yes the butt stocks are the same the barrels are also the same the only difference ison the 58 you need to have two holes drilled into the barrel. the holes allow the pressure to eject the shells.
I have a Remington model 31 in 16ga and i shoot regular low brass shells in it and it does fine, it would depend on the type of game you are hunting. High brass shells are for more power and longer range.
I had the same gun and same problem. I found out that because it is a older model that you have to use a little more force and speed when you eject the spent shell. It should work because i have the cheapest wal-mart shells you can get and mine works just fine.
Odds are it isn't a Remington at all, but rather an Ithaca Model 37. To my knowledge, it was the only bottom-eject pump shotgun ever made. As for value; any gun (or anything else for that matter) is worth whatever another is willing to pay for it.
Try different ammunition, verify the shotgun is put together properly.
Contact Remington directly.They should be able to identify the variant of model 700 rifle you have after a brief description of your rifles stock,finish,barrel length etc.
Yes I own one but you must turn the spring around.
The model 16 22 is loaded from the butt of the rifle. Push on the rear of the lower knob at the base of the stock and slide the rod out. Loading shells into the cavity on the underside of the rifle and re-inserting the rod. You should also know that the Model 16 takes a special Remington .22 caliper shell that was only made by Remington and not manufactured today. The Model 16 was the only rifle to use this shell. The rifle is about guaranteed not to operate properly with modern .22 shells.
I have a model 1100 Lt 20 ga. magnum and it will fire the 2&3/4 shells but will not cycle or eject them. Someone told me that the holes in the barrel to let the gas escape are different on the magnum. I bought another barrel for 2&3/4 shells and it cycles them fine with this barrel.
