Description:

The Winchester Model 1892 is one of the firearms of the American West and has been one of the firearms most widely used in western movies and television series. It was stronger and sleeker than Winchester's earlier "pistol caliber" repeaters like the classic Model 1866s and Model 1873s. This carbine dates to 1905 and has a pinned blade front sight behind the front barrel band, two-line address and patent marking ahead of the notch and folding ladder rear sight, "44 W.C.F." on top at the breech, saddle ring on the left, three-line model and trademark on the upper tang, and smooth carbine stock and forearm.

Rating Definition:

Fine with 50% plus original blue finish, flaking on the receiver, some mild oxidation/pitting, and general mild overall wear. The wood is also fine and has some scrapes and dings consistent with period use and smooth finish. Mechanically excellent. A solid and classic Winchester Model 1892 Saddle Ring .44-40 Carbine.
