And probably a few Rimfire Bullseye Matches with my newest acquisition; a Winchester Model 52B, made in 1949, complete with a 10X Lyman Targetspot Scope and Redfield Olympic Front, Redfield Palma rear sights including a total of 10 front sight inserts. When you look at the magazine please note that it is a factory single shot magazine; the follower wings are wider then the body. I've found a source for 52B 5 shot magazines, $60 each for NOS!

I've had some guns on consignment at a friend's gun shop for a while; he sold a Benelli M1 and an 870 Marine Magnum so I took this very clean target rifle in lieu of cash. I also got a Browning, made in Mexico Basketweave Western Style High Power Holster and a Bucheimer "Semi Shoulder" snub nose revolver holster; a high rise paddle holster that unsnaps and can be used as a belt holster.

Its a very clean example of a non-US marked early postwar .22 target rifle:

Despite me naming the photos as "52D" it is a 52B as noted by the serial number!

Very very nice! One of the best target .22's in history. The scope alone is worth some serious bucks.

We were discussing the effect of crowning a barrel on another board and I mentioned the flat cut muzzle of some target rifles.
This rifle has a very clean muzzle with no dings, very nice.

The ends of the lands don't show. Are these muzzles counter bored?

Should have mentioned earlier, that Brownells has 5 round after market mags for about $15. I have a bunch of them and they work great. It's the same mag as the M-75, M-69A, M-69, and a few others. Your original single shot mag is very valuable. I would suggest that you stash that one and shoot with the 5 round mags.

Oh, don't get any after market 10 round magazines. Even the factory original 10 rounder don't work particularly well, and the after market ones are really problematic.
