The top of the barrel and receiver are marked with the Winchester oval proofs at the breech. The upper tang is marked "MODEL 1892/-WINCHESTER-/TRADE MARK REG U.S. PAT OFF & FGN." and the serial number is on the bottom of the receiver.

Near fine. The carbine retains 40% of the original blue finish with scattered scratches and the receiver faded to a mottled brown patina. The wood is very good with and added swivel base on buttstock, scattered scratches, dings and pressure dents. Mechanically excellent.
