    I've recently spent some time working with a 45 year old Remington 550-1 .22 auto. Is anyone familiar enough with this rifle to advise if it has a last shot bolt hold-open feature? I'm inclined to think not based on what I see, but independent confirmation would be a plus.

    Thanks,

    put in an empty mag/clip. pull back the bolt and see if its stops, if not it does not have a last shot/empty mag hold back feature.

    Hey John,
    I do not believed that the 550 had the bolt hold open. I had a model 552 and it did not have the bolt hold open.
