JC Higgins Model 52/Sako L46  222 Remington  Guns > Rifles > Sako Rifles > Other Bolt Action
Description: ok guys,ive had this in my safe for some time and found it today when i was going thru my goodies ....



this is stamped J.C. Higgins Model 52 on the barrel, but in actuality it is a pre-vixen L46 clip fed sako in 222 remington..the receiver is stamped sako rhimikii (spelling) from what i found out about it from a firearms historian i spoke to is that years ago when the store brand gun was young and booming (no pun intended) they used to get the majority of there firearms from outside manufactures. the model 52 in particular was purchased directy from sako with the only change to the gun being the barrel. they were fitted with a "sporter taper" long barrel (cant find my tape but i think if i remeber correctly this one measured something 28 or 30"...). after a few hundred (under 1000 he said) jc higgins discovered that buying rifles from sako for a store brad gun wasnt by any means cost effective and they couldnt keep the prices low enough to please the public, so they stopped. the model 52 was the only high end rifle that jc higgins put out on the market

you can cross reference the model 52 here:

anyway, enough history...LOL

i want to pick up a single action revolver for a friend, so this is going to go bye-bye.....i also believe this rifle falls into the C&R range

rifling is nice and sharp,blueing is in great shape (about 95%,there a little wear of course on the bolt handle,muzzle,etc from use),nice walnut stock,etc. no scope, but it does have the sako weaver mounts on it.when i first got this, i hunted with it for awhile and put it away and forgot about it. sell for $550 shipped, or trade for single action revolver ,such as a ruger vaquero,cimarron p model,beretta stampede,taurus gaucho or ??? in 3 1/2" to 5 1/2",45LC prefered, but other calibers considered.
