Finally got a 52C



Log in to see fewer ads
I got this out of Kansas. I don't think it's the Bull Barrel. Came with a Unertl 20x scope with the Unertl mounts and the 10 shot mag. Can't wait to shoot it this weekend!

No, it is not a BULLGUN, but it is a good looking rifle and great combination of rifle and scope. Ditch the 10 rd. magazine. Just does not look right. They just get in the way. Big Larry

Nice scope....and the rifle looks nice too.

I agree about the ten round mag.....just doesn't look right on that gun.

A single shot adapter works as well, unless you're in a hurry.

SS adapter is the way to go. I have one in most all my M52's except for rifles made before their advent. Most of the M52 heavies are shot from benches. With a 20X Lyman STS mounted on my M52-C BULLGUN, I cannot hold it long enough to get a shot off. I does need wheels. Big Larry

Very nice rifle. I love my 52C. I got five, five shot mags when I bought mine. I use them on windy days; when there is a lull in the wind, I make hay while the sun shines. My C is my most accurate rifle. Enjoy that piece of art.

Yes, the ten rounder doesn’t look quite right. Hope you like the gun.

Geez, maybe you should take the mag out, take more pictures and start over with a new post. Gorgeous C, with or without the appendage.

The 10 rounder

may look a bit odd, but at the matches where we are shooting 100 yd NRA targets, 10 shots per target, it sure helps get rounds down range when the wind cooperates!

Now this is really ugly. I did remove all the sights and make it bone stock. It is a minty 1934 Pre "A". Traded the rifle off. Big Larry

The 10 shot mags sell for twice or more than the 5 shot mags.

They are scarcer. I think they were an option that many folks overlooked. The m69-A series came with two 5 rd. magazines. One for Long and Long Rifle and one for Shorts. Yes, the 10 rounder is more expensive, especially in 22 short which is seldom seen. I have a few in my parts box, but never use them. Big Larry
