Default Get a Remington 572 new or used?

Would you get a 40 year old slightly worn one or a new one? Used one off Gunbroker would be about 100 bucks cheaper. Not sure if the used one has better quality than the new one.

- Under $300 buy used.
- Over 300 buy new.

Just a curious question: Why Remington 572 ? How about Henry pump and Rossy pump ?

I already have Rossi pump. Not a fan of Henry pump - too heavy.

Found out about the 572 from other members here. What's appealing is that the shells eject sideways so I don't get pelted by spent shells like I do with the Rossi.

Also, the action looks really smooth. I say "looks" because I've never held one. Smoother than actions with a hammer.

But my opening question was more about the current production quality vs the old.

FYI about getting a rifle shipped: need to pay FFL transfer fee, shipping, and sales tax.

The private seller in CA needs to pay FFL fee when they ship.

IMO, the quality of New vs Old is about the same.
But more people go after the Old because the New one cost $600+ , a ridiculous price for a 22 rifle, Marlin 60 and basic 10/22 below 2 bills. This is Remington 572 not the discontinue Win. 9422 which is the most sought lever action 22 rifle.

I bought a used one 30yrs ago. You'd cry if I said how much I paid for it. Of course it needed repair.
The 2 sheet metal "clips" that hold the forearm to the mag tube. Called REMINGTON. They sent them to me for free.

15,000 rds later it gets cleaned every brick. Stripped in down twice, didn't really need it. But better before you need then have it jam up on me.


They are Sweet Guns.

I'll guess $250.
The slide action feels like butter compared to my Rossi 62 and fels twice as heavy.

Nope, not $250, or even $200.

$75.00. In the right place at the right time.

I just shot the 572 for the first time yesterday. WOW!! Hands down THE best 22 pump I've ever shot. Ok, I've only shot one other.
Nonetheless, the smooth action is unbelievable. Hardly any recoil. I shot free-hand with iron sights. Kept the front sights on the bullseye and bam bam bam, tore out the bullseye. Amazing.

I'll post pics later.

My first rifle was a Remington 572. I used to shoot it a couple of times a week. I did not keep track of my ammo count, but I know I shot at least a brick a week for years. The rifle never jammed. It is accurate, but not as accurate as my Anschutz, which encouraged me to sell it. Selling that rifle was a regret I had for decades, and I just bought myself another Remington 572 in extremely poor condition. I took the receiver to Gunfighter Tactical and they Cerokoted the receiver for $55, and it looks like it just came out of the Remington factory. The two weeks that Gunfighter Tactical had my receiver, I cleaned the barrel and used an ultrasonic cleaner on all the other parts. I am going to have Kendog blue my other parts.

OP for fun buy some CCI .22 CB ammo. As I recall, you can put about 21 of those rounds in the 15 round magazine, and they are as quiet as an air rifle.

Cosmetic blemishes on the receiver, but functions flawlessly. Super smooth action.

Remington 572 and Rossi 62
Two rifles feel totally different.

I'll try to post pics of mine, that receiver can be Cerokoted, and look new. I believe the Cerokote color was Midnight Blue, and it looked like the factory finish and it only cost $55 and about two weeks of not having the receiver.

Too bad they're in SD. I'm in Pasadena.
You're right about 21 rounds. I shot Aguila 22 shorts. Those CB ammo are in my stash somewhere.

I Ceracoated my Ruger MkII midnight blue after a unfortunate ultrasonic incident .. Old cleaner or changed px or contaminated who knows,, I had used the product for years ... Stripped blue off down to bare metal .. The midnight blue looks exactly like the ruger factory blue .. Its still my favorite pistol...
Cheers...

I agree. Cerokote in Midnight Blue would be an excellent color for a Ruger 10-22 receiver.
