The Remington Speedmaster auto and Fieldmaster pump are 2 of the finer .22's still being produced. Much like the Marlin 39-A, they are made from all steel and Walnut, no cheap plastic or Aluminum anywhere in their construction. They are much more costly, running new in the upper $500.00 range, but are worth every dime. They are a .22 that will still be around long after we have all dissolved into dust.

I also love my Speedmaster and Scoremaster, both older originals and very accurate shooters...

My front stock is loose at the front. Is that normal? It was like that when I bought it. Not really bad but it does ove a bit up and down and side to side. The end where the screw is is nice and snug,no wobble.

You can shim it w a piece of oil/trans jug. Just make sure its good and clean when you do it

Hot powder residue blasting the fwd wrist is a bit annoying with the 552. Had a couple.
FWIW pops blew his up last month, was letting 4H use it (he there) and the Remington Thunderbolt ammo (bulk, supplied by 4H) nuked it. His 572 a few minutes later suffered a similar event. Split the forend, and buttstock, smoked extractor. 552 just needed extractor/ejector. That ammo quarantined and lot # info sent to Big Green.

Default Remington 552 Speemaster/ No serial number.

I own one of these Remington 552 Speedmasters. It is much older than the one in the picture by tex. I bought it in 2005 or so for 125.00 in like new condition. I just got it out of the safe and I cannot find a serial number on it. Any ideas on this. I have a 2X7 Leupold on it since I cannot see iron sights as good as I used to. Had it out last weekend and one of my lady friends was out at the range with her dad. She has two teenage sons and they were taking turns shooting their grandpa's 22 rifle. I also had 2 Browning Buckmark pistols with me. As it turned out I helped the range officer with these new shooters and they burned about 300 rounds of my 22 ammo up on the steel swingers at the plinking range. They had fun and I donated the ammo to them. It is enjoyable to watch young men get into the shooting sport.

If it is in good working condition,and not beat up too bad on the outside,you got a great deal.
I would disassemble it,and clean it real good before shooting it. These rifles get really dirty inside,and need to be cleaned to perform at their best.

Here's a picture of it with the scope mounted on it. I used a 1 pc dovetail/weaver rail mount and put a Leupold Rifleman 3-9x40 scope with Leupold rings that I've had setting around from a gun I traded for several years ago. I've never cared for Leupold scopes,but it'll work fine on a 22.
