Could someone look at Gunbroker auction 135687020 and ID the action. Seller claims it's a win 52 . I don't think so but I have no idea what it is. Seller also claims the cover on top is removeable.

It's no doubt, a Winchester 52, but the Sleeve ( Top Cover ) hides the complete serial number. If a single shot adapter is used, then it could be an A, B or C model. Lots of work went into the engraving, but that Pink stock would have to go. If you can find out the serial number, we can tell more about the action.

After a second look at the photo's, it appears to be a model A or B. The action was sleeved and made into a left port. The sleeve could be hiding some imperfections. Trigger does look factory, but could have been modified.
