I got a 552 for christmas when I was 11 years old and sold it to a friend when I was in my late 20's. He gave it to his son and it got stolen a few years back. My friend went to his first gunshow a week ago and came home with a Remington 552 Speedmaster BDL. He brought it to me to put a scope on it for him and while sighting it in I shot a 5 shot .75 inch group at 50 yards. Guess what my next gun purchase will probably be?

I like my old 552 ... not sure of the date but I think it's an older one ... haven't had it long ...

I'll outshoot most 10/22's with it ... those that have only a few Ruger parts on 'em, I prolly can't touch ...

it eats anything I put down the tube ... shoots, shorts, longs and long rifle ... no mags to f@ck wit ... :biggrin:

I'm old and "old school" I guess ... and from here on out, I will be ...

I don't know if they made a Pre-BDL or what but mine is not fancy ... no checkering but fairly nice chunk of walnut ...

anyone know how to "date 'em" ... you know what kind of date I'm talkin' 'bout ... not a "Tail pipe" date ... :wink:

There's a date code stamped on the left side of the barrel next to the receiver. I went online and looked up remington date codes and found it for the one I had that belonged to a friend. It will probably be a 2 letter stamp. I believe I can see it in your third picture.
