Best 22 Semi Automatic that shoots LR, long and shorts
what older model gun shot the 22 long rifle longs and 22 shorts and was semi Auto and cycled/no jams?

Without testing my google skills I will admit ignorance on this one. I have never thought about it but I have never seen any semi that will shoot 22S. I am sure the answer is obvious, I just dont know it!;)

Remington 550, 550-1. It had a floating chamber so it would cycle them all. I just picked one up for my oldest son.

Have a Remington 550 and a 550-1 (birthday present from daughter, selected by grandaughter) They will happily digest LR, Longs, Shorts- AND- are my only autos that will cycle with CCI CB Longs. And they are darned accurate rifles. Had "Pwer Piston" floating chambers. See one now and again on, or

IIRC, High-Standard made a semi-auto rifle that would work with all three types.

Remington model 552 is an "updated" version of the 550 series,has been in production for years,and is a pretty slick lil rifle. it offers most of the same features of the older 550 series but has better walnut.

I have a Remington 552 Speedmaster that shoots all of mentioned rounds. It's old. It was purchased used in the early 80s. Keep it clean and lubricated and use good ammo-it's 100%. Use cheap ammo, I get a few ftfs. I get more ftfs in below freezing temps also. It shoots straight-even out to 100 yards. These can still be purchased new.
