    Remington 550-1

    Brother bought one from a friend and it now resides with me $75.

    Found they made from 1941-1970 and my variation from 1946 - 1970 it has a single ejector.

    Took it to the garage right off and tore it down for a once over of parts and cleaning.

    Thing is in very used shape cosmetically in other words 60% finish wood and metal on the outside.

    Iron sights only not drilled and tapped.

    Screw down rear sight elevation only, front silver bead windage adjustable.

    Shoots shorts, longs and LR.

    Took it out and shot it at 25 and 75 pt of impact with some very aged Remington golden .22 HP LRs was the same 1.5 to the right. It performed flawlessly.

    ..I own two of these great old auto-loaders. Both of mine are in fine-exelent condition and were bought for 150 dollars or a bit less (each). I've never hunted them but gave them both a range test and got 1" groups with either of them at 50 yards, the more accurate of the two prints match ammo into nickle sized groups. They are fine old guns. Congratulations on your purchase..

    Bought one new for $27.xx don't remember the change but it was $27 plus change.
    Boy that was a long time ago. $150 -$200 for one now is cheap.

    Re: Remington 550-1

    I have had one since 1988 and I cut down the stock last spring to fit my 10 year old daughter.
    With a scope I can hit pop bottle tops all day at 50 yards sand baging the rifle.
    The Model 60 life is too short to shoot anything else.

    Re: Remington 550-1

    I have considered taking it out to the garage and set up my mill and drill and tap it for a scope. Thing seems very accurate, taking advantage of that with a scope which I happen to have several 3X9s laying around.

    My 39 has iron sights.

    Re: Remington 550-1

    Yep, I have on too. It belonged to my Dad and it was the first rifle I fired, the first one I took game with (a groundhog), and the first weapon my daughter ever fired as well. The wood on it is beautiful but it has sentimental value I just can't put a price on. I plan on this rifle, along with my 39A, being hand me downs to grandkids when I am gone. Got to start that legacy somewhere........

    Very fortunate to have family to pass them down to also. Mine will go to hunting family members that can use them when I quit using them. Kind of like to see them receive them.
