Weird 52B



Log in to see fewer ads
So Iíve got this thing and no matter what I do the bolt will not come out. I know Iím supposed to close the bolt while holding down the trigger to take the pressure off the seat then push the trigger forward from the back lift the bolt and pull it out but the trigger will not budge forward. Any ideas?

Also, this one has an AL stamped along the side of the loading port on the receiver. None of my others have this? Any idea about that?

Thanks,

George

Got the bolt out by manipulating the safety and pulling the trigger at the same time.

Removing the bolt on a 52B action is completed by simply pulling the trigger to the rear to drop the sear and then removing the bolt. The method you describe is for a 52 C/D/E which uses a micro-motion trigger. The 52B is a speed lock trigger which is very simple in comparison.

Bill,

I get that, but that doesn’t change the fact that that’s what I had to do. I suspect someone must have put a later trigger in this thing. I bought it a few years ago and just now got around to messing with it.

The "AL" is simply an inspector's stamp. Almost all 52's have them up to the E's. I have cataloged over 50 combinations. Some were just 1 & 2 digit numbers, some 2 character letters. The "AL" show's up periodically on the B's through out the 60XXX's and up to the early 70XXX s/n's. There was also a diamond stamp used on some of the port openings as well.
It is nothing of any significance.

And this one falls smack in the middle at 65. Thanks again.
