Manufactured in 1927, this is an example of a very desirable Winchester Model 1892 Trapper Model Saddle Ring Carbine with a 14 inch barrel. The carbine is equipped with a pinned blade front sight and an adjustable buck horn rear sight. The left rear of the barrel is marked "-MODEL 92- WINCHESTER-/-TRADE MARK- 44W.C.F.-", and the Winchester oval proof in on top of the barrel and receiver at the breech. The upper tang is marked "WINCHESTER/TRADE MARK/MADE IN U.S.A." and the serial number is on the bottom of the receiver. The left side of the receiver has a saddle ring staple and ring. Full length magazine, two barrel bands, and mounted with a smooth forearm and straight grip stock with a carbine buttplate. Accompanied by a letter from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives dated January 23, 2014 listing this carbine as being removed from the NFA (National Firearms Act) and classified as a curio and relic.

Rating Definition:

Fine. The carbine shows 40% original blue covered with a black Japanned type of finish applied some time ago, with a brown patina on the balance. There is some light oxidation. The wood remains fine with small piece absent on the upper left side of the forearm and the buttstock sling swivel has been replaced and a portion of the slot crudely filled. The barrel band has a crudely replaced pin in lieu of a screw, which would be correct. The markings are clear. Mechanically excellent.
