Gentlemen,

Mah possee of 52's.

Closest: 52E w/ scope (Lyman LWBR 20X) original owner had put on when rifle was new in 1973. The E is simply stunning, a 99.5 % gun!

52C, one of Kenny Leasure's guns (kenny won smallbore @ Camp Perry in 1967). Redfield 3200 24X

CMP 52D Unertl 24X

52D Barreled by Robert Finley (smallbore shooter & gunsmith from Houston Texas area in 60's & 70's). Trigger by Karl Kenyon (need I say more). Action sleeved & stocked by Johnny Chapman (Johnny built guns for the Olympics, he is from weatherford Texas). 36X Sightron Big Sky (on updated SurplusRifle.com design clamp-to-the-blocks cantilever scope base/mount.

me too!!

Hey can i get in on this!!!!!!!! I bought this "C" from the original owner, said it had maybe 300 rounds down the bbl. I don't know how true but i beleived the guy, looks almost new anyway! He said far as he remembers he never took the action out of the stock. I'm leaving it just like it is, i don't see no reason to break the seal -shoots perfect! Ok i am braggin but it's the only 52 i have and i like it, lol!!


I don't have many maybe 10 or so rimfires but the 52C is my favorite. My newely acquired CMP 40X is a close second! joe

52's

Okay, here we go......

This one is a speedlock gun in unmolested condition with a 12x Litschert Scope....The only original gun I have...



This one is a D in an HS precision silhouette stock, the factory barrel has been turned down, fluted, set back and rechambered........Karl Kenyon trigger as well...the gun now wears the Leupold BR 24x shown....The other gun is just an Anschutz 54...



This one is a C Factory barrel has been turned down to a sporter contour, the stock is a 52 sporter stock, 10x Leupold scope, and Canjar trigger...



This one is a C set up to shoot 4 position 50'..........stock is an old fajen.......the hardware is Freeland stuff........20X Unertl Scope, and Canjar trigger....



This one is also a C set up to shoot 50' indoor.........Again an old Fajen stock, All of the hardware is Anschutz, except for the trigger guard, it is Freeland/Winchester International.....scope is a Redfield 3200 24x boosted to 30x by Bill Ackerman.......trigger is Karl Kenyon




And last the newest addition, which is not even in my posession yet.....It is a C Set up for BR shooting, It wears an 8-32 Burris signature, the seller wasnt sure about the trigger, the previous owner said Kenyon, I think it is Canjar though.....The barrel on this one has also been set back and rechambered....
This one is probably going to get tore down and put in a master class thumbhole match stock for 4p shooting as well..............

Can we get a 52 pics sticky launched?

Hello all,

Glad to see the forum added the 52 sub. I have been going through the shooting boxes we used back in the 60's & have some nice period NRA manuals and even some embarrassing targets from when I shot as a kid.

For the picture sticky:



We used to pack up this 52 and a 61 for the NRA matches we shot as kids

Likely to be the only 52's I'll ever own, though I'd love to have a C sporter....






52C which has a replacement barrel of identical dimensions of its original, which I'm heartbroken to say, is lost to the ages. The original, which must have been some sort of special order, had all the original,normal winchester 52 roll marks. I had the barrel changed about 20 years ago, and in my ignorance at the time, had no idea that it was not a common 52 barrel diameter, I let the smith get rid of the old barrel.
Early pre-A, bought as a project rifle to build into the sporter I couldn't afford otherwise. a work in progress....

DPSTX, I'm sure you know that butt hook is mounted upside down, don't you? I like that Richards stock. Can't tell for sure in the pic, did you have the bolt handle reshaped?

Crow Feather,
In the competition I shoot in, we use the hooks as shown. We shoot standing up with a barrel rest. Rifle kinda hangs on you when you shoot.
Yes, I cut, turned and reshaped the bolt handle on the little one.
