However, if it had the lawyer pin, it would be across screw number 14 which is the pull weight adjustment.

I agree 100%. Excellent group with iron sights and it has a LOT to do with the person behind the trigger.

Good deal. I flushed my 52D trigger with denatured alcohol, blew it out with compressed air and then used a high quality instrument oil to lube it. It definitely improved.

My T-36 Weaver has enough length to mount it for a comfortable cheek position on the stock without "crawling".

However, I can see where shorter scopes could present a problem.

A carbon ring forms in the chamber at the mouth of the case. It's caused by the burning powder creating a buildup of deposits. It generally takes a large number of cartridges to cause the ring but in...

While you have gotten some good advice about ammo to try, I'm going to go in another direction; scopes.

If you intend to shoot at 50 yards or greater, a 3~9X scope in unlikely to be the best...

My repro Winchester 52B is less than 200 above your serial number and doesn't have iron sights. Yours is the first I've seen and IMO it's looks great.

That's a nice old slow lock and while the triggers aren't as nice as later models, once you're used to it, the rifle can be very accurate. They are my favorite model of the 52.

My Favorite Model 52

Of all the models of the Winchester 52, my hands-down favorite is the slow lock Target 52.

Why the slow lock 52? Maybe because it was designed to resemble the 1903 service rifle currently being...

Best answer so far. The serial number will tell you what model it is.

WRT the barrel, the D was made with standard and heavy barrels.

Considering what you paid, you got a killer deal.
