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.
