I bought a early model 52 Winchester that looked pretty good on the outside but the bore was rusted and pitted from end to end. As purchased it was at best a good paperweight so I had the barrel relined by a local gun smith. IIRC this was a Brownells liner and the liner was $37.50 and $50.00 to install at that time. When it was completed you had to look hard to find the seam between barrel and liner and it was once again a shooter. A lot of young Scouts got their firearm safety training and their first taste of position shooting with that gun. When my work moved me away from the area I donated the 52 to the local troop and I suspect they are still learning on it.
