2016 Remington 552 Speedmaster .22 S, L, LR Autoloader
1967 Remington 552 Speedmaster .22 S, L, LR Autoloader
Remington has been making the 552 since 1957, and they say it's the only American made semi-auto that choots .22 S, L, LR.
Are they still using the "floating chamber?"
IIRC, designed by Carbine Williams.
My 1962 model was a chore to reliably switch between ammo types.
It required very frequent chamber cleaning.
I have a 572 field master model that I would not sell for double its retail.
Very under appreciated design and ergonomics. Points like a 20ga framed shotgun.
The 20ga 870 wing master buttstock will fit the 572 model with no fitting required. Nice swap if you bought one with the check riser monte carlo type stock and wish to use the wonderful iron sights rather than optics.
The lower cheek weld allowed by the shotgun stock really makes the irons line up like a lazer.
550 has the floating chamber... 552 does not.
Is the 550 model the predecessor of the 552 or it a completely different design?
