Been looking for a 552 to go with my old 550-1. I came across a 1974 ('Y') standard model today.
Nice figure in the walnut stock, but no checkering and does NOT have the heavy finish coating of the new models. Standard dovetailed front sight (no ramp). Still has the shell deflector in place. Couple nicks in wood, no rust and good bluing on barrel. But the scope groove is a little beat up. $140.
I think that's a good price, am I missing something? (???).
