Sorry, no way to tell for sure since there are no surviving records, that relate a s/n to configuration. I'd go for the sporter!

Hello to all from Finland!
I have recently acquired a M52 that does not have any, at least any normal serial numbering in the action. The rifle has been exported to UK at some point (Not English Make stamped into the receiver). How it came over to Finland is a mystery. In the right fromt side of the receiver is a number: 998, which cant obviously be the serial number. Gun is single shot, no magazine opening, heavy 28 barrel, 7/8 diameter from the muzzle. Diopter sights are missing. Any info about manuf. date would be valuable. I will try to post photos also!

Welcome. That's an unusual model 52. Please post pictures. You may get more replies if you post as a new thread.

1956 - 57
Check bottom side of barrel for date code on barrel. Winchester quit date-codes in 1956. That will also get you close.

I just acquired a 52-D model serial number 1076XX-D Single shot, no magazine.

It came to me with the original target stock as well as a great condition 3-P stock W/ palma rest, sling and keeper, and an aluminum hooked butt plate. It has the micromotion trigger and the speedlock bolt. Barrel is D&T'd for Unertal blocks. Redfield diopter rear sight fitted with matching globe front sight. Shiny crown.

The factory original stock is inlett for what I believe is a barrel rest block, but it is not with the stock. is it available?

What can you all teach me about what I bought? year of manufactur, proper furniture ? configuration, trigger adjustment procedure, any other facts you think I need to know.

I intend to shoot some BR-50 matches at my local R&GC and perhaps venture into a 3-P match or two.

Thanks, Paul in da swamp

My book shows 1962 as the year of production for your rifle. This may or may not be correct as there seems to be a fair amount of discussion about the accuracy of some printed material on the 52.

There was a bedding screw block there. There were two screws that were accessible through the two holes in the stock. The screws had detents and put pressure on the barrel as tuning device.

My D stock was bare and I found the parts on here and e bay. There is a ton of information here in the stickies and a google search will find much more.

Here is a schematic of your rifle.

I would suggest you post the question along with pictures of rifle in the regular 52 section of the forum. You will get a bunch more responses there. Perhaps the moderator could move the existing post?

Wow, Thanks very much for the prompt and helpful reply's.


Gun parts shows the barrel rest/tuner as "in stock", they are pretty proud of that piece though. What effect on accuracy will the "tuner" have? Is the factory stock likely to shoot well enough for my needs without it?

Would I be as well or better off just using the "aftermarket" stock for everything? (The custom 3-P stock seems to fit me pretty well for offhand and sitting, haven't tried prone yet, but a range day will sort that out...

If you all don't mind continuing my edification, I'm paying attention.

If a Moderator could move this thread to a better location, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks again,
Paul in da swamp

Here it is number 15xxx
Someone buggered up the Buttstock end. Looks like they may have had an aftermarket adjustable buttplate/pad or something on it.
I’ll address that ASAP ... haven’t shot it yet. Sooon, soon.

I picked up a 52 that is numbered 50519B. It came with a scope that has very few markings on it. The scope has the letters "R. A. LITSCHERT" and the numbers 2160 stamped below it. The scope has screw on aluminum caps on it. The front objective has a scale starting at 0, then a 1, 2 and 3. I was told that it is a Unertl scope but I know nothing about this type of scope. I was also told that the scope is missing a recoil spring and the hardware to mount the spring. Right now the scope flops back and forth in the front mount. Could somebody point me in the direction of the parts to complete the scope.
Could somebody tell me the approximate manufacture date of this rifle please? Any other description in easy-to-understand terms would be greatly appreciated. I know very little about the Model 52 and I know zero about this style of scope. I really appreciate any and all help. Thank you in advance.

Early Model 52

I believe this is a "Pre A" gun. Serial is 11756 (1928?) with no "A" suffix. All original except that it has been converted to the speed lock. It has the early finger groove stock. Thought you might want to add this to your database.
