The Remington Model 510 Target-master .22 rimfire bolt-action rifle introduced in 1939 was an inexpensive single-shot arm intended for informal target shooting and small game hunting. Chambered for .22 short, long, and long rifle cartridges, this rifle was also available in a smoothbore version for firing shot cartridges. It was produced chiefly in the 51 OA version with open rear sight, but was also offered in a 51 OP version with aperture rear sight at extra cost.

Among the outstanding features of the Model 510 were its 25' round barrel, one-piece walnut stock, cock-on-opening action, dual locking lugs, and twin extractors. When the rifle was cocked, a red-tipped firing indicator projected from the rear of the bolt sleeve. The safety on the right rear of the action engaged automatically as the bolt was pulled back.

Two Remington .22 rimfire bolt-action repeating rifles were brought on the market shortly after introduction of the Model 510. One was the Model 511 Scoremaster with detachable box magazine, while the other was the Model 512 Sportmaster with tubular magazine under the barrel. Equipped with a manual safety that did not engage automatically when the bolt was retracted, these rifles were chambered for .22 short, long, and long rifle cartridges. They were basically similar to the Model 510 which resulted in a 'family of rifles' that facilitated production.

In 1962, the Models 510, 511, and 512 were replaced by the Nylon 10 single-shot, Nylon 11 box-magazine, and Nylon 12 tubular-magazine rifles. Basically similar to the 510 series, these new rifles featured one-piece nylon stocks and trigger guards, 24' barrels, improved sights, and a flat bolt handle.

A further change occurred in 1964 when the nylon series bolt-action rifles were replaced by the Models 51 OX, 51IX, and 512X .22 rimfire rifles with walnut stocks. These new models had barrels and sights similar to those of the nylon series bolt-action rifles, but were otherwise the same as the older Models 510, 511 and 512.

On introduction of the Remington 580 series .22 rimfire rifles in 1967, the 510 series was discontinued. ■

The Remington Model 513 Matchmaster is a bolt-action rifle, manufactured from 1940 to 1968. Since the rifle was designed for target shooting, it came equipped with a sturdy half stock with sling swivels, a beavertail fore end, and a straight comb which rose at the heel. Matchmaster barrels were a 27' heavy target semi-floating type. The patented Matchmaster trigger mechanism had an adjustable stop. The Matchmaster was made to fire only the .22-caliber Long Rifle cartridge from a detachable magazine. Civilian versions of the Matchmaster have a blued finish, while those made for U.S. Army and ROTC service can have either a blued or a parkerized finish.

A letter code was stamped on the left side of the barrel, just forward of the receiver. Usually the two middle letters indicate the month and year in which the rifle was manufactured. The first and/or fourth characters are inspectors' stamps. The serial number of the rifle was stamped on the underside of the barrel, just forward of the stock.

Model 513T rifles came equipped with Redfield aperture sights, 27-inch heavy barrel, target stock made of American Walnut, six-shot magazine and 1.25-inch sling swivels. The 'T' suffix indicates that the rifle was the target model, originally equipped with target sights.

The 'S' variant is medium-weight sporter rifle. Model 513TS or 513S rifles were sporter models equipped with regular sporting-style sights. The 'S' had a non-target-type barrel, a ramp or post front sight, and lacked the rear receiver mounting block for a rear aperture sight. The Model 513TX was set up for a scope and came with no sights.

There was a contract from the government to Remington for 10,000 .22 target rifles in 1940. During World War II, 513T rifle were used by the Army for training purposes. This included issue to DCM affiliated clubs for training juniors, and to ROTC units. Those rifles that were purchased by the Army were stamped 'U.S. PROPERTY' on the barrel and the receiver.

According to the Remington website, approximately 137,302 Model 513s were manufactured. Today Remington 513T Matchmasters are still being used in smallbore competitions and are worth from $200 to $700, depending on their condition.
