I was told the bolt knob was done by Jerome Glimm, the checkering by Mike Maxwell, and the stock by Englebert Olaffson. Not sure who put it all together.

Reading the name Olaffson jogged my memory. I'm also certain now that is the rifle I nearly bought but backed out at the last minute, probably because of the left-hand cheek piece. Just stunning. I remember that English walnut Anschutz, too. As I recall, it was a real bargain for that highly figured stock.

The seller, at the time I got the 52C custom, had one other rifle for sale. It was on a 52C action again, engraving and gold lines, the stock was neutral or right-handed, and not checkered. And was really 1 of a kind highly figured wood, the best I've seen on a completed rifle. Makes any of mine look plain. Maybe that was the rifle you passed on, TBR ?

Here is my 1st "A" circa 9-35 although an unmarked A model it is a heavy barrel. The Winchester Gods have been good to me since I found out about the "52" & this forum. Thanks for all your help guys a very learned group here.

Benchrest 52

This is my Winchester 52 that I am thinking about retiring from USBR competition. It's still in the original stock; however, the stock was built-up to shoot USBR "Custom" class. It shoots (for me) 238-243 when I do my part. It held the club record for several years (another owner/shooter) with a 246 score (forgot the X-count) until 2012. I am the latest owner of a remarkable old gun that's been in the club for years.

The serial number indicates it was made in 1934.

Wow. Hard core, Old school. That one makes me want to grab an old cloth coat and some Mark III and hit the range. Gotta have a leather mitt too.

My 52B, "Bertha" - I've had her since '73 or so - previous holder had her since new as the entry fee to the college rifle team.

Well-used and much-loved - still a blast to shoot even if I am a South-Paw.

Here is my first 52. It has been in my wifes family for 4 generations now and it still shoots great. It needs a bit of work and pieces but i look forward to the challenge. Her Great Grandfather was an Armourer in WWI and supposedly won quite a few matches with his creations.

Nice custom 52, WATCHADDIC. Did you buy it already customized, or did you have the work done?

It was time to modernise Bertha, as I'm finding shooting with the sling to be a little painful these days, and my eyes don't "do" peep sights the way they used to. Enter the Bertha-Tac, courtesy of a scope mount from EGW that replaces the rear dovetail perfectly, and a UTG 'pod under a BSA Sweet22.

Target underneath (obviously a found a good batch of Target Spots today) was shot at 25 yards using only pod and shoulder. No room on the table even if I did have a bag.

I'm not unhappy, for a 76 year old rifle and slightly younger shooter.

Here are my 2 Winchester 52's. The top one is a 52B sporter repro. The second is a 52C manufactured in '52. It is in what seems to be a custom thumb hole stock. Both rifles are of course great shooters.
52B Sporter repro

1952 52C thumb hole stock.

If anyone has any info on the thumb hole stock I would appreciate hearing from you.
