I have a rifle "Model 52 Winchester .22LR" but it is has a lever action, not bolt action, which is what I find in reference to Model 52 anywhere online. Really odd duck as far as I can tell. Perhaps special order?
It has a fancy checkerboard design on the hand guard and butt stock, ivory ball on lever and inlay in hand guard.
"Made in USA Winchester Repeating Arms CC Newhaven CT patented.11.18.25.December.9.19.9.February.17.March.30.April.27.1920"
I am attempting to disassemble to clean and would appreciate any info available.

It sounds like a single shot action of some kind barreled with a Model 52 barrel. The first thing to do is find out what it is. A lever action M-52 its not.

Winchester sold brand new barrels for many years. A Model 52 barrel was about $12. Somebody repaired a Low Wall with one, I'm guessing. To a novice, a Low Wall fits 'lever action' just fine.
