I would guess that they are a good gun. They would have to be a lot better than Remingtons last couple of Semi Auto entrys into the rimfire field. Since it is a Pump it would be a welcome addition to some one who shoots the 870 pump shot gun as it looks a lot like them in design. They were made from 1955 to 1988. The Tube is standard of most 22 tubes. 20 short, 17 longs and 15 long rifle. They look like a nice gun to me. I sure would not complain if some one gave me one. :) Have fun with your new find. My 1992 Gun Traders guide gives a price of 155 bucks. My 2000 Wilson price book says 200 for VG 100 for fair. I would bet that the price now would be a bit higher and I would suppose your gun if used would be somewhere between fair and Very Good. So if thats the case say it is in good shape It should be worth at least 150. ( just taking a guess of course) If you want to know what it is worth the local gun shop should be able to tell you what they would put a price on it if they were selling it. Jim

OK I would suppose that that is a different number designation of the same gun I was going the model 572 fieldmaster designation. if they still make them I bet they have a number behind them such as 572 A OR B ect or a BDL designation. Accorrding to my book they made the BDL to Present which was 1992 so if they still make them I bet it is the BDL version. One other thing I Mentioned it would be a good companion gun to the 870 shotgun it would even be better if you had a 742 Centerfire. Jim

Remington 572 Fieldmaster

The gun is very clean with not a mark on the stock and only a small one on the receiver. The stock does not have a monte carlo comb and the checkering is the empressed type that Remington used in the past. I do shoot both an 870 12ga and a 30-06 model 7600. I feel I have a nice trio of Rem pumps and only want to add a 20ga 870 now. I also shoot a nylon 66 and an old Targetmaster single shot. For my Browning trio to be complete I want to add a 22 to it.

From the pictures in my gun guide non of the 572's had monte carlo stocks. The 572 A was not checkered. The BDL was and is so I would guess that is your model. They made a lightweight one in the past that was checkered from 58 to 62 but since you did not mention any thing different I doubt you have that model as it was a lot different it had a aluminum frame, Crome plated tube and light colored wood.

I had a plain version that is quite accurate. My son now has it. I had many of days plinking and hunting with it. Enjoy.

I have had one for about 20 years. Good reliable gun, fun to shoot. It is not the most accurate 22 I have ever had but it will hit pop cans at 50 yards all day long.

Hopefully I can resurrect this thread. I was shooting my 572 BDL this weekend, and I noticed (again) the tendency to "jump" after each shot. I am not talking about the tiny recoil emitted. I am speaking of a rapid shift after the trigger releases. It seems to be a mechanical thing, happens in conjunction with the trigger release, whether dry- fired or not. It CANT be good for accuracy! I have tried different scopes, different mounts, and I guess I finally gave up a long time ago. It isn't very accurate as compared to other .22's I own.

Has another owner witnessed this as well?

I have shot mind with only the open sights with Rem. bulk hollowpoints and at 25yds. I have been able to keep all my shots inside one inch (15 shots). I feel that this is decent considering my 59 year old bifocal eyesight. I have noticed on all pump action guns a release of the lock-up when fired. Ever notice it on a boltgun, I have on centerfires. Does not seem to hurt anything. I will have my 572 scoped by tonight and see if I can tighten up things a bit and do it at 50 yds. My 572 does shoot a little better than my looks almost like new nylon 66.

I was given one these rifles and wonder how the rimfire crowd feels about them.
This was my first gun. My dad got it for me in 1967 or 68. I still have it. It has taken alot of squirrels over the years. Now I feel like taking it our again to reminisce..
