Default Winchester 52D

I recently acquired a 1962 Winchester 52D. Gun was originally sold by CMP IN 2005. US marked above serial number. My understanding is that CMP Model 52's were used a lot and got beat up . This one is in overall excellent condition. 97-98%. Also , is there a way to get owners manual for 52D? Thank You.

I'm sure it did. However, when I got my Winchester 52D from the CMP it was in really nice condition. I did clean up and put a coat of finish on the stock, but otherwise it was in excellent condition.

Most were in pretty good shape.

The metal was generally nice but the wood had a lot of fresh gouges from where the rifles had been thrown into boxes like cord-wood for shipping to the CMP.

As a rule they were not as nice as the 40XB's. 95% or better examples of the Remingtons were pretty common.

I was able to upgrade some by buying replacement stocks from Reese Surplus for about $35 a pop. The rifle is now much nicer than when it came from the CMP.

I have one that was kind of rough - very heavily used, worn metal and beat up stock. It shoots the lights out. That is the one that shoots the lights out.
