Ive heard all the negative stuff about these rifles.
Now this is America the land of the monster truck and tractor pulls, Mods of every kind for Ruger 10/22's and AR-15's.
The plastic Viper should have some work-arounds.
My story starts out as I bought an almost new 522 Viper.
Have babied it, shot in decent weather and fed it standard velocity ammo and still in great shape.
Since then, word got out I had one, next thing I have been given two pretty beat up Alaskan Bush 'Camp rifles' that are inoperative.
Both need the magazine guide replace and broken ejectors.
Anyone have a fix for these two items?
The easy route would be the $130 trigger groups with all the new unmolested plastic mag guides and ejectors staked in place

Sorry, despite a bunch of Remmie's in the stables, none are 522 Vipers. No experience here. IS there any parts commonality between, say, a 552 action group?

Nope completely different critter.
The Viper incorporated as much of that synthetic stuff as possible.
Stock, receiver, trigger group.
It has metal stampings some heavy and some very light like the metal they use to make metal binder clips.
The magazine retainer clip is a metal stamping.
Also has the ejector intergrated into it.

Dang, there was a complete 522 on EveryGunPart.com (https://everygunpart.com/long-guns-kits ... cturer=301) minus the receiver yesterday but it's gone today. No way to sit down with a file and Dremel and make those parts yourself?

A person can get the loose parts but it how to affix it to the trigger group.

If the parts are replaceable, then there has to be a way to remove and re-install them.
