Model 52B Bullgun

Hello Big Larry,

My Bullgun was manufactured very close to your heavy barrel. This gun is from 1948, check it out:

Yeah. The receiver and serial number date to 1940 according to Steve, but the rifle was not made until 1948. Is your rifle a flat top? My BULLGUN is a little earlier than yours. # 59584B. Has "40" bbl. date. Big Larry

Flat Top or not?

I dunno Big Larry, it just has the two small flat areas at the rear of the action. Is this what a flat top looks like?

No, a flat top is just like the earlier rifles and will take the 82-A flip up sight. The "B"s were the last to have this feature. Yours is a standard round top. Big Larry

Flat Top vs: Round Top

Thanks Big Larry!

I really wasn't sure about this.

I have been wanting to post these pics of one of my C bullguns #104336C. It ties into what John in Ohio had mentioned earlier in this post concerning the later finishes on the C barrels as well as the conventional blued finish on C bullgun actions and barrels.
This is a very interesting gun, it is absolutely like new and look's unmolested. The interesting part other than the fact it is a C bullgun and has the later Dulite finish on barrel which was authorized by Winchester in 12/1960, is the fact that it has a D stock and cartridge ramp. The spacer block which is sandwiched between the ramp attaching screw head and action takes the place of the magazine holder housing, and look's like a factory piece. It is completely machined, polished and blued just like a Winchester part. It 's definitely not some amateur adaptation. The gun falls into the late C/early D production, so have always wondered if it came this way from Winchester. It sure look's the part.
Steve

This should be a sticky. Very scarce, maybe even rare. 1931 dated heavy bbl. marked NICKEL STEEL. For those who have never seen one. Big Larry

BL put it up on the picture stickey or just leave it here. Next there would be a stainless barrel stickey then other rare guns. I think 8 stickeys is enough. Just my own opinion. Mike

Cannot possibly be too many stickys. Personally, I would much rather see the rare guns as opposed to the every day M52 which we see posted every day. I would love to see a stainless M52. Big Larry

Here is my 1 vote view on the subject. Big Larry is correct the nickel bbl is rare and worthy of it's place in History.
I agree with w5i2n, 8 stckies is enough, just my opinion. When i started off the stickies i was learning and i figured there would be some more important things come along and maybe we could weed out the lowest priority items. 0r we can have 200 stickies if thats what everyone wants.

Me i think i would vote to delete the sticky on the bottom of the list and add the "RARE" 52's. I think we need a "rare/special 52's" Sticky - be perfect to start off with larry's nickel bbl pic. and maybe vote what goes in the rare sticky, maybe fun to do??

I like the idea of a "rare 52's" stickey. Don't think my one B would qualify though. BTW Big Larry, love that nickel steel model! What years did they make those? I have a Model 12 shotgun in nickel steel that my Grandfather bought new in 1926, so I've always been interested in the nickel guns.

Ok, according to Professor Wikipedia the nickel steel and stainless barrells were offered briefly in 1930-31.
Just an idea, but we could change the "bull" guns stickey to rare guns.
