Anyone ever shot one? Any info you can offer on accuracy or just general history of the firearm would be cool.
I found one today and picked it up because its something different that I don't have.

I take it you have an H&R M12?

Winchester had been supplying the US military with their Model 52. Used as a trainer rifle.
Winchester had the contract to supply "replacements" for .22 training rifles without competitive bid.
The Army wanted to order more Win 52D/E models to replace rifles that were worn out.
Winchester said "no.. not interested... at all."... Gave up the contract.

Then the Army was forced to open it up for bid.
H&R "cloned" the Win 52 with their M5200, and so the H&R M12 was born.

Stocks are as ugly as a salt treated fence post. Extremely good rifles. May need some trigger tune up, but can run with $2500 rifles. Not a lot of them made.

Cool. Thank you. I've heard that they are said to be super accurate but that's about all I've heard about them. Sound like it may have been $200 well spent.
