Remington Model 552 Speedmaster

I recently acquired a used 552 Remington which is a .22 rimfire semi-auto rifle. The owner's manual was not included. Can anyone out there give me instructions on how to disassemble this rifle for cleaning purposes?
Remington will take a month to get me an owner's manual.
Thanks for your help...

One month? Remington sent me one in less than 2-weeks (552 Speedmaster BDL).

Remove forearm. Use wooden dowel to drive out the two pins above trigger on receiver. There's fewer pieces than a child's picture puzzle. An excellent rifle! Mine IS a tack driver. Old aluminum arrow shafts make perfect speedloaders.

I pissed off my son-in-law with my 552. I shot almost as tight of groups as he did with his fancy souped up 10/22.

And yes about all you will want to do is remove the forearm and push the trigger pins outs for cleaning.

I've got the service manual on PDF, I'll send it to you.

I got ready to send it and realized that it's 5MB. Can you accept an attachment that large?

Driving out those two pins will get you to the major components that need cleaning. The trigger and guard will drop out. The 552 is an accurate fun rifle but I have found that after about 1000 rounds, a good cleaning is necessary (yes, I use cheap dirty ammo!).

I just take the wood off and spray it out with Brakleen. Clean the bore with Hoppes. Couple quick sprays with CLP and good to go.
Mine is incredibly accurate too. Must be inherent in the design. Mine won't cycle with Colibri sub-sonics. Shoots everything else purty good.

Oh, no-oooooooooooooo! Not again!

The Remington 552 Speedmaster is one of those 'I gotta get one' guns for me.

Now I gotta get one!

( he speeds off to the internet searching for the 552 with his name on it...)
