No experience with the 552 , but I am a fan of tube magazines over clip mags on .22s

Id rather be lost in the woods ,than found in the city

Hi Rex,
Dont leave us on tender hooks! '-)
Did you take the bolts completely apart and clean out the extractor spring and the tiny "extractor spring seat" under it? Caution!!! It's SOOOOO small and easy to lose!! But Brownell's has em for $6.99. 8-)
I've had 3 552's since 1971. None had any issues. First one bought brand new in '71 and the other 2 i bought
used. Various conditions of accumalated crud in the actions, trigger plates and barrels. Reliable nonetheless.

Let us know Rex. Thanks, Nick

If you want the rest of the story go to the Graybeard forum Gunsmithing sponsered by 4-D Reamer Rentals.

"The Gift .22 . . . . . With issues."

I finally got it to shoot semi-automaticly.
