Great gun
Accurate and fun to shoot

I too would look for an older one if I wanted another.

After replacing the firing pin, a chamber burr would have been my next guess.
Dang Rex, you've replaced just about all the internals so far.
Remington should still support the 552 as it's still being produced. Maybe send it back to the factory, or see if they have an authorized repair facility near you.

Rex I presume you have cleaned it thoroughly and that the bolt is closing tight.

Well I decided against the 552. I bought a browning Tbolt 22 lr. I mounted a leupold 3x9-40. Gun is very accurate for what I want it for squirrel hunting. I sighted it in a 50 yards with cci mini mags sp. I shot 6 rounds while dialing it in. The last shot was almost center I left it at that. It was windy today and I was shaking some.

Well, after a few weeks of ownership of my new to me 1972 552 I have found an ammo it does not like..... Quiet .22 CB shorts! It shoots the LR Quiets just fine, but the short version of the same velocity of 710 fps.... it does not fully eject the spent case and jams. I have yet to take it apart or clean it. I am really not to worried about the CB shorts not working.....not an ammo I use and I only had a single box of them so not an issue.

Everything else works great. I really like this rifle. It is accurate too. I posted some targets in my other thread on this acquisition.

Rex, I really enjoyed your write up and experience with the rifle. I now know just about everything to check out if I ever have issues. Glad you figured it out.

Question for you guys with the early 552's; I have one handed down to me from my father. He bought it new in 1958 or 1959 and it does not have a serial number. I've completely field stripped it and it just doesn't have one. I've "heard" second hand that the early ones did not have a serial number . . . can anyone confirm that?

Yes, prior to the Gun Control Act of 1968 manufacturers weren’t required to put a serial number on them.
Early ones will just have the letter date code

I like them. I have three of them and gave a fourth to my son. All have been reliable. All have been accurate. One of my favorite .22s for plinking at the silhouette range. Not match triggers but not bad triggers either.
