What is the proper scope base for a Ranger 22LR with heavy target barrel?
I seem to recall that may be the same gun as a Stevens 416.
Most of those guns did not have drilled and tapped recievers. They did have drilled and tapped barrels for old style target scopes. You will probably do better to take it to a competent gunsmith and have him drill and tap it to fit a currently available scope base.
Heavy water is water with some gases extracted.if you put it in a barrel and put the barrel in water the barrel would sink.Theonly reason Hitler wanted heavy water was because heavy water is used in atomic bombs.the only place he could get the heavy water was Norway. fortunately the Brit's blew up the only cargo ship carrying the heavy water back to Germany...some heavy water is lost in a lake somewhere in norway...lost in…
Did early marlin 7000 or 795 with clip mag come in wood stock with the heavy barrel and in what years or serials?
Depends on the gun- the mass of the barrel, the size of the cartridge, and how rapidly it is fired. A heavy barreled .22 target rifle will barely become warm to the touch- a light barreled .308 sporter will become hot enough to burn your hand after 5 rapid shots, and a belt fed machine gun can turn a barrel red hot.
i would like to start with the fact that your Winchester model 52B was 1 of 3,004 rifles made by Winchester in 1946.The model 52B which you have(the B suffix to the serial number) was made in 3 variations.The model 52-B target,The model 52-B heavy barrel which has a heavy barrel,with adj.sling swivel up front and a single shot adapter,and the model 52-B bull gun with extra heavy weight barrel.The prices that I will quote…
The Remington 513 T is an excellent target rifle. Last manufactured in 1968, good ones are hard to find, since they tend to be well used. They have the long solid barrel, with Redfield micrometer sights that are just excellent. Very accurate, but heavy. Average but good condition available for $400 or so, but good ones cost $1,000.
While a little vague in your description,The model 52 target rifle is going for between 400 dollars in 60% original condition up to 750 dollars for a nice specimen in 95% condition.You can add to these value,s if it is a heavy barrel model.You can add more value also if it is a model 52B with the redesigned action improved stock design,these were made in 1940-1947.
