Safety catch change
On the later models of the Express and Compact the way that the safety catch spring and plunger is held in have been changed. You have to remove this to get the safety catch out.
strip down guide?
Hi,

I feel the need to lube my new Rem express! Is there a strip-down guide anywhere for it. Or, if not , key points?

Cheers

Just bought Rem express...
Hi,

Just bought one of these in .177 from Basset guns - 99 brand new which seems a bargain!

First impressions straight out of the box are generally good:
- fit and finish OK
- stock is a nice bit of wood - looks like beech
- power is ok at 11fpe but it is deiselling a little
- weight is nice - certainly noticeably  lighter than my Hatsan 55s
- open sights are OK although I would prefer it if they were not glo type!
- Trigger is OK - a little heavy and some second stage c ...
Front sight
Other than the grub screw, what holds the front sight on. Is it glued, screwed or just tight  Question
Warning
If you remove the stock on the Express and Compact , do not try to cock the rifle. If you just tap open the barrel the articulated cocking linkage can flick out and damage the piston liner.
Compact power
I have been working on a .22cal Compact to see what i could do with it, I have it shooting 11-11.25, it fires smooth and the recoil is not excessive. I dont think you will get much more from it and i think the .177 will struggle to get power. I am now having the barrel shortened and will be fitting the steel AR1 silencer to it.
Remington express .22
I've just received my first .22 Remingtons, initial shots seem ok, but will have to chrono later to check, very accurate with premiers on open sights only fired about 20 shots, very good to me.
Sub forum
I have asked if Remington can have its own sub forum, as it is going to be a very popular rifle.
The difference with the Express and Express Compact
Just striped the two rifles, the only difference is the stroke. The Compact has a 15cm shorter stroke to the Express, the piston, guide and cocking linkage is the same. Now for the bad new, they have re-designed the way the safety is held in and is a bit fiddly to remove.
New Remington Express Compact
Dont think this is a express with a carbine barrel, its based on the express but the cylinder is shorter. The stock is also shorter and the length of pull to the trigger. When you cock it the barrel stops at about 90deg, on the box it claims the power is 7ft lbs. I test fired three .22cal rifles , firing 12 shots to clear the oil the tested it on the chrono, all three rifles fired 10/10.25 ft lbs with Superdome and AirArms pellets. If this will drop time will tell, the gun looks like it aimed at ...
