Tulsa show 52.



Log in to see fewer ads
Found my first 52 at the big Tulsa show last weekend. A pre A speed lock made in 34 with a 32 barrel stamp. Got it for a fair price and it had the original 10 round magazine. Bonus! No crack on the lug. Need to decide on a scope. Leaning towards a unertl, fecker, or lyman but may buy a EGW mount and put a modern scope on. Saw several other 52s there including a consecutive serial number pair from 34. Only 150 numbers higher than mine. Was tempted by another 52C bull barrel but decided against that one. Picture below.

Bought my first 52 about 2 weeks ago. Never been much of a collector but more of a shooter. Well it didn't disappoint. The pre A model I bought came with a what I think a 25x lyman scope that is clear as a bell and does quite well with the gun. Shot several groups .5 and under even with a terrible 8 lb trigger. Changed the springs and have gotten it down to about 4.5 lbs. I am thinking about taking it to the gun smith to see what he can do with it. It's been a blast shooting a gun that old (I think mine would date about the same as yours from what I have read)with a target scope that was made probably in the 50s but I need to do some more digging on the scope. Hope yours has a lighter trigger than mine but it's very accurate for it's age and great fun to shoot. Good luck with your purchase.

20X was available pre-war, but the 25X not until 1949. Still, I wouldn't worry about it.

Something's seriously wrong with your trigger if 8# is what you've got. Have you tried adjusting that screw under the bolt?

I actually saw the screw on the back of the sear when it came out when changing springs but I actually knew little about 52s and didn't know which way to turn. It did show some sign's of wear or modification. Barrel looks to be in great condition but the receiver does show flaking of the blueing.

The slot of that tiny screw is easily damaged, but try to turn it clockwise. Helps a lot to slather all points of contact with that super-slippery red grease.
