Got an urgent text from a friend, his son had found a 52B Sporter for $1100! Finally got all the pertinent details after telling of the fake NIB auction guns and fake 52 Sporters. Turns out it’s a pretty nice gun, just not an original. Rather clever bit of ad copy but obviously not an original.

Yes, for sure it is the later M52-B Sporter. $1,100 is about the going price.   Big Larry

He was right and is proven right on a regular basis. Poor sucker.
