Have a friend wanting to sell me his Remington Viper .22. Has a 30 round clip and he takes very good care of his items. Was wondering if anybody has any experience with it and what would be a good price to offer him for it. Thanks.

the barrel, parts of the bolt and FP, and springs were steel. everything else was polymer. parts are hard to find, mags are even harder, and they wont withstand any kindof abuse at all.

as for price, LNIB rifles are selling for less than 80-100$ on gunbroker. with one hi cap id ofer him 100-125$ MAX.

yet another victim of the failed AWB.

Before you buy it-- just do a web search for the Remi 522 Viper-- or go to Rimfirecentral-- I almost traded for one-- glad I didn't. Remington makes great .22s, but this one wasn't one of them.

A close friend had one when they first hit the market. It never would pattern consistently and jammed quite often as i remember. The Coolest thing I liked was the 10-shot clips had a plunger on the side that you pushed all the way to the bottom and basically just dumped ammo in.
Anyway, the friend got rid of it in a month and got a 10/22, and this guy is a remington nut. Like was stated above give it a quick search on the e-net and check gunsamerica to see what current prices are. Foremost, see if ya call trial run it.

I am by no means a gun snob as long as a bullet leaves the barrel most of the times I pull the trigger I like it. My old 522 was not that it jammed more often then it cycled, it's firing pin didn’t hit hard enough and it felt like my old Daisy 880, but wasn't as accurate as the bb gun. I wouldn't buy on but that is just me.
