My Browning 52 Sporter is
BA104NZ496

I bought it NIB in 1992-3 (I think). Put it in the safe.
Still unfired.

WELCOME to RFC. Thanks for the info.

Yours is only the 4th Browning in the "BA" series of serial numbers that we have recorded; most do not have the "BA" prefix. Did you get it new?

Thank you for you welcome!
Yes, I purchased it new. I found this forum/posting hoping to learn more about the BA prefix.
Is there any $ premium for a BA Serial#?

The only ones I have seen mentioned are here in this forum.
Thanks.

No premium that I know of; it wasn't general knowledge that they even existed until recently. I thought it was a typographical error the first time I saw it in an auction listing. It wasn't until I saw another one on the rifle that I realized it wasn't a typo. In two cases, the serial number was lined through on the boxes, changing it to the "BA".
I don't see any premium associated with the different prefixes in the serial numbers of the Winchesters, BS vs WBS vs NR vs NP.

Just purchased used.
Winchester 52
Satin finished stock
pencil barrel
serial number: BS4915
Looking forward to getting a scope mounted and taking this rifle to the range. I am very impressed with the smoothness of the action and the fit and finish. I had never seen or handled one of these rifles until I picked this one up at my FFL yesterday. Pictures and range report to follow. Bob

Got Lyman iron sights added and mounted an old Litschert 10X for the first trip to the range next Tuesday.

New Low Serial Number

Hello saxmaneagle,

I just bough another 52R, this one has a very early NR serial number and is unfired, in the box with papers. The rifle is a standard Winchester marked pencil barrel, serial number:

10NR800018

I think this number is a bit earlier than your earliest listed number. Thanks for compiling all this data, it has turned out to be a valuable resource for all of us who are fans of these fine rifles. Here is the one I bought today:

Late to this party, but here a several more:

Browning pencil barrel satin finish SN 04144NZ496
Browning pencil barrel satin finish SN 02728NZ496

Both these purchased within the last two weeks with boxes but lightly used.

Winchester pencil barrel glossy SN BS4829 - purchased used, no box

Recently sold the Winchester - could be quiet accurate but terrible cold bore flyer issue.

Thank you for your honest assessment of your gun. Some folks would say something like: "It is very accurate and will shoot Remington Thunderbolts into 1/4" groups at 100 yards all day long if I do my part."

I have found that these guns frequently come from the factory with very poor bedding under the front action screw resulting in poor accuracy. A good bedding job will often turn them into great shooters, and many of them have great accuracy potential. They also like good quality ammo.....along the line of SK or Eley or other match grade ammo.
