Womack



Log in to see fewer ads
This firearm comes with a dual stage front mount. I understand it is used to move front globe sight when changing range, without having to make 20 some clicks on the rear iron. Am expecting delivery this coming Monday !!

Last winter I purchased two 10" Womack sights in the original box from e-bay. I purchased the first one because it came with a note from his wife to the person who purchased the sight. The second 10" sight also was in the original box but it came with 3-4 of his business cards which was a bonus.

I also have 6" Womack front sight in the original box that I bought years ago. I have two other Womack sights that I purchased from Frank Boyd and Roy Oster who were well know prone shooters. If I have some time this weekend I will try to post some photos.

A good friend recently purchased a 52C with a Womack 400 barrel which shoots really well. The best part of the rifle he purchased was that it came with a custom sight mount for a Sam Moore rear sight. The rifle is a classic American made prone rifle.

Years ago I passed on a used Womack 400 barrel as the seller wanted $200 for a used barrel without any history in it. I often wish I purchased it but without any history I thought it might be a garden stake.

I love classic American made prone rifles

Bill

You gentlemen have no idea how happy I was to be directed to this forum by another member on CGN. Here's a few pics of my recently aquired 52. Until reading this post, I wasn't sure that the finish on the barrel (or even that a stainless barrel for that matter) was correct for this gun. There is surprisingly little information that comes up when you Google "Winchester Model 52 Stainless" and the info that does come up seems to be incomplete or only partly correct. Couple that with the fact that I couldn't find one single, solitary listing for a stainless-barreled Model 52 for sale, it made me really wonder.

JohnOhio,a couple of things for you.First off,i have an experimental action/barrel i bought a while back from the Winchester rifle range.It was sold to me as a barrel-action only.It is a pre-A action with possibly a sporter or standard weight barrel cut down to 22 1/2 inches and crowned/factory blued.It has no front sight but has a scope block at the rear.They told me it was used to duplicate the sporter barrel length. The measurements are,at the crown .730",at the receiver 1.00". i have pics of the barrel-action.Also i read your earlier post about the Eric Johnson barreled Remington 37's as i have one of them and a friend of mine has the other one that came from that range.Extremely accurate rifles,i just wish there was a better trigger on them. 52FAN

weren't all sporter barrels supposed to be 24" ?

52?

I have a Winchester 2.2l that I inherited from my father who was a competitive shooter and who won 2 nationals.
The gun has a custom stock, custom AHUBALEK SPECIAL barrel(41856), a JUNERTV (11855) optical scope and what also appears to be a custom trigger.
My dad was born in 34 and started competing in high school so I guess the gun is from the 40's since it was originally my grandfathers.
The gun is wickedly accurate to very far distances (500 yards with no wind) and any insight that you can provide into this firearm would be appreciated

Bull guns

72686B and 103677C are both true bull guns. They both are 1.1 and change at the receiver, but they are not quite. 875 at the muzzle

Heres a pic of my stainless steel M52.
It has a Carl Zeiss Zielklein scope (3 post reticle) with AF Stoeger claw type scope mounts. Not sure if the checkering is factory or not. Still has a good amount of the finish left but there are spots and scratches throughout showing the stainless steel.
