I think Seewin may have some (but of course could be mis-remembering).

Best Regards,

What is the difference in the plug for other various models?

B models onward were all the same; sometimes minor differences in the OD depending upon how they were polished down to match the back of the firing pin.
The flange was actually on the firing pin body itself, not the plug. The plug used on those particular Speed Lock rifles was very similar to later plugs as used on B's thru E's, but it had a relatively flat head.
Early Slow Locks had no plug at all, later Slow Locks used a very small headed plug to fill the previously unthreaded hole in rear of firing pin.

Here is a picture showing the 3 basic firing pin plugs used on the 52. As mentioned in an earlier post, the early slow locks up to about s/n 10500 did not have a plug nor were they tapped. Around 10500 a change was made to tap the ID of firing pin head to .280-40, and add a counterbore sized to accept the plug head. Early plug threads were not tapered. A change was made later around the time of the Speed Locks to taper the threads. If you look close, you can see this in the picture.
The picture from L to R is: 52 B,C,D&E, 52 Speedlock & A models, 52 Slow Lock after approximately s/n 10500.

Have to plead poor memory on the plug having a flange on it (and I own a few A models). Seewin has sorted it out as usual.
