They’re on ebay all the time, just search “Model 52,” not the sight number, as many sellers don’t know that.

I am aware of the frequency that eBay has them. I did a google search and a post on here showed up asking the same question with a quick response. Thought I would give it a try. 

 

Thanks for the tips on both windage screws and both springs. There are a couple on Ebay right now that are far from complete. 

This rifle belonged to s friend of mine, an 88 yo retired Marine Corp Major. His father was the original buyer. It has been shot and used but is in AMAZING condition. He took the rear sight off for a custom base for a weaver scope. He has the rear sight but to be honest he has had several strokes and he has a difficult time remembering his name, bless his heart, so finding that one will most likely never happen. 

Thank you all for your input and info.

John, get one of these and you won’t need a M82-A. I wish this rifle could talk.   Another-NS-M52-closeup.JPGImage EnlargerBig Larry

Even if I had one of those, I’d still prefer my 82A; for shooting, that is.  I replaced a 48J with an 82A!

John,

I believe that we have crossed paths on the internet before (different gun related forums), but welcome to the WACA website!

I have multiples of both types… let me know and I can send pics. 

93A prices as pictured:   Left:  $125.   Middle:  $135.   Right: $100.   

Shipping is $6.50   Tracking provided.  If insurance desired, add $2.

Will need to go out to shop and pull the 82A

I prefer USPS Money Orders… they allow immediate shipment.  Personal checks require item to be held till check clears. 

Please let me know if you are interested. Ben
