Wisner's magazines, Brownell's has best price, but is out of stock.
Link to E-Bay has them available at higher price, but with free shipping. Good luck.....

I can remember when they had the "W" marked magazines at all the gun shows for $10 or less. Bins full of them. Big Larry

Not any more though, I bought Wisner mags for my Remington 513T and Win. 52 a few years ago for $11.99 from Brownell's. I'm not sure Wisner is making them anymore.

Yep. Some years back I bought a slew of the "W" marked and "R" marked mags from Brownells for $9 each. My original 52 mags are kept in storage while I use the reproduction mags. I bought the "R" mags because the Remington rifles came without the mags.

I don't have any "W" marked magazines. I am very anal about all my rifles having correct magazines. Big Larry

I have the original mags for each one but knowing their value, I use the repros. If a repro is damaged or lost, I'm not out much. If I should sell one of my 52s, the original mag would go with it.

The Wisner "W" mags work great in my models 52 and 75 and I'm sure that the "W" is for Winchester (not Wisner), just as the "S" on the Wisner mags is for Savage for Savage model rifles (that just happen to work well in Anschutz and Cooper rifles as well). I'm grateful that these quality Wisner mags are available as finding original mags for these rifles would be a REAL challenge!

Don't forget the Browning 52 repro magazines. IMHO, very high quality fit and finish and work in all my 52's, just marked Browning if that is an issue.

Most M52 shooters single load. There are single shot adapters out there too. Better choice for single load. Big Larry
