Here's the one I picked up...

Due to Remington's choice in buttstocks, I am currently experimenting with sights.
I giggle like a little kid every time I rip off a bunch of shorts through this thing. Such a fun little gun.

Had good memories as a kid shooting with my cousin and his Rem. Model 12 octagon brl. pump. So 20 years ago I picked up a 1970's Rem. 572.

Their just fun and kids really dig a pump action, lol.

Someday, hopefully I'll find a "Grandad" Model 12 so the 572 has a plinking buddy

A little help. Friend had a 572 he said he got it in the 1970's.

"PA" code says Jun 1954?



A1600000 range serial.

Well shootz the sights and checkering say that it is not a 1954 but maybe 1980.

I agree. The finish and checkering say 1980 not earlier.

Thanks

Rich

This was on the Remington web site before Freedom Group bought the company and removed much good information, I have that link saved in my favorites but it no longer works.

An interesting tidbit of 572 information I just learned so passing it along.

Can I change the Model 572 Monte Carlo stock to a straight comb stock?


Table of Contents

1

The Model 572 is offered with a Monte Carlo stock, which allows you to use a scope more comfortably. If you wish to change to a straight comb stock, we do offer an 870 20 ga stock that is interchangeable with the Model 572. You may order one of these stocks by sending in a parts order form HERE, by calling our parts department at 1-800-243-9700 M-F 9-5 EST or through our online store at www.shopremingtoncountry.com.

Thanks for that. I had done a search, and found a couple of threads here that mentioned the 20ga 870 stock would fit. I recently got a smoking deal on a NIB 20ga 870. When I find some time, I'll pull both stocks and confirm.

I got one about three weeks ago. At this point, I have not shot it much, probably less than two boxes.

I am still happy with it. It has a feel of quality. I think this one is definitely a keeper.

I still have not put a scope on it. It is a bit of a toss-up between the Vortex Diamondback 2-7x35 and the lighter, but more expensive Leupold VX-Freedom 2-7x33 Rimfire.

Question 572 receiver finish

the newer ones with the hi comb butt stock come with the matt finish, powder coating maybe, I do not know for sure. all my older 552/572 rifles are the old painted receivers, don't believe they were ever anodized. a friend bought a very dirty, well used 552 years ago. he took it apart and soaked the receiver overnight in simple green. well, the next day it was clean and all the black paint was off the receiver ! he got a rattle can of flat black grill paint and the rifle looks excellent now. I have seen a few of them that have been stripped and left bare aluminum, looks very nice, and eye catching.

I have the same sight on my 552, I never could get the factory sights to zero, the Williams fixed that problem. I safely packaged and marked the complete factory rear sight, it is expensive to replace.

I ordered a new 572 BDL a few months back. It looks and shoots great. The people at my FFL when I picked it up were very impressed with the wood, fit and finish. I put a Leupold 2-7X33 rimfire scope on it... the Eastern Oregon ground squirrels are hereby on notice!
