Question Why pump action .22RL rifle is so expensive ?

I bought a new wood stock .22RL Marlin 60 for $180, a new wood stock .22LR Ruger 10/22 for $220. But the price for .22LR Remington 572 pump action is around $550. Why the price of pump action Remington 572 is too high ? (are the Marlin 60 and Ruger 10/22 made in China ? ).

Edit : I also saw many pump action shotguns around $350.

Mechanically more complicated. Better sights. Gloss walnut checkered stock instead of hardwood. Longer barrel. Cross bolt safety. Overall finish.

Probably not worth the price difference.

You can buy a Henry pump action H003T for around $400.

Default Henry pump

I have a Henry H003t pump. A great rifle. Accurate and fun to shoot. Fit and finish as good as anything I've seen. About $440 on line.

Nothing beats, in appearance and performance, my two Remington Model 12 pumps, one with long octagon barrel from 1926 and the other a takedown carbine from 1919. Slick shooters.

Check the prices for Winchester 1890/1906/62a’s. Even the Rossi copies.

My guess is the appeal is exclusivity of not being made anymore, nostalgia, quality of materials and workmanship.
My theory of the popularity is the same of revolvers vs. autos (ICORE competition). Why do people prefer a manual transmission vs. automatic?

People new to shooting are usually attracted to semi-autos. They dismiss bolt, lever, and pump actions as antiquated until they actually get to shoot and plink with them.

I brought a Rossi 62SA Gallery Gun to a private birthday shoot full of noobs and non-shooters, once they tried it they liked it so much they broke the damn thing. The next most popular was my S&W 6" 686.

Demand is too low for companies to justify making them anymore. In this private equity owned world of gun manufacturers constantly being merged, moved, and down-sized, tooling for these guns have probably been sold-off and most of the craftsmen/women that knew how to fit them together are either laid-off, retired, or dead.

$550 for a good working Remington is a good investment; it's not like they're getting any cheaper. My cheap Rossi 62SA has nearly tripled in value since I bought in used here in the Marketplace about 10 years ago.

They're tons of fun, externally beautiful too. Parts are getting scarce though.

Own a 572. Shoots great. Has a good feel to it. Load it up with .22 shorts for some gallery gun fun.

Bingo. I want a nice pump 22. These are the reasons. Just holding it and working the slide is worth the money. Class.

If you think the 572 is expensive, check out the Marlin 39A

https://www.marlinfirearms.com/custo...odel-39a-fancy

I'm just glad I got both back when the getting was cheaper.

I was at Greta’s Gunshop in Simi Valley a few weeks ago and they had a bunch of 1890’s, a 1906, a 62a, and a carbine short barrel Rossi 62. The Winchesters all range between $500 - $700 and are all “projects”. All were in need of a good cleaning and probably all the springs need to be swapped out. Kinda neat to see that many pump .22’s all in one place.

I was very lucky to get a nice 62a a few years ago from another Calguns member. I saw some one listing a Rossi in the classifieds out in the Valley. It’s one of them things uou always gotta keep an eye out for.

I own a .22 bolt, a .22 pump, a .22 lever, and a couple of .22 semis. The pump is the most fun to shoot followed by the lever. The bolt is the most accurate. The semis are easiest.

Probably won't, but my vintage 572 is a keeper. The tube magazine holds
13 rounds, and it's just a fun novelty rifle with nice wood furniture IMHO.

It's also designed to shoot standing, not benched.

Marlin & Ruger = budget brands
Remington & Winchester = premium brands

You can call me a peasant or whatever I don't care, instead of Marlin 39A for 3K, I can have :

- Henry Golden Boy $450
- Remington pump 572 $550 (total $1000)
- Ruger 10/22 TD Lite $500 (total $1500)
- CZ 455 $500 (total $2000)
- S&W 15-22 $400 ($2400)
- Ruger Precision Rifle $400 (total $2800)
- $200 for 4K rds of ammo
And a lot of fun

Anyway : A gun at the range is much more fun than a gun in the safe.

Throw in a Winchester 94/22. I think these are a good investment.

Add a Browning 22A. Another fun and classic rifle for collectors. You can get safe queens for $$$$. Or you can get a truck gun for $. But we're talking about a quality build.
