Ok i understand it"s more than likely worth nothing specially the problem it"s in.My father is refinishing the stock then the barrell, what i wanted to know is what room these marks? ns highlited lock cuz every i had actually laying approximately was this disastrous 2mp camera, ns am interested because my dad psychic this from when he was a kid and has to be his 22 rifle his totality life pretty lot ( ns remember the blowing the end candles through it, it was a and also still is specific rifle), was simply curious as to date of production, i assume it"s 41 since that"s when they first made the design 550 yet then ~ above Rem. Website i observed that they readjust the 550-1 in 46 and also was wondering if it got the "-1_ when they adjusted it. Any info on the "W D 41" would certainly be substantially appreciated
The barrel will tell you, though not the exact date of manufacture.Barrels are stamped "550" "550-1 or A" The "P" design has manufacturing facility peeps (very cool) but hard come come by with correct sights, if remaining. And the ever elusive "2G" model, Gallery special in .22 quick only. The "A" and also "1" space the same. Very slick rifles and I love them, the capacity to shoot shorts, longs and long rifles an unified in the magazine pipe is a function you watch no longer, cept because that the Remington Speedmaster. Prices vary, yet a minty one will lug $200.00 all day long and also I just take place to have actually one in 96% condition, directly shooter indigenous H........well friend know. LTS
The barrel markings show manufacture in august 1957.The significant difference in the 550A and also the 550-1 is that the -1 supplies one extractor instead of two. This adjust was made in 1946. There are also slight distinctions in the transport assembly and also the recoiling chamber.Parts? glad you asked. I have actually a finish inventory for this model.

Johnny,The markings you emphasize are part of a password Remington provides to date manufacture ~ above barrels. I do not keep an inventory perform on computer as i buy and also sell components every day. You could search under username "countrygunsmith" end on eBay - i keep around 400 components auctions to run at any kind of given time end there. LTS,There need to be some much more markings. You almost certainly have one that the beforehand rifles, 1941-1946, for this reason the barrel markings should be K, L, MM, NN, PP or RR through a solitary letter preceding it. Look carefully on the left next of the barrel simply ahead that the receiver, might be under the lumber line.

Opposing side has WL followed by a symbol the looks favor the Greek letter Pi. I"m pretty sure it"s an old one. The gun is in pretty good shape.
