Known as the King of the .22's, the Model 52 has been described by firearms historians as "perfection in design." The Model 52 features a non-rotating, rear-locked, cock-on-closing bolt-action design. The Model D-derived receiver is cylindrical, bored and machined from a forged billet, and of substantial thickness. The bolt's dual locking lugs are part of the rotating bolt-handle collar, which provided a camming action to seal the breech on closing and extract the spent case on opening. Dual-opposed sprung claw extractors are inlet into the sides of the bolt, providing controlled cartridge feed and a fixed blade-type ejector is located at the rear of the loading platform. This bolt-action rifle features a heavy barrel, an adjustable tube front sight, a Redfield International adjustable match peep sight, a receiver-mounted scope base, and a bipod attachment point. Its wood, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
