Default Winchester 52c

Does anyone have any information on US Property marked 52c rifles? I am looking at one that has AFPG stamped on the barrel. I have seen the US Property marked rifles but not AFPG marked ones. Any info on the AFPG?

It must mean "Air Force Premium Grade", but I have no information on an AFPG 52C.

Default I have one

Well, not a 52c. Mine is a Remington 40x, US Property stamped with the AFPG stamped on the barrel. The action is bedded very high so the barrel only touches the tuning screws in the barrel channel. I guess that was the best they could do to free float the barrel in a 40x stock.

Mine came without paperwork so I sent in a request to CMP - mine was sold by CMP in 2010 or 2011 (can't find the paperwork at the moment).

I did a little research on Rimfire Central when I bought it. .22s weren't part of the AFPG program so it would have been done by the AFPG group as a favor for a military competitor. There's at least one other 40x AFPG owned by someone on the Rimfire Central forum.

Sorry to be so sketchy on information but there's not a lot on AFPG .22s.

The AFPG 40X that I have is stamped on the left side of the barrel a few inches from the muzzle end, small characters perfectly spaced and in straight line. My understanding from past info is that the afpg rifles were selected for accuracy and used for competition, there are more M1 Garands than smallbore rifles that I have seen information about.
