That is not unusual in the D models. I have recorded at least 13 different stamp symbols for the D models, and many have none at all.

My E

I picked up my new to me E today, it came with a bunch of Freeland stuff and original (I'm guessing) paper work. I have it all apart cleaning it now and will post photos when it's back together.

I purchased my 52D at auction last night. Serial number is 105289 D. Condition is overall excellent although the trigger is sluggish and likely requires cleaning. I suspect it sat for years unused and the trigger lube has gummed up a bit.

It has the standard weight barrel and came with a 15X Davis Optical Co. Spot Shot scope. Davis took over the Lischert scope company.

Trigger

If you'd like your trigger reworked to free it up contact Peter Domanski at [email protected] . He took my trigger and reduced the weight from 3 pounds to about 3 oz. I love it.

doubs43, thanks for posting the info on your new acquisition. That is a very early D. It is 20 guns from the earliest D I have on record. For some reason, a large percentage of these early D's were standard weight rifles like yours. Just an FYI, this rifle was sold back in June through Rock Island Auctions also. I'm sure all the trigger will need is a good cleaning. Your trigger should be the earlier style used on the C models.

Steve, I bought it from Montrose Auctions, Montrose, GA. They have become a large seller of firearms over the years and have a 400 ~ 500 gun auction about once a month.

Interesting that this rifle was sold that recently by Rock Island and ended up here in GA.

I think this happens a lot anymore. I'm seeing more and more rifles appear in consecutive auctions from different companies.

VF, thanks much. Very nice & scarce scope as well. They didn't make many 30X's. They were only 4% of total STS production.

Steve,

Any idea how many 25X STS's there were? Or is that a common one?

Steve,

Thank you for the information. I guess this is a good day. I have two 25X and two 20X. They are marked differently as to the location of the 25X markings.
