For sale is a 1931 Winchester Model 52 .22 target rifle with what appears to be a post WWII Fajen stock. Serial number: 18714. Stock and barrel in remarkable good condition, has original "ladder" rear sight.

Not sure how to post photos, so please email: larryglover92@outlook.com and I will send directly.

Asking $900.00

A word of well-intentioned advice:  check SOLD prices on GunBroker.  Any 52 with a non-original stock (except by the best custom stockers) is not viewed favorably by most collectors.

Thank you and I most certainly will! I just found out the stock is not original, the rifle has been in my family since before I was born and that's the stock that has always been on it.

Can you give any advice as to it's value? I looked on Gun Broker and couldn't find any Model 52's with aftermarket stocks.

Thanks!

Hi Larry,

I just sent you an email.  If you can send me some pictures I can help you with a value for your Model 52.

Also, send a close-up picture of the safety tab mount on the receiver (looking down from the top).  These receivers are prone to cracking which will also reduce the value of the rifle.

Best Regards,

Larry,

I got them and responded, thanks.

You are correct, it does not have the original stock.  From your close-up photo it does not appear to have a crack at the safety lug (which is good news).

It is a "shooter grade" rifle and $400-$500 (max) is about what it would bring on Gunbroker.  Sorry, I know you probably thought it was worth a bit more.

Here are some recent comparable prices for you, these rifles have the correct stocks on them -

Hope that helps.

JWA, many thanks for the information. Not disappointed at all in the price as I had no idea what they are worth.

I hate selling guns, they begin to feel like family after awhile. OTOH I sold several guns a few years back to “refocus” my collecting efforts and will do so again soon. So many guns, so little funds.

New price - asking $500.00. I didn't realize the stock was not original. This is a great example of a "shooter" rifle.

Thanks
