1988.8.350 | ca. 1935 | L: 42.25 in, Barrel length: 22.75 in | 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. This Model 52 rifle is one of a sample lot made in Winchester's experimental shop, before fixtures were ready for regular production. It was made in 1919 for a shoot at Caldwell, NJ, and placed in the factory collection on October 25, 1921. Special features include: snap-on sling mounts, serrated trigger for pull and over travel, and receiver tapped for scope mounts. | Needs inscription and dimensions. | Lyman rear sight.

Essentially, the Model 320 rifle is a modified version of the Model 310 with a clip loading feature to make it a repeater. A companion 22 Magnum rim fire rifle, the Model 325, was announced, but never produced. The M/320 was last listed in 1974 (Barnes: 1980). The modified stock on this Model 320 indicates that it is a prototype, and not a final production piece. | magazine/WINCHESTER/22 S.L AND L.R./barrel and receiver/[Winchester proofmarks]/ | Cataloged by BCD 4/91.

It was the most famous visible hammer repeating shotgun made in America. This short barrel shotgun version was extremely popular with law enforcement agencies during this century--a few are still in use.

This model sold in reasonably satisfactory quantities, although handicapped to some extent by the much earlier introduction of the hammerless action by competitive manufacturers. About 342,001 were made (Watrous: 1966).

Although the Model 42 in design and appearance closely resembles the Winchester Model 12, it was not a copy of this model but was in all respects a small, lightweight shotgun developed especially for the 410 gauge. The M/42 was discontinued in 1963; about 159,353 were made (Watrous: 1966).

This model was to be developed as a sort of a Junior Winchester Model 70, to handle the 218 Bee, 22 Hornet, 25-20 Winchester, and 32-20 Winchester cartridges. Factory records show the first delivery of M/43 rifles to warehouse stock on February 4, 1949. The Model 43 was the first postwar development in Winchester center fire rifles. It embodied the well-proven principles of the famous smooth, fast Winchester bolt action that adapted it to that highly popular sport known as pest and small game shooting. Discontinued in 1957, about 62,617 were made (Watrous: 1966). The right side of this Model 43 is completely cut away from the wrist to the rear sight, exposing the bolt and trigger mechanism and magazine arrangement.
