I just purchased two rifles from my Great Uncle.
This one is my first Remington rifle.
It is a model 550 semi auto it is a beautiful firearm.

Love my Remington 700BDL. It's amazing that Remington could produce such high-quality guns, then ruin Marlins. And their .22 ammo... [turns away to gag] How can they make the most accurate bullets (168gr boat tail hollowpoint national match) I've ever shot out of my 700 and ALSO make Thunderbolts?

that gun will shoot anything you feed it, from CB caps up to long rifle, dose yours still have the spent case deflector on the right side? it mounted with a slot and a small screw on the top of the receiver. a lot of them got taken off or lost,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Ok Olskool what year is a YY barrel code?
It is a walnut stock.
Cant believe the craftsmanship that went into an econo 22.
This thing is stoutly built.

Problem with this forum and these kind of threads/posts is that you find yet another rimfire you "NOW" need to add to your collection.

Nice rifle made back when Remington still cared about what they put their name on. You most likely already know this but the reason that it will function with almost any load is a floating chamber so you have to be a little more diligent about cleaning it. My late friend had one just like it and I told his widow to hold on to it.

I do not refinish Heirloom guns unless absolutely needed.
Part of the fun is holding it as it was when your forefathers handled it.
I don't either. This one I bought a few years ago from a pawnshop. It needed it. I have my Dad's 1940 Remington 510 targetmaster (that I grew up shooting) that he bought for $12 in the early 50's. I cleaned it and didn't change anything. It has a beautiful brown tone on the metal and an old walnut stock that is one of a kind. It has a giant knot in the forearm.
