I have a 52B bull barrel rifle I purchased new back in 1977-78 . In my travels since then the bolt action assembly disappeared, after finally giving up on finding it in one of my many other boxes of odds and ends I’ve decided to see if I can find a replacement for a reasonable price. 

I would appreciate it if someone could point me to somewhere I look for one.

Thanks

Sad situation, but one more illustration of the folly of separating a bolt from its rcvr. for any reason other than cleaning.    Another bolt may be found (not likely at a “reasonable price”), but the one with the matching ser. no. is probably lost forever.  And even though any bull-brl. gun is relatively scarce, having a mis-matched bolt will always detract from its value. 

Most likely place for one to turn up is ebay, but beware of the ones taken from repro 52s.  Good luck, as it will probably be a long search.

Curtis, some additional info is needed on your rifle to determine what bolt you need. Winchester did not make a 52B Bull barrel rifle in the 1977-78 time period. The only model 52 rifle they were making at that point was the 52E, which takes a different bolt from a B model. Could you post pictures of the rifle or possibly the s/n to determine exactly what you have?
