I picked a model 55 Semi Auto Single Shot the other day, for no other reason other then I knew nothing about this little gun or had ever seen one before.. After getting it home I did do a little research and decided to try it it out. Wow, what a slick working little .22
How rare are these to find these days?

how can a rifle be a semi-auto and a single shot?
to me a single shoot holds one shell and must be reloaded by hand after each shot a semi-auto holds several shell and all you need to do is pull the trigger. never hear the term semi-auto single shot before. thanks for cleaner up my confusion.

It is a single shot since it is loaded one cartridge at a time, but it is automatic in the sense that it re-cocks, and ejects on each shot. It also has an automatic safety after each shot. After cocking the first time, you just push a shell in, clear the safety and pull the trigger, over and over again.

I grew up with one of these. Amazingly accurate. Dad taught all three of us boys to shoot with it as its about as safe of rifle as you can get. Well if you remember not to put your hand under the ejection port in the bottom of the stock.

I almost picked up one for $285.00 locally last year but the funds got sidetracked.

I'll be on the look for one again this summer once work picks up.

I always thought of it as a semi auto without a magazine.

I sold a model 55 on GB 4 years ago for $325, if I remember correctly.
The rifle was out of an estate I did, realy nice condition.
