You already have them or maybe win them in an auction today? If you know the history I would keep the better shooting one.
If they are the ones I may be thinking of the B would be a nicer squirrel/woods gun. I may be guessing though.

Which to keep.................

I prefer B models but that's just me, most folks like the C model better because of its Miracle Motion trigger. C Models are more sought after and will bring a higher price than a B model.

Keep the C mainly because of the trigger which can be re-worked down to ounses

Shoot them first, then decide. Accuracy wins every time.

Keep them both. You might regret selling in the future. I have had my share of seller's remorses.

I have owned

one B, which I sold years ago. I have 4 Cs and prefer them all to the B I had. The trigger is much superior to the B, even if you don't have it altered to safely reduce its pull weight. I would suggest you don't if you have a really nice C...keep it stock. Find another C trigger to alter if you must have a lighter weight pull. I have owned D and E and still prefer the magazine fed Cs. Two are in the 94000 range and have outstanding wood to boot. --greg

Blond, brunette or redhead?
Keep the one that trips most of YOUR triggers.

I have a B and a C. I got the B first and thought I was in heaven with the trigger on that rifle. I still very much like it and use it often on squirrel hunts and other outings. However, once I got the C I realized what a really great trigger felt like. I will probably always keep the C for a target rifle, but the B is destined to become a sporter very soon as I don't have a need at the moment to get rid of one of them for any reason...

About that B trigger: I have a few very nice triggers on different rimfire rifles ( Anschutz, Walther etc.) I even have a 52 E with a Kenyon trigger which is just amazing. I must admit the trigger on my 52B is MUCH harder and heavier, but somehow, I shoot quite well with it. Go figure...

Not hard to explain. The trigger weight has almost nothing to do with ability. As long as the trigger breaks cleanly, crisp like broken glass the pull really isn't that important to me. I have a Canjar LP at 4 oz's that is nice, but I have a BSA MKII at 3 lbs that is easier to shoot.

Dickn52, I think you are right sir. The trigger on my 52B may be heavy but it is very predictable and breaks very cleanly.
Thanks

Gilbert

The C trigger

is head and shoulders above the B. There were a lot of complaints about the B in the area of a felt vibration at letoff. It had little to do with the crispness, breaking cleanly, etc. Winchester went to great lengths to come up with the C trigger. If you have a C in nice condition, likewise a B, and have to get rid of one, let the B go.
