    What do you need to know?

    let me know what kind of info your looking for at mjpetrov@acsalaska.net.

    If the Johnson barrel is still on the original rifle I can tell you who it was made for.

    John,
    You won't find anybody more knowledgeable about the older gunsmiths. He has a lifetime of love and research into them. I am speaking of Michael Petrov. He has some nice books that he has published about the old masters.

    Titherington

    John,

    He was a custom gunsmith from Stockton, Ca. as already stated. Besides making his own barrels he was known to use original Win. 52-B bolts and make his own receivers or altered Win. receivers. I don't know if he did any wood but some of the stocks I've seen on his rifles were outstanding and some a little out.
    On some of his bolt guns he did use Smith triggers but don't know if this was the norm.

    I bought a Win 52 last night.
    Glad I found this thread about Titherington, because that's what it says on the barrel.
