Any 550 owners out there? I have a chance to pick one up for $100.
Perfect bore, missing magazine tube, but otherwise about 85% wood and metal. Any major pittfalls with this design? Functioning? Breakdowns, etc. It looks like a nice winter clean up project.
Any comment appreciated.

    I need to mount a scope on this old rifle. It has no dovetails. What type of scope and base should I use. I can drill and tap it myself. Thanks.[8D]

    I just aquired a 550-1 from my son-in-law. Needless to say it is not in good shape. I plan on re-blueing and finishing the stock. I would like some help if anyone has complete details on disassembly and reassembly of this rifle. Thanks in advance.

    I was just given this .22. It belonged to my late father. The date code indicates it was made in 1950. Anyway, I disassembled it for cleaning (I'm sure its never been apart) to clean it up.

    The floating chamber looks to have a gray grease around it, but maybe it's just old gunk. Is there a certain grease to use on this chamber? I was just going to CLP everything.

    Thanks!

    Does anyone have any helpful hints for Remington 550-1 reassembly?

    I'm not sure what the significance of the 9 or 3 are but the C would be April, the X December and the second position letter, in both cases b, would indicate 1955. This is consistent with the years of production for the 550-1

    I believe the 3 is a Remington factory repair marking, and maybe the 9 also. Maybe the Remington Society of America can help?
