Over the years I have had a 552 speed master and a 572 pump field master, both with the uncheckered stocks and the simple but wonderful iron sights. The speed master would sometimes double or triple fire and neither one was especially accurate. I gave both away to new teenage shooters who really liked them.

I then purchased a new Marlin 39A and it was accurate and allowed me to shoot all sizes of .22 ammo, like the 552 and the 752. I love it.

I also have two Ruger 77/22's, a 20" bbl sporter and a 24" varmint model (all .22 LR). Both are both very accurate and have great triggers.

The Marlin 39A and the Ruger 77/22 sporter each have a Leupold 4X Rim Fire Special scope which has very thin cross hairs and are ultra clear with about 5" of eye relief.

My 552 BDL is my favorite .22 plinker. It has shot 1000's of rounds and has never jammed even once. With all .22 semi-auots, I do believe that it is important to use good ammo (not that Korean crap with the soft brass) for them to function well.
