Rating Definition:

Very fine. The carbine is all original and retains 85% of the blue finish overall. 95% of the original blue is present on the barrel and magazine. The barrel band has half of the original blue finish remaining. The receiver retains 75% of the original finish with flaking of the blue visible on the bottom and edges and some scattered age discoloration. The left side of the receiver has the usual scuff marks caused by contact with the saddle ring. The hammer and trigger retain nearly all of the blue finish, and the lever has some scattered edge wear. The buttplate has the usual contact wear and retains 70% of the blue finish. The barrel and receiver markings are crisp. The stock and forearm are both excellent with minimal handling wear and retain nearly all of the original oil finish. This is a fine looking original example of a Winchester Model 1892 Saddle Ring Carbine.
