EGW Winchester 52 mount



Log in to see fewer ads
Any feedback on EGW aluminum for steel mount for Winchester 52. Spoke to EGW and they clarified the aluminum mount was 5.57" long and the steel was 6.67". Anyone use either and issues with stability? How far above the front ring does the bottom of the mount set? I have a Winchester 52B with bull barrel. Is the 0 MOA the right choice with .875 muzzle diameter?

Thx

I have one on a Kimber 82, same mount, in aluminum. 0 MOA is correct for a bull if you want 0 MOA . It's plenty stable with a T-36 mounted on it. The steel is kind of overkill, but to be honest if they had had both when I bought mine I might have opted for the steel.

I have one mounted on a 52B Bullgun, no complaints. Mine is aluminum. I probably would have bought the steel too if it had been available. A few more ounces but whose counting with a 12 lb. rifle. The bottom of the base is .150 from the top of the front receiver ring. I try to be careful not to put too much downward force on the scope when handling and transporting but it seems pretty sturdy.

I have Warne QD rings on my T-36 and they do a good job returning to zero.

I just put one on my 52B yesterday. Put a Leupold 2-7 by 33mm on with weaver medium rings.
Haven't shot it yet but it looks great and appears to be strong enough.

I use 2 on different 52D's. No issue that I can find. Been only 4 years though.

I have one of the aluminum models on a 52 pre A and it is very stable. EGW is great to work with, they even made a custom MOA rail for that rifle. Best of all, I can put the rifle back to factory condition if need be.

I have the aluminum rail on one of my 52D's. My only complaint is that the rail is a little short on the back end. The scope needs to come back a little more to suite me. Not a huge issue but it would be perfect if they took 3/4" off the front and added it to the rear.

Which moa rail to choose will depend upon how far out you may want to shoot and where the reticle is sitting in the tube for your up close distance.
For instance, the rifle Ive just been working with that has a 0 moa rail has been used at 50yd just fine. I recently decided I want to reach out and discovered I only have enough elevation left in the adjustment to make a bit past 100yd, then 'topped out'. That means my crosshairs center is well above the lens optical center and totally wasting all that range of adjustment below.
So, with the rail and scope as is I centered the reticle (via the 'mirror method') and shot a tall target at 50yd. My poi was 10" low, that is 20ish moa! A +20moa rail should be pretty much spot on.
I suggest you do similar to at least determine how much of an 'moa' rail you need to be centered for your close distance so you will have your 'top half of up' available.
If you want max. 'up' you will need your crosshairs -0-ed for up close in the below center. For my example that would to be use at least a +30, even better a +40 rail.
And, yeah, imo the longer the rail is on the back end would be a good thing unless maybe you are shooting a lot of prone.

If you get a set of Extension Rings, it could do the same thing.
