WIN 52(R) Tang Screw



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello everyone:

If someone owned an Winchester 52(R) or probably the Browning version & needed
the Tang Screw Winchester #B2563075 where would they find one? Gun Parts & MGW do not have it. If anyone knows who I could contact I'd certainly appreciate it.

Regards, Vince

Vince, I would try calling Browning (636-287-6800) and ask them if they have one in stock. I believe Browning and Winchester are both owned by FN now, and they have a service center in Arnold, Missouri.

WIN 52(R) Tang Screw

Hello:

Thanks for looking on my behalf. I thought I was golden but as you saw it is out of stock & they told me they would not be getting anymore. Strange how Browning made 5000 & I believe Winchester (USRA) made even more & they tell me they are out of stock. Where in the name of Carrie's Corset did they all go? I'll call them both on Monday & cry the blues & see how far that gets me...

Thanks again, Vince

Does anybody know what the diameter and pitch of the screw is? I would get a metric threading die and re-thread a US screw

WIN 52(R) Tang Screw

dokey:

I have a metric gauge but none of the threaded holes would accept the screw. As I said in the post it is a very very fine thread. It is definitely metric. I'll go to the local hardware store, they have a thread checker so maybe they can tell me what it is...

Thanks, Vince

Vince,
MGW has the tang screw escutcheon part# B2563076. Give them a call and see if they can provide the thread size. If it turns out to be M6 x 0.75 pitch I have the screw

I would be surprised if this is a metric thread. Most gun screws are fine thread- 6-48, 8-40, 10-32, 1/4-28, etc....
Have you checked the gun screw assortment at your local Ace Hardware? Most Ace Hardwares now have a guns screw section in their nut and bolt section.

Because the guns are made on Japan the screws are Metric, including the screws on the triggers

The screw is a M5x.5, an extra fine thread metric. If you can't find a suitable screw, you might consider using an original Win. screw and escutcheon. You can always find these. The through hole in the 52R tang is large enough to use the original Win. screw which is slightly larger in diameter, so shouldn't be too difficult to convert if desired. EDIT: The 52R tang screw is 1.265" long under the head; 1.360" OAL.

That screw is, in fact, a M5x.5 metric screw, as SBS states. Certainly the repro tang hole and a Winchester screw head could be altered to work. The repro escutcheon, however, would likely need to be carefully drilled out and then replaced. In other words, I doubt it will just pop out (mine was epoxied in and would not pop out, when I made my repro 52 Mannlicher), and trying to pop it out might result in more than the escutcheon popping out . I think I would keep trying to find the proper screw for your repro, and go with an original as a last resort.
My best fatherly advice.

TBR

I may actually have one of those screws lying around from when I was working on another repro. I'll check and get back.
