I have all types of 22's, and have always loved pump guns. I bought a mint Rem model 572, and just wondered if any of you have one, and could give me a review. Reliable? How accurate? Tks in advance.

Old Remingtons are great! New Remingtons are not! I have the 552. Mine was made in the 60's. It's a great rifle. Yours probably is too.

I bought a used one last year in the BDL Model, and I'm not too pleased with it. I love pump guns (I own 7 Rem 7600's) and wanted to add this 572 to my collection. I probably should have broken it down and cleaned it thoroughly first, but I didn't. I mounted a new scope on it and took it to the range. I shot it at least 50 times and could not get it to sight in. The shots were wondering everywhere. About every 10th shot the action would not discharge the empty shell. That's why I say I should have thoroughly cleaned it first. I was so disgusted that I brought it home and stuck it in the safe. That is where it has been ever since. Maybe it is just "That" gun and not every 572, but it is ridiculous for the price of these if they are that flawed.

My Ruger 10/22 is a whole different story. Flawless and most accurate 22 I have ever shot. I bought it new 27 years ago from Service Merchandise. Of course I have added a hogue stock and a Butler Creek fluted Bull barrel, which helps.
