Remington Model 16 info

Post by Hardrada55 » Mon Mar 23, 2015 6:21 pm

I need some info on the Remington Model 16 semi-auto .22 (which was only chambered in the .22 Remington Auto cartridge). The Remington Model 16 is supposed to be a take-down, but how do you do the take-down? Anyone have one of these?

Hello sir, The Remington model 16 has two screws on the forward front left side of the receiver. The bottom screw is in an elongated hole. When the screw is slid towards the rear, it moves the plunger backwards. This will enable you to twist the front barrel assembly and detach the barrel.

Check out this auction link: Picture #17 will give you a good reference as to how everything will work, for taking down the Model 16 and separating the rifle into its "take down" position.

This should help you out regarding your question.

Enjoy Life, Bob @ S and S HUNTCLUB

That's an interesting rifle - I had no idea about this particular Remington. FWIW, I have been looking at the other early .22's from Big Green also with some nostalgic interest - model 24, 241 autos and the model 12 and 121 pumps.

Neat guns! The 16 is too, I agree - nice take-down.

That is a VERY interesting and obscure Remington!

I've only run across one before and it wasn't nearly as nice as yours.

Shoots a VERY interesting and obscure cartridge variation, too.
