Manufactured in 1916. Pinned blade front sight, folding adjustable carbine rear sight, saddle ring staple with ring mounted on the left side of the receiver and full length magazine tube. The barrel has the two-line address/patent information and ".32 W.C.F." on the left side. Winchester factory oval proofs are on top of the barrel and receiver at the breech, and the three-line model/trademark information is on the upper tang. Mounted with smooth gumwood forearm and straight grip stock fitted with a carbine buttplate. The carbine has two tags, a brass tag stamped "78.1/0324" and a metal tag stamped "1215". The carbine is accompanied by a typed letter dated September 7, 1994, from David's Firearms Ltd. that states that this carbine was part of the original Winchester Collection housed in New Haven, Connecticut, and is listed on page 172 of the reference book "Inventory of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company Firearms Reference Collection" by Thomas C. Johnson, Edwin Pugsley, Thomas E. Hall, Frank Burton et al, published in 1991. The Olin Corporation donated this reference collection to the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming, and they in turn put this carbine up for sale at public auction.
Excellent plus, near new. The carbine retains 99% original blue finish with a couple of dents on top of the receiver ring as well as some minor scratches and some wear from the saddle ring. The wood is also excellent with a few very minor dents and light handling marks. The markings are sharp. The action is excellent. An exceptional Model 1892 SRC from the original Winchester collection.
