There's usually one or two up for sale at Ohio Gun Collectors.  Their show is this weekend.  If I find one there, I'll get contact info for you

You mean you want one marked "55".  Quite a number of model 50 receivers were built at H&R with  55 style stocks and barrels for various contracts so there is really no way to tell what a true factory gun may have been built as.   I've seen 55's in Model 50 stocks and barrels as well.  HTH

Bad news.  Both of the 55s I had seen at OGCA in the past have been sold.  Good luck with your search.
