Just wondering: did anyone ever make an aftermarket trigger for the Winchester 52D? Something light and crisp for target work?

Just curious . . .

You have a pretty good trigger in that 52, have you adjusted it any?
My C model breaks off at 2lbs and would be sure yours would done same.

I am not dissatisfied with the trigger. I haven't adjusted it since I got it from Seewin about a year ago. But I was recently shooting a Vudoo with a Bix N'Andy Sport Tac Pro trigger and it was just so dang crisp. Just got me wondering. . .

The Winchester trigger can be modified to allow a reduced trigger pull weight. Look up Kenyon trigger mod.

Canjar for sure, Kenyon almost certainly and there are probably more.

The "Win 52 Trigger Info" sticky thread should answer most/all of your questions.

Dokey,

The trigger you did for me has a 2.8 ounce trigger pull, when measured with a Wheeler Electronic Trigger Pull Gage.

Can anyone do a good job on a B trigger?

Ask Dokey. He did a beautiful job on several D triggers that I know of.

Winchester Trigger

Adjust your Winchester trigger

My 52D trigger is my favorite among all of my rifles including the 40x Jewel trigger

Its light, crisp and has no slop at all

Love the Winchester Trigger!

Unfortunately, no. Even Karl Kenyon could not do anything with the factory B trigger.

There are Canjar and some Kenyon replacement triggers for the B but they are few in number and expensive. For whatever reason Kenyon refused to make B triggers for the last few decades he was in business.

Just a note, not all D's have D triggers. Some of the early ones have C triggers.

52d

I checked my 52c with a trigger gauge and it broke at 14 oz.
