Daughter in-law just bought one. Winchester collector.org dates it at 1968. Funny cause model didn't start till 69. Saw some early seventies in 1224xx, this is 12386x. I adjusted trigger down from 2.5lbs to 6oz. Does that mean it's a Kenyon? She wants to sell original stock and forearm grips(one palm and one large D shaped laminated grip) that matches laminated original stock. Any idea of value? Bore looks very good and gun shows very little wear. It appears to have a mat black oxide finish. These weren't blued? Does anyone know what bases fit this action? Thanks RFCers

Don't let her sell the original stock! Buy another stock by all means if she has a specific style or use that warrants it. An original stock would be very hard to replace and without it she will devalue the rifle considerably.... Just my 2 cents!

Put your post on the Win. 52 subsection and you'll get more help. Most of these were a matte blued finish. Good advice to keep the original stock, handstop and palmrest (D shaped item). Weaver 85 bases are correct on this action. Probably not a Kenyon trigger if it was at 2.5 lb.; mine won't go near that high. The Kenyon trigger did not resemble the Win. trigger at all. The Winchester trigger had the same outward appearance on the C,D&E models. Many sources are incorrect on dates manufactured and numbers produced for the D & E models.

My guess is that the subject rifle was sold in the 1973-74 range. These I/M's were all built in the Winchester custom shop, and not necessarily in numerical order. I have one that is NIB that is about 100 rifles before yours, and it has 1973 newspapers used for packaging the accessories in their box.
I am pretty sure I know what rifle you have and it does have a Winchester trigger, not a Kenyon. Also, as I recall the stock had been modified in the comb area. I agree w/ previous comments, keep the original stock with rifle. It is worth much more with rifle than one would receive if sold separately. Stock should me marked in barrel channel with s/n to rifle .
The matte finish is correct for this particular rifle. Winchester changed from a polished blue on the I/M's at about s/n 1238XX.

Thanks for all the reply,s . If Weaver 85,s is correct I will order a set. I believe it is a Winchester trigger as you stated. Thanks again RFCer,s.
