Wear on 572 pump



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello, this is my first post on this forum. I'd like to buy a .22 LR rifle and narrowed down my options to the Remington 572 Fieldmaster (pump), the Remington 552 Speedmaster (SA, don't like the looks as much as the 572 - the bolt on the left side to chamber the first bullet) and the Anschütz 525 (also SA).

My favourite is the 572, but I like to shoot often and a lot, so I'm a bit concerned the pump action-mechanism is going to wear out after let's say a couple of 1000's of shots. Has anyone ever had this problem? If so, I'm thinking of buying one of the semi-auto's.

I had a 572 and it was very reliable, but that was a long time ago. If it makes you feel better, I've repaired lots of guns professionally but have never seen or heard of a 572 that failed to function.

I am excited to see that you want a 572!!! I have a 1978 model and it is still like new.I think it is one of the most fun 22lr rifles you can get.It shoots shorts,longs,long rifle 22 shells no problem and you cant say that about too many 22 rifles.It is not picky about ammo I think you will like it!!!

FMJ,

I had my 572 out last week, shot 300 rounds thru it and it worked fine.

Never had any problems with it since I got it for Christmas.......in 1962.

Still feels like new and I've shot many 1,000s of rounds thru it, sometimes a thousand a day.

If you like it, buy it.

My 572 Was My First Firearm . It Is A 1971 Build . Great Gun. I've Put Thousands Of Rounds Through It. Only Failure I Had Was A Broken Firing Pin Years Ago.

Wear on 572 pump

I have a 572 pump that I bought when I got out of the service in 74. I have NEVER had a problem With it untill recently. I was having a problem with it not hitting the shell base hard enough to set them off all the time. In the past few years it has not seen a lot of use so this weekend I took her all apart and gave here a good cleaning. Well she's good to go again! Concervitaly I'll bet I have put well over 15.000 rounds through her and this was the problem I've had. She shows a fair amount of wear of the bluing on the slide but thats it! I will be able to pass the gun down to my kids and to their kids too! Buy the gun......Jim

I recieved my 572 for Christmas in 71. The gun is a 66. I've had to have it worked on a couple of times. It was never very costly to have repaired, or complicated. Can't say how many thousands of rounds it's consumed, but round for round, it's a fine gun. I'd recomend buying it. Brad

You should buy it and pass it on to your grandchildren.I doubt you could live long enough to wear it out.Unless,you don't take care of it.
