Description: Making available out of my private collection………. I have an original Winchester model 52E International Match 22LR rifle with original accessories. This rifle is in outstanding condition with virtually 100% of the bluing intact. It has a gorgeous high luster blue finish unlike anything I have seen on 52’s other than the E series. This rifle has been carefully borescoped by myself and the chamber, rifling, and muzzle crown show no signs that this rifle has ever been fired. The bore was hand lead lapped at the factory and is still in as new condition. These particular models had a factory machined, countersunk flat muzzle and this one is flawless. The bolt shows signs of only being installed and function operated once or twice. This rifle comes complete in the factory original Al Freeland laminated international style stock. This stock was factory bedded in Bisonite and is in excellent and unaltered condition. The stock shows very minor handling marks from many years of moving from one collection vault to another. Included with the rifle are Redfield International rear peep and Redfield International front globe sights. Also included are the original rubber butt pad and the original hook along with the spacers for both. There is only very slight tarnish on the aluminum butt components as should be expected for a rifle of this age that has been stored in climate controlled vaults. This light tarnish could easily be polished out by a trusted restoration expert if the collector so wishes. The rifle includes an Al Freeland leather sling that is in almost new condition however, I am not certain that these were a factory option with these rifles. Even so, I am including it since I received it with the rifle. The original factory palm rest comes with the rifle as well as the original factory hand stop with sling attachment swivel. This particular model of 52E was only produced in an extremely limited number. The last time I saw this model in similar condition sold, it went for $5400 back in the summer of 2004 at an auction in Northern Illinois. I will personally disassemble and pack this rifle for shipment via UPS ground insured to your FFL dealer. You might not see another of these for sale for many years and shouldn’t expect to find another in this condition. Questions welcomed from serious collectors only please!
