1988.8.370 | 1919 | L: 45.25 in, Barrel length: 28 in | Gift of Olin Corporation, Winchester Arms Collection | Due to wide use in World War I, the bolt action rifle became popular in America during the 1920s. A concurrent interest in precision small bore competitive shooting led Winchester to produce the Model 52. Designed by Thomas Crossley Johnson, the Model 52 has become the leading arm in small bore accuracy. It is available in a variety of styles and weights, and has a magazine capacity of 5 cartridges. The right side of this demonstrator model is cut away from the rear of the bolt to the forward portion of the receiver, exposing the complete bolt and trigger mechanism and magazine arrangements. | Needs inscription. no written record for this firearm. | 1988.8.370.JPG | 1988.8.370.jpg | rifle | bolt action | firearm | magazine | blued overall | one-piece walnut | stock | round barrel | flip-up vernier | rear sight | varnished | trigger | front sight | serrated | forepiece with finger grooves and barrel band | heavy | post/blade | adjustable for windage and elevation | sling swivels attached | semi-pistol grip | target | repeating | checkered steel buttplate | detachable clip | tapered | finish | barrel | Winchester Repeating Arms Co., New Haven, CT
