The Remington Model 512 Sportmaster is a bolt-action rifle manufactured by Remington Arms.[1] The Model 512 has a 25-inch (64 cm) barrel, a one-piece hardwood stock, and a blued metal finish.[2] An unusual feature of this rifle is that it uses a tubular magazine in conjunction with a bolt action. Most modern tube-fed firearms typically use a lever action or a pump action, but in the middle of the 20th century, many bolt-action .22's used tubular magazines as the high-capacity magazine of the era.[citation needed]


Model 512P
The Model 512P had the same specs as the standard model but with a patridge-type blade front sight and a "point-crometer" peep rear sight.[2]
Model 512SB
The Model 512SB was the SmoothBore model (Garden Gun) with open sights.[2]
Model 512X
The Model 512X featured improved sights and was produced from 1964 until 1966.[2]
