my 512 a close 2nd

Just a heads up when you strip the stock for refinish, Remington colored the finish on these so, when you strip the wood it'll be a much lighter color.

Or you could just leave the stock as is and let an old gun look like an old gun. I think the character marks look good.

Yeah cowboy I thought about that. And it may take me a year or so to get to it. I just don't like that shiny stock. I'll stain it and rub some oil on it to give it the old rub finish.

Oh yeah! Those little Remmys are good little rifles. My Uncle Harry bought me one way back in about 1968 or '69. I still have it.
God, how many .22's did I ever put out that rifle? I haven't shot it in a long time. One of these days I need to take it and my grandsons out and shoot up a few boxes of .22's.

Glad you found one, and the price does not sound bad. Now if you can find some ammo you will be all set!:)
