Shot my 52-1 yesterday. The biggest thing on model 52's is consistency in the ammo you feed them. Once you find a Bullet/powder/crimp your 52 cycles reliably and is accurate, use that load. Mine likes The Hornady 148 gr HBWC. I use W231 although I have loaded with Bullseye, I would rather use W231. I trimmed a bunch of brass just to use in my 52s, all the same headstamp and vintage a long time ago and still use those cases as they don't 'grow' with the light loads of the 52 and can be reused numerous times.
Other than the magazines being expensive and hard to find, its my favorite target pistol.
I have 2 52-1's and one 52-2 but shoot one of the 52-1's as I have a set of great target grips fitted.
