Hi hillbilly shooter. I'm new to the site and just started benchrest shooting, acquired a winchester 52c. I don't know if you got the trigger figured out, but according to my book on 52's if you remove the bolt, the first screw but end holds the action to the stock the next screw, slightly recessed and smaller is your trigger adjustment. Turning the screw clockwise will increase the trigger pull and counter clockwise will decrease the trigger pull.
Hope this is helpful. By the way the book I'm referring to is"The Winchester Model 52" by Herbert G. Houze.

Here is something you can do that will not hurt anything. I learned a long time ago from some old timers that the trigger mechanism needs to be free from all oil or it will be very touchy. You could use some gun scrubber to completely degrease the trigger and then use a light coat of lighter fluid (Naphtha) and let it dry out.....this will leave just enough oil to keep it from rusting. Try this and see if helps.........it can't hurt.

I have a 1948 era 52b that has an adjustable trigger, the pull weight is adjusted by removing the bolt and accessing the screw at the back of the receiver, there is also a small sear engagement screw up under the front of the trigger. Good luck, hope this helps!!
