Description:

This is an excellent example of a Winchester Model 1892 Carbine that was manufactured in 1924. The carbine has a round barrel, full-length magazine and steel carbine buttplate. The barrel, magazine, receiver and buttplate are blued. The hammer and loading lever have a casehardened finish. The straight grain walnut stock and forearm have a satin varnish finish. The carbine is fitted with a Lyman "DB" receiver sight with locking lever and folding peep made specifically for the Model 1892 Winchester. A blank is fitted in the rear sight dovetail on the barrel. The carbine has a steel front sight blade mounted on the barrel block. The left side of the barrel is roll-stamped with the two-line legend: "MANUFACTURED BY THE WINCHESTER REPEATING ARMS CO./NEW HAVEN. CONN. U.S.A.PATENTED OCTOBER 14. 1884." between the barrel band and the rear sight dovetail. The caliber "25-20 W.C.F." is roll-stamped on the left side of the barrel between the rear sight dovetail and the receiver. Oval "W/P" Winchester proof marks are stamped on the top of the barrel and the receiver. The upper receiver tang is roll-stamped: "MODEL 92/-WINCHESTER-/TRADE MARK REG. U.S. PAT OFF & FGN." in three lines. The serial number is located on the underside of the receiver. The left side of the rear sight is stamped with the Lyman running deer trade-mark followed by "LYMAN'S PAT. JUNE 25.95".

Rating Definition:

Excellent. The rifle retains 97% of the original blue finish. Wear is limited to some minor finish loss on the muzzle and barrel band. The buttplate has a gray brown patina with some very light pitting on the heel and toe and some minor scratches on the right side. The stock and forearm are excellent plus with nearly all of the original satin varnish finish. The barrel and receiver markings are crisp. This is an excellent example of a Winchester Model 1892 lever action carbine.
