I just bought a 52B heavy barrel on a big auction site. Can't wait for it to get here in a week or so.

Make sure you buy several brands of bullets to see which it will shoot the most accurate. Hope you have a great finding out what it likes. Congratulations!

I love my 52b, but wish I could find a better trigger for bench rest shooting.

It amazes me how so many people want to change the triggers on these old rifles. Mine is bone stock and will shoot 100 X 10X at 100 yards with Red Box Eley. One hole. Of course, that is with a 20X Lyman STS. I am not a Master class shooter. Big Larry

I echo Big Larry here. My B has quite a heavy trigger but it is so crisp and predictable that I shoot very accurately with it. I have several other rifles with much, much lighter ( and better ) triggers but I still like the old 52B.

Whether the trigger is a hindrance to someone or not depends a lot on what you are using it for, shooting style, and shooting preferences. My B is a very accurate gun.....the first time my son shot it in a 50 yard benchrest match, he scored a 250 on the IR 50/50 target. And yes, the trigger can be mastered....with a little patience and practice. But I personally prefer the triggers on my D and E guns which can be set well below 1 lb in weight....makes it a bit easier to shoot those good scores.

Other than the trigger, I put my B right there with my D and E as far as accuracy is concerned.

I agree with pump .22 too. I have an E with a Kenyon trigger that is just plain fantastic to shoot. But I still like to shoot my B, even with a stiffer trigger. Just a whole different experience.

Yes, but I didn't do this one. My buddy did with my 52-B. Big Larry

No trigger changes...............

I have owned several 52B Sporters and never felt the need to change the trigger. My current Sporter is a custom built on a pre A and I shoot it as well as my Springfield 1922 M2 which has a Timney trigger.

If you rig a 3" wide plate

to the front bottom of the stock and shoot from a quality front and rear rest there is no reason to lament over trigger pull weight. Shoot what you have and you will get into the rhythm of rifle and trigger. Find a youtube video on trigger pull basics or a printed article on the web. More important is finding ammo that it really likes and getting a good set of wind flags and learning how to use them. I shoot quite a few BR rimfire fun shoots and am amazed at the shooters that don't use flags and demean them. I keep telling them that they are doing so at their own risk score wise!! Enjoy your new rifle.

The 52B heavy barrel showed up and the screw holding the Redfield sight was all bent. I'm looking at getting a Lyman Targetspot but I still want to get that screw replaced. Anyone know were I can find a replacement screw

If you are referring to the large 1/2" coin slot/knurled OD screw on side of sight, I make replacements.

Targetspot or Super Targetspot? Big difference. Big Larry
