|5mm Remington Magnum Rim Fire
This cartridge was introduced in the late 1969 or 1970 for the Remington Bolt
Action Rifles, Model 591 Clip Magazine and Model 592 Tubular Magazine.
It has been obsolete since the mid 1970s.
There are a few different stories on why this great cartridge didn't make it:
It was reported that some people tried shooting 22 long rifle in the rifle and
there were a few accidents, (as the 22 long rifle is a wider diameter then the
5mm), not sure if this is true. But others have said: The 5mm Remington
Rim Fire became obsolete because Remington wouldn't license it to any other
company to produce it outside of Peters, which they owned.
I am not sure? To be continued ?
The Remington "U" Head Stamp is Obsolete.
The "Centurion" by Aquila of Mexico, "A" Head Stamp is a short current
run, not sure how much and how long ? Get it why you can!
