M52 restocking



Log in to see fewer ads
I've had a standard target barrel put on my A model's receiver and picked up a C Sporter stock from Gunville they had on hand with enough width for the heavier profile. Brownell's didn't have an inletting guide screw to fit, so I had a local machine shop make me one. The factory screw is 12x36.

MSC has the stock and a die to cut the threads but it was looking like $50 shipped, for half that a friend at the local shop turned down some 1/4" stock and threaded it to make what was needed.

I don't know if the B's and newer used a different bolt, but if you're restocking one and it measures about .219" x 36tpi it's the same and unless you can find another source it's down to making your own or maybe buying a spare screw and cutting the head off of it to act as a guide.

The ebay dies would likely work fine, but check your action screw first as the later versions may not be the same as my 52A.

52A uses only one action screw. It is .220"-36
52B uses 2 screws, rear is same as the front screw used on the A. Front screw is 1/4-32.
